Air Fryer Donuts

4-ingredients – these are the BEST!!


  • 1 can Jumbo Flaky Biscuits like Pillsbury Grands
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 5 Tbsp butter melted


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees. To do this, simply turn your air fryer on at 330 degrees and let it run for about 3-5 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix the cinnamon and sugar.
  3. Set aside.
  4. Open the can of flaky biscuits and cut the center out of each one using a 1-inch round cutter.
  5. Lightly coat the air fryer basket with coconut oil spray (you can also use olive oil spray). Do not use a non-stick spray like Pam (those sprays could be harmful to your air fryer).
  6. Place the donuts (not holes), in your air fryer.
  7. Bake for 5 minutes at 360 degrees. As the doughnuts are cooking, melt the butter.
  8. Using a silicone pastry brush, coat the baked doughnuts with your melted butter.
  9. Then cover the donuts with the cinnamon sugar mixture by dipping and rolling around. Use a spoon to coat the top as well.
  10. Gently shake off excess cinnamon sugar.
  11. Serve doughnuts hot.

Donut Holes

When you air fry the “holes”, set your timer for 3 minutes and repeat the process of dipping in butter and then adding the cinnamon and sugar mixture.
