If you’ve never owned an air fryer before, now would be the perfect time to snag one. Even if you don’t typically cook full meals for yourself, the number of desserts these beauts can help you create make it worth the investment. There are plenty of different sizes—like mini air fryers that cook enough for one or two people and larger air fryers, like this best-selling option from Instant Pot—and myriad price points from which to choose, too, so you can find the air fryer that works best for you.
The best part? The air fryer allows you to make so many incredible treats without all of the oil. This means that desserts you’d typically deep fry are made healthier—but you likely won’t even notice. For those who want to satisfy their sweet tooth craving but are trying to avoid the deep fryer, these recipes are total game-changers.
