Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Churros Using the Air Fryer
Does your family enjoy a warm churro as a treat?
You’ve gotta try making these cinnamon sugar churros in the air fryer! The result is a deliciously crisp on the outside yet soft and chewy in the middle perfection! It’s all the great qualities of a restaurant-style churro, minus the frying oil!

The process is fairly simple 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 straightforward and tastes AMAZING. I promise it’s well worth the effort.
Hip Tip: You’ll need a pastry bag and star-shaped tip to make churros. I actually used my handy Wilton Dessert Decorator for this project and find this kitchen tool super helpful!
Of course placing dough in a freezer bag with the corner cut off could work, however wouldn’t result in the same tube shape with ridges. 🙂
