Doing a round of Whole30 can be complicated…and if you don’t like to cook, many people find it challenging. That is where the air fryer can come in to save the day!

Air fryers can cook your food quickly, without heating up your house (so perfect for summer cooking), and they make your food deliciously crisp. But finding compliant Whole30 Air Fryer Recipes can be challenging.

I’m here to help!

I’ve rounded up 12 easy compliant air fryer recipes that you and your family will love. And they’re all so easy to make! No air fryer? Check each recipe’s notes for alternative cooking methods.

Most of these Whole30 Air Fryer recipes are the perfect sides to go with these 21 Easy Whole30 Dinners. Love kitchen gadgets (yes!!)? Check out the Paleo and Whole30 Instant Pot Recipes and my Whole30 Instant Pot category for more fun compliant ideas.


You’re going to need an air fryer. I have the Power XL air fryer, but other great options are Cosori and Ninja.

If you are interested in using your air fryer for more than vegetables (and you should be!), you will want to invest in an accessories pack like this one from Amazon.

Using a Misto is a great way to lightly spray veggies with olive oil to get the perfect crisp on your food.

If you have a pressure cooker but no air fryer, Mealthy has created a lid that turns your pressure cooker into an air fryer. Amazing, right? I KNOW. 

The Mealthy CrispLid works with any 6 or 8-quart electric pressure cooker on the market. I have one and it rules.

If you’re new to Whole30, the details and ingredients can be overwhelming. You’ll love my Trader Joe’s Whole30 Shopping List, Whole30 Costco Shopping List, and Whole30 Bacon Brands.

Whole30 recommends organic and grass-fed meat when possible. For our family, we order from Butcher Box.

The meat is super high-quality and we’ve always had an amazing selection sent each month. In addition to what they pick for you, you’re able to add specific cuts and types of meat to your box. And yes, Butcher Box has Whole30 compliant bacon!
