I really love granola. No – you don’t get it – I *really* REALLY love granola. There’s something about that salty, sweet, crunchy, oaty texture and taste that just does it for me. I love to just snack on it as-is, add it to ice cream, yogurt, or smoothie bowls…it’s just such a versatile, satisfying snack. That said, I’m often precluded from making granola because of the oven preheating and 30+ minute bake time; because when the craving strikes, it strikes fast. Enter: the best air fryer granola recipe: it’s ready for you in under 15 minutes (including prep time!) and is devastatingly crunchy, healthy, and delicious.
I keep finding fun, new ways to use the air fryer and this one was particularly exciting for me. And after a couple of batches, I’ve officially perfected this air fryer granola. Think of this recipe as a base, but you can get creative by adding in or swapping out your favorite nuts, seeds, fruits, etc. – please share in the comments below if you made any fun additions to my recipe!
