Does your family enjoy warm churros? You’ve got to try this air fryer recipe!
You’ve gotta try making these cinnamon sugar churros in the air fryer! The result is deliciously crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy in the middle. It has all the great qualities of a restaurant-style churro, minus the frying oil! 🙌
This recipe for air fryer churros results in sugary sticks of donut heaven.
The process is fairly easy and includes making a simple dough on the stove, piping the churros onto a baking sheet, chilling them in the fridge, and then finally air frying them to perfection! It may seem like a lot of steps, but it’s a straightforward process and the results are AMAZING. I promise it’s well worth the effort!
Hip tips for making this recipe for Air Fryer Churros
- You’ll need a pastry bag and a star-shaped tip to make these churros. I actually used my handy Wilton Dessert Decorator for this project and find this kitchen tool to be super helpful!
- If you don’t have a designated piping tool, you could always just place your dough in a freezer bag, cut the corner off, and squeeze your dough through the hole. This will work, but it won’t result in the same tube shape with ridges. 🙂

This fun air fryer recipe is like a sweet love note to your family, and they’ll all love you forever for making them churros. LOL! No, seriously though, these are way too yummy!
You can eat these churros warm from the air fryer with just the dusting of cinnamon and sugar, but that chocolate sauce on the side really takes this dessert to the next level. There are lots of ready-made options to choose from too, but the homemade chocolate sauce is super quick and easy to make in the microwave.
This was such an impressive treat to make in the air fryer, and now that I know how easy it is to make churros at home, it’s game on!
