Easy Air Fryer “Bonut” Holes

Last weekend for breakfast we tried making “bonut” holes in the air fryer.  What’s a bonut?  It’s a biscuit turned donut.  :-)

Air Fryer Bonut Holes
Can of extra flaky biscuits
Cinnamon and sugar mixture
Powdered sugar

Heat air fryer to 360 degrees; Fill the bottom of a paper bag with cinnamon/sugar and another one with powdered sugar

Use kitchen shears to cut biscuits into quarters; Lightly roll into balls

Lightly grease air fryer basket and place balls so that they aren’t touching; We did in batches

Cook for 3-4 minutes until lightly browned

As soon as they come out of the air fryer, drop into paper bags; Shake to coat


The kids absolutely loved them.  I thought they were okay but would prefer a hot Krispy Kreme.  :-)  Regardless, it is a fun thing to make and easy to keep the supplies on hand.

My parents should arrive here in Atlanta this morning – they started the drive before the sun came up.  It is looking like Savannah may be spared a direct hit, and I do hope that is the case, but the entire county was issued a mandatory evacuation starting tomorrow.  I hope that my family, friends and readers in Florida stay safe this weekend.  Know that I will be thinking of you.

  1. More air fryer experiments! Or r&d:)

    I wonder if a dough with a higher fat content may be more to your liking? Like a crescent for a beignet-type treat.

    Living the air fryer lifestyle vicariously. Gosh I love donuts.

  2. What a fun thing to make for breakfast!

    I’m glad your parents are able to get out, and have your home to go to. xo

  3. Those donuts would go great with my coffee right now! ;-)

    Please let us know when your parents arrive. With the grace of God, your father is now able to make the trip. So many need our prayers.

    Yesterday was one of the longest days of my life. It took my brother over nine hours to get from Fort Lauderdale to Kissemmee, followed by another ninety minutes to check into the hotel (with a reservation!).

    My prayers are with all of you in Dixie Land. If anyone needs assistance coordinating, looking things up or making calls, I am happy to help. God bless you.

  4. I make these all the time but I just fry mine in oil on the stove. It is one of our favorite Saturday morning breakfasts. Prayers to hoping Savannah is spared, and everyone else too.
