My Air Fryer is getting a workout, and I literally should be buying stock in nonfat greek yogurt and self-rising flour. Yes, this is the same dough that I used to make donuts, bagels, and funnel cake!

 

If you don't have an air fryer yet, check out this post to see which one will fit you best! I highly recommend either of the ones below!

Preheat Air Fryer to 325*. Spray Air Fryer with noncook spray. Cook 1 empanada at a time in Air Fryer at 325* for 8-10 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 5-7 minutes. (Due to differences in altitude, brands of flour, etc you may need to cook for longer or shorter periods in time. Keep that in mind if yours are too doughy or crispy.)

NOTES:

The entire batch of dough is 11 points. The meat you use will determine your points, but if you use boneless skinless chicken breasts or meatless crumbles, each empanada will be 3 points.

Eggwash: I tried one empanada with eggwash just on the top, and one with egg wash on both sides. The egg wash on both sides yielded the best results.

  1. While your recipes look amazing…there are so many ads throughout the recipe. There is no print option that actually allows you to print it after it formats it to print! Perhaps it’s because I am using my iphone and not a computer! Please help I would love to follow your recipes!

    1. There is a print link in each gray box for the recipe. If you click that it will take you to a printer friendly page, then you can print as needed.
