How to Make Air-Fryer Churros


These Air Fryer Churros are crispy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside, and have a flavor that no one can resist! Freshly baked in the air fryer and tossed in a cinnamon-sugar mixture for a healthier dessert that's super easy to make at home.

What is a Churro?

Churros are a dessert traditional to Spain and Mexico. They are normally deep-fried dough that's been tossed in a cinnamon-sugar mixture, but taste just as delicious made healthier in the air fryer!

They're super fun for Cinco de Mayo desserts, Taco Tuesday desserts, or even weekend brunches!

Tips & Tricks for Making The Best Churros:

  • Pipe 4-inch long churros for the perfect snacking size.
  • Use a star-shaped tip for piping. I use a Wilton 1M Tip.
  • It's okay if little lumps of flour remain in the dough (it'll bake out).
  • Chill! Chill! Chill! the piped churros prior. Don't skip on this step.
  • Do not refrigerate the piped churros longer than 1 hour or they will dry out.
  • Immediately toss with the cinnamon sugar mixture, as it's easier for the mixture to stick when warm.

What to serve with churros?

  • Nutella
  • Chocolate Sauce
  • Dulce de Leche
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Whipped Cream
