  • Air Fryer


  • 16.3 oz refrigerated biscuits
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp butter melted
  • 3 tbsp milk


  • Separate the biscuits and place them on a cutting board. Use a small round cookie cutter or shot glass to remove centers. Lightly spray an air fryer basket with coconut oil spray and place a single layer of donuts in basket.
  • Air fry at 350 degrees for 3 minutes per side or until golden brown and flaky. Do this in batches. Do not discard the donut holes. Fry them separately, but for just 2 minutes per side.
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon together and place in a shallow dish. When the donuts and donut holes are done cooking, brush all sides with melted butter and roll in the sugar-cinnamon mixture until coated. Enjoy immediately!


  • An alternative to coating the donuts in a cinnamon sugar mixture is to dunk them in a simple glaze. Combine 1 cup powdered sugar with 2-3 tablespoons milk and mix until smooth.
  • To make a flavored glaze, consider replacing the milk with chocolate syrup for a chocolate glaze or maraschino cherry juice for a cherry icing!
  • Lightly coat the air fryer basket with coconut oil spray before cooking.
  • Have leftover donuts? Store in plastic wrap or an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
  • If you don't have a small enough glass to punch out the middle of the donut, use an apple corer or the top of an empty bottle (or a bottle cap!).
