Thanks to modern technology, we no longer need to be experts in the kitchen to make delicious-tasting food.
One neat kitchen gadget that has made our lives so much easier is the air fryer.
Thanks to the air fryer, we can quickly and effortlessly create tasty meals and snacks in no time.
All we have to do is throw the ingredients in, turn the air fryer on, and wait until our food is hot and crispy.
Another great thing about air fryers is that we can easily stick to a diet.
One diet that’s super easy to stick to thanks to the air fryer is the Paleo diet.
Also known as the caveman diet, the Paleo diet primarily consists of lean meats, fish, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds.
In today’s post, we want to give you some Paleo, air fryer inspiration. To do so, we’ve listed 15 awesome Paleo air fryer recipes for you to try.
Today, we’ll show you each one.
Let’s dive straight in!
We’ll kick start this list with a super simple, yet delicious snack that you and your family will fall in love with.
Made in just 17 minutes, this parsnip french fry recipe is incredibly easy to make, producing golden, crispy parsnip fries in the process.
Golden and crispy on the outside, these fries are delightfully soft and hot on the inside.
Better still, you only need 5 basic ingredients to make them. The ingredients needed are parsnips, almond flour, water, olive oil, and salt.
For the best results, pair your fries with a beautiful steak.
Made in just 30 minutes another great Paleo air fryer snack are these buffalo wings.
Tossed in a classic combo of hot sauce and butter, these wings are juicy, spicy, and mouthwateringly tasty.
Despite being made in an air fryer, you’ll find that these wings taste as good as any signature wing you’ve ever had before.
Super satisfying, the only downside is that you’ll find yourself craving more.
Why not serve your wings with your delicious parsnip fries?
Paleo, nut-free, and gluten-free, the next recipe on our list is perfect for the kids or big kids in your life. Every chicken nugget lover’s dream, these crispy, golden chicken nuggets are guaranteed to hit the spot.
In just 30 minutes, you can make a batch of these chicken nuggets for a family get-together or a quick bite to eat.
Coated in crushed plantain chips, we find that the nuggets taste perfect when dipped in homemade Dijon-style mustard, which the recipe shows you how to make.
Next up, we have this paleo egg rolls recipe.
If you want to impress guests with something simple, yet elegant, this is definitely the recipe for you.
An awesome snack or appetizer, these rolls are baked, not fried, and are made using egg roll wrappers, cabbage, carrot, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, black pepper, olive oil, and green onions.

What more could we ask for?
The next recipe on our list may surprise you but yes, you can make steak in an air fryer.
This recipe shows you how to marinate your steak with umami-rich flavors before serving it alongside some loaded potatoes.
Ready to eat after just 5 minutes of frying, the end result is a juicy, flavorful steak with a great color and a consistent temperature throughout.
The beauty of this recipe is that it’s also versatile enough for you to season the streak how you prefer.
If you love fish and chips but don’t want to eat too unhealthy, give this healthy recipe a try.
With no deep frying required, this recipe calls for fresh cod, sweet potatoes, an almond flour mixture, an egg, and various herbs and spices.
With these basic ingredients, you can make a beautifully flavored dish that includes delicate, melt-in-your-mouth fish and scrummy sweet potato fries.
The sweet potato fries give the dish a unique paleo twist, while the baked fish is a lot lighter than deep-fried fish (see also ‘15 Awesome Fish Paleo Recipes You’ll Love‘).
In our opinion, there’s no better use for an air fryer than using it to cook a rotisserie-styled whole chicken. Of course, for this recipe, you need an air fryer with plenty of space. If you do, you’re in luck as the flavors and texture of the chicken are extremely good when air fried.
Seasoned using garlic powder, basil, oregano, thyme, and paprika, the end result is a super juicy, tender chicken with golden, crispy skin.
Pair the chicken with sweet potato and green beans for a true paleo feast.
With a couple of tins of tuna and a handful of basic additions, you can make some seriously tasty tuna patties for dinner.
Very similar to traditional fish cakes, this recipe helps you make crispy tuna patties in 15 minutes.
Aside from being incredibly tasty, the best thing about these patties is that they are low in carbs and versatile.
This makes them a solid option for anyone following a keto diet. Light and soft, they also make a great meal-prepping snack.
Tater tots are one of the best side dishes in America. Unfortunately, though, they’re not the healthiest.
Luckily for us, Feel Good Foodie has come up with this fabulous healthy alternative.
Made using cauliflower rice, cauliflower tater tots are crunchy, golden-colored, and well seasoned just like normal tater tots.
Thanks to the dish being made from vegetables, the tater tots are much healthier and lighter, making them a great treat for the whole family.
If you have some leftover Brussels sprouts, you have to throw them in your air fryer with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper.
After 10 minutes of cooking, you’ll be left with an awesome side dish that has a great dipping quality.
This recipe also shows you how to make a yummy mustard aioli to go with your sprouts. The combination of spicy, mild, creamy, and tangy flavors is very hard to beat.
