1 fresh pineapple 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil or melted coconut oil (optional) 1-2 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup (optional) Cinnamon or other spices (optional) Instructions:
- Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
- While the air fryer is preheating, prepare the pineapple:
- Cut off the top and bottom of the pineapple.
- Stand the pineapple upright and slice off the skin in a downward motion, following the curvature of the fruit.
- Cut the pineapple into bite-sized pieces or slices. Remove the core from the pieces if desired.
- Place the pineapple pieces in a bowl and, if desired, drizzle them with olive oil or melted coconut oil to help with browning and prevent sticking. Toss gently to coat.
- Optional: You can also drizzle honey or maple syrup over the pineapple for added sweetness. If you like, sprinkle a bit of cinnamon or other spices for extra flavor.
- Arrange the pineapple pieces in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Do not overcrowd; you may need to cook in batches.
- Cook the pineapple in the preheated air fryer for 8-12 minutes, or until the pineapple pieces are golden brown and caramelized. The cooking time may vary depending on your air fryer’s size and wattage, so keep a close eye on it.
- Give the pineapple a shake or stir halfway through the cooking time to ensure even browning.
- Once done, remove the air-fried pineapple from the basket and let it cool slightly before serving. Enjoy it as a snack, dessert, or a side dish.
