Healthy Air Fryer Donuts

So, if you’re looking for a healthier way to enjoy a sweet treat, these Mickey Mouse air fried donuts are a fun choice.
Air Fryer Old Fashion Donuts
To make these biscuit donuts in the air fryer, you’ll need a few things. First, you’ll need some biscuit dough. I used the Walmart brand, but the Pillsbury Grands Flaky Layers Biscuits work well and would be delicious.
You’ll also need:
- Vanilla frosting
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Non-stick cooking spray
- Tooth picks
Start by opening and separating the biscuits. Each biscuit donut will need two mouse ears and a head to make the Mickey Mouse shape. Cut out the mouse ears by using a small circle cookie cutter or donut cutter to cut out the center of each biscuit. You can also use a shot glass in a pinch.
Use the small circles to make the ears, spaced evenly on each side of the donut shaped biscuit.
To hold the ears in place, put a toothpick through the open center of the Mickey donut and through the ear circles. You’ll remove these after the baked donuts cool.
Lightly spray the donut with a non-stick cooking spray like Pam, then place them in the air fryer, no donut pan needed. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may have to cook them one at a time.
Air fry the donuts at 375 degrees for about 5 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
Remove the donuts from air fryer and transfer to a cooling rack, letting the donuts cool for 10 minutes. So the icing will stick. If you skip this step the frosting will melt off and make a mess.
Now the fun part… take the toothpicks out and frost the tops of the donuts. Add sprinkles of your choice and enjoy!
