Air Fryer Dessert Recipes

Did you know that you can make desserts in an air fryer? I’m talking everything from donuts (which makes sense, since you can air fry anything that you can deep fry) to lava cakes. Lava cakes! Amazing, right?

I have an older air fryer that still works okay, but it’s seen better days. As soon as I get a little extra cash, I’m upgrading to a Ninja Foodie. I have their Auto-IQ cooker (I don’t even know if they still make it) and use it at least twice a week, so I imagine the Foodie with air fryer function will be a smart purchase? Thoughts?
