  • Air fryer


  • 4 frozen waffles


  • Place the frozen waffles in the air fryer basket in an even layer.
  • Air fry at 360°F/180°C for 2 minutes. Flip the waffles over and cook another 2-3 minutes until lightly golden and crispy.
  • Serve with butter, maple syrup and fresh berries if you wish.


  • Cook the waffles straight from frozen. Do not thaw them first.
  • You can use these instructions to cook any brand or type of frozen waffles. 
  • Depending on the size of your air fryer basket, you may need to cook the waffles in batches so that they do not overlap.
  • You do not need to preheat the air fryer for this recipe.
  • If you are cooking multiple batches, your second batch may cook quicker than the first because the air fryer is already hot. Check it a few minutes earlier to be safe.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
  • Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes air frying is a trial and error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better! When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
