Air fryer pineapple is a quick and easy snack or dessert that enhances the natural sweetness of pineapple while giving it a slightly caramelized and crispy exterior. Here’s a simple recipe for air fryer pineapple:


  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and cut into bite-sized chunks or slices
  • 1-2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or cooking spray
  • Optional: Honey, cinnamon, or chili powder for flavoring (to taste)


1. Prepare the Pineapple:

a. Peel the pineapple and remove the core. Cut the pineapple into bite-sized chunks or slices, depending on your preference.

2. Coat with Oil:

a. In a bowl, toss the pineapple chunks or slices with melted coconut oil or spray them evenly with cooking spray. This will help achieve a crispy texture in the air fryer.

3. Preheat the Air Fryer:

a. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).

4. Air Fry the Pineapple:

a. Place the pineapple pieces in the air fryer basket in a single layer, ensuring they are not overcrowded. You may need to cook in batches.

b. Air fry for 8-10 minutes, shaking or flipping the pineapple halfway through to ensure even cooking.

5. Optional Flavoring:

a. If desired, drizzle honey over the air-fried pineapple for extra sweetness or sprinkle it with cinnamon or a pinch of chili powder for added flavor.

6. Serve:

a. Once the pineapple is golden brown and slightly caramelized, remove it from the air fryer.

b. Serve the air-fried pineapple warm as a healthy snack, dessert, or a side dish.

Note: Cooking times may vary depending on your specific air fryer model and the size of the pineapple pieces, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking.

Air fryer pineapple is a delicious and naturally sweet treat that’s quick to prepare. Enjoy the delightful combination of the caramelized exterior and juicy interior with your chosen flavorings.
