Air fryers are all the rage right now, and we think for good reason! Despite the word “fried”, no extra oil is needed, and you can make healthy Paleo, Whole30 or low-carb meals, sides, or vegetables crispy AND quickly! These 30 Paleo Air Fryer recipes are easy, gluten free, Whole30, and family friendly ideas to get you cooking!
I LOVE my air fryer. It was a housewarming gift given to me by my wonderful friend Jen, the creator of some of the air fryer recipes you’ll find here! I’m telling you, if you have a friend you need to buy a gift for, you’ll be their new favorite person if you get them one of these magical appliances.
I know we’re all just getting used to our instant pot, and you might not be totally sold on an air fryer just yet. However, once you DO get on the bandwagon, or if you already are like me(!), this post is for you! Aside from the best ever homemade fries, hash browns, crispy chicken nuggets, there’s so many healthy Paleo foods you can make! It’s seriously amazing.
This is the air fryer I have and love:

Thanks so much for these recipes! I can’t wait to try them! I was wondering if you knew of any other recipes for air fryer fried pickles? The recipe here is only for pan frying.
Oh no! I’m sorry about that. I actually have my own recipe for air fried pickles coming to the blog soon in about a week!
Really?!?! Amazing!! I can’t wait!! 🙂 I love your recipes!
I got really excited when I saw the Air Fryer Chicken Tenders and the Popcorn Chicken recipes, but looking down the ingredients lists neither is considered Paleo. I have both gluten and corn intolerances, so these recipes would not work for me. 🙁
Oh shoot! I’m so sorry- an assistant of mine put this list together, I should have looked through it more thoroughly. I apologize. Give me a few weeks and I’ll come up with an Air Fryer Chicken Tender recipe for you that is paleo!! It’s been on my list of recipes to put on the blog for a while now anyway 😉
Awesome, I will come back to check it out then! Thank you!
Coconut Shrimp is also not paleo or GF. Thanks for putting this together though! So helpful. I just got an air fryer, and didn’t know where to start!
I’m so sorry about that – I just updated it to our recipe!! https://www.wholekitchensink.com/air-fryer-coconut-shrimp/
Also I suggest doing chicken thighs in the air fryer with some sort of meat and potato seasoning (I use Primal Palette) on 400 for about 18 minutes, flipping halfway. They are AMAZING in the air fryer, and so easy!!
These options look amazing and I will totally try them for the Air Fryer I just received.
Enjoy! You’ll love your air fryer!!
