Healthier Low-carb Air Fryer Recipes

It seems like nowadays, everyone is mad about their air fryers! They are essentially a countertop convection oven. You own an air fryer if you have a toaster oven with a fan. They are a fun way to cook foods that produce almost deep-fried food!

Air fryers quickly circulate hot air around the food, making it crispy without needing oil. You can create versions of your favorite fried dishes with very little fat, making them healthier. And, let’s face it, more safely!

Whether using a toaster oven with a fan, a convection oven or an air fryer, these dishes will hit the spot when you want your favorite fried foods without the high fat and carb content!

Air Fryer Chicken Wings


There is debate among wing lovers about whether or not they should be battered. We firmly believe that battering wings hides the best part: crispy skin. This recipe is a wing purist’s dream. You can add any sauce you like at the end, but this method will make wings crispy on the outside and delightfully juicy on the inside. That’s exactly what we want! A serving has 275 calories, one gram of carbs and 19 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Air Fryer Crab Cakes


We’re huge fans of crab cakes. But the problem with them is twofold. They can be very fatty, and the bread in them makes them high in carbs. This recipe takes out both problems. You cut out the carbs by using keto cracker crumbs or almond flour. Making them in an air fryer takes out most of the fat. You will still have delicious crab cakes at the end! You just won’t have to worry about upsetting your health goals to enjoy them. A serving has 185 calories, 2.4 grams of carbs, 1.1 grams of fiber and 13.2 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Air Fryer Jalapeño Poppers


Unlike wings, we do like batter on our jalapeño poppers. This recipe removed the batter to cut out carbs. But we’ll forgive it for the way it makes the pepper crispy. When a pepper isn’t submerged in oil, it doesn’t need oil to seal in the cream cheese. So, the flavors shine through without batter! Including extra herbs and hot sauce will make this a popper recipe you will make again and again! A serving has 104 calories, four grams of carbs, one gram of fiber and eight grams of fat. Get the recipe.

Keto Onion Rings


Few questions are harder to answer than being asked if you want fries, onion rings or a salad with your meal. We all know the correct answer is that you’ll take a salad with dressing on the side. Years of dietary advice tell us this. But the mere existence of onion rings makes us happy! Thankfully, this recipe lets you enjoy onion rings without sacrificing your dietary goals. It uses almond flour breading, and the onion rings are so tasty that you’ll have no problem making healthy choices at restaurants, knowing you can make these at home! A serving has 170 calories, nine grams of carbs, two grams of fiber and 12 grams of fat. Get the recipe.

With these four recipes, you can enjoy tasty fried foods without worrying about setbacks in your diet. Everyone should be able to indulge, and these will make you feel decadent!
