  • Cinnamon
  • Nonstick cooking spray or an oil sprayer with cooking oil of your choice

How To Make Air Fryer Churros

Making these churros in the air fryer is incredibly simple! Follow the instructions below for a super easy dessert you’ll want to make again and again.

How To Make The Churro Batter

  1. Melt butter in the saucepan
  2. Mix in water, granulated sugar, and salt
  3. Once the butter, sugar, and salt are fully incorporated mix in flour and remove from heat
  4. Let the mixture rest for 5-10 minutes or until it is room temperature
  5. Add vanilla and eggs to the flour, butter, salt, and sugar mixture
  6. Mix with your hands until it is smooth

How To Pipe The Churros

  1. Carefully cut a hole in the tip of the piping bag just large enough for the piping tip to stick through, without being able to push the entire tip through the end.
  2. Use a silicone spatula to place the churro batter into the piping bag.
  3. Place parchment paper the same size as your air fryer basket on a baking sheet.
  4. Carefully pipe 3-4 inch churros onto the parchment paper.
  5. Let the piped churros chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes to an hour (check out the trick for faster chilling below).

How To Air Fry The Churro Batter

Once your churro batter has chilled completely, this how you will air fry your churros:

  1. Carefully lift and place the parchment paper with the batter inside your air fryer basket.
  2. Lightly spray the churros with oil
  3. Air Fry at 375F for 4-5 minutes
  4. Half way through the cooking cycle, flip the churros over, spray the other side with cooking oil and cook for an additional 4-5 minutes
  5. When the air fryer churros are done cooking, spray them again with oil and toss in the cinnamon-sugar blend.

Tips And Tricks

  • Let the batter cool. It will be extremely easy to want to cook these churros as soon as the batter is made, but the will be far too hard to maneuver if the batter doesn’t have time to chill.
  • Use the fridge or freezer. If you’re not in a hurry, you can refrigerate the batter for 45 minutes to an hour for the perfect consistency. However, if you’re impatient (or just efficient) like me, you can also chill the churro batter in the freezer for about 15 minutes instead.
  • Add more flavor. If you love your churros to be heavily seasoned with sugar and cinnamon, sprinkle a little bit of your cinnamon sugar blend on the piped churro batter before you air fry it.
  • Turn it into a funnel cake. If you’re worried about your piping skills, don’t fret over making perfectly shaped churros. Using exaggerated figure-eight motions, create a funnel cake shape of churro batter on a piece of parchment paper. Just make sure it will fit into your air fryer basket.
