Air Fryer Donuts

April King
Air Fryer Donuts made with canned biscuit dough and coated in cinnamon and sugar taste like the real deal. They have less fat than deep-fried donuts and taste better than baked donuts. When you are craving homemade donuts and are short on time, toss biscuits in the air fryer and enjoy warm, flaky donuts in minutes.
