Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts

Air Fryer Brussels Sprouts come out so tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Those roasted edges are the best part and completely amp up the flavor of this easy air fryer recipe!

I’m curious how many of you have air fryers? 

They got so dang popular so quickly that, of course, I jumped right on board. Love my air fryer! 

No worries if you don’t have one yet…check out this keto Brussels sprouts recipe…basically the same thing but done in the oven!

The air fryer is super convenient for all of those frozen convenience foods that my kids always want to eat (hello, chicken nuggets) but I’ve been on a mission to use it for healthy options.

Enter these air fryer Brussels sprouts!

If you’ve only ever had grandma’s boiled Brussels sprouts, you’re probably not much of a fan of sprouts in general. I feel ya.

You just have to trust me that roasting Brussels sprouts completely changes the flavor and texture.  Give them a try and see for yourself!

How to make Brussels sprouts in the air fryer:

The first step is to chop the ends off the sprouts and peel off any outer leaves that are looking damaged or gross.

Cut the Brussels sprouts into halves for smaller ones and quarters for larger ones. 

Toss the Brussels sprouts in a mixing bowl and drizzle with a little avocado oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt.

I like to use avocado oil for cooking because it has a neutral flavor and a high smoke point, meaning that you can cook it at higher temperatures than olive oil. The smoke point of avocado oil is 500 degrees!

The balsamic adds a touch of sweet tangy goodness that works so well with these Brussels sprouts.

Toss together your Brussels sprouts and add them to your air fryer. 

Cook at 390 degrees for 10 minutes, shaking halfway through. Test your sprouts for doneness and cook a bit longer, if necessary. We like our Brussels sprouts to still be a bit firm, but they will soften up more if you cook them a bit longer.

What air fryer to use:

I did a lot of research before purchasing my air fryer, because I wanted one that held quite a bit of food. Some of them are tiny, which means that you’re cooking everything in batches. 

I went with the OMORC 6 quart air fryer based on Amazon reviews, price comparison, and size. I LOVE it! 

Haven’t had a problem yet, it’s a good size, and it’s super easy to clean. Highly recommend!

More easy low carb side dishes: 

Roasted Turnips: Another air fryer favorite!

Instant Pot Spaghetti Squash: Spaghetti squash is another low carb veggie that we love!

Healthy Broccoli Rice Casserole: Like the classic, but somehow even better!

Cauliflower Mac and Cheese: I hate to brag, but this one really is the best!

Yield 4 servings
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes



  1. Trim the ends off the sprouts and slice into quarters. 

  2. Add the cut Brussels sprouts to a large bowl with the oil, vinegar, and salt. Toss well to coat. 

  3. Heat air fryer to 390 degrees. 

  4. Add your Brussels sprouts to your air fryer basket and air fry for 10 minutes, shaking once halfway through.

  5. Test for doneness after 10 minutes. If Brussels sprouts are not as tender as you’d like, continue cooking and checking every 1 minute.


If you don't have an air-fryer, follow this recipe for keto brussels sprouts instead.

Some balsamic vinegars contain a lot of added sugar. Check for one that is around 3-4 carbs per tablespoon before buying.

Thanks so much for your innovative, delicious, and EASY recipes!! We couldn’t have done it, or maintained it, without you!!!

  2. Tried broccoli and stir fry in the air fryer using your recipe. It was great. I am planning to use your cheese sauce recipe on it. Keep up the good work.

      I’ve only made this with fresh, so I’m really not sure. We always prefer fresh veggies for roasting – the texture is so much better.
