Air Fryer Fries – Low-Calorie, Gluten-Free

Air fryer fries cuts back on calories when cooked in the air fryer. Same great taste and crispness, and a healthy alternative to deep frying.

 

French fries are a weakness of mine and I could eat them every day given the chance. I don’t consider myself to be too much a fry snob either, I just want them to be warm and fresh. These are a great alternative to eating them more often with less guilt.

 

Like the Instant Pot, when air fryers hit the market, they picked up in popularity quickly. I’m not surprised though. They are such an awesome way to cook foods that taste amazing deep fried, in a way that you can still enjoy them just as much.

It does take a bit more time to cook the same number of fries in an air fryer versus hot oil. However, it is worth the wait. It takes about 18 minutes to cook them to their desired crispiness. Depending on the size of your air fryer it may take several batches to cook them all.
