These guilt-free treats are designed to not only tantalize your taste buds but also align seamlessly with your wellness goals. As you explore the joy of mindful eating, each bite becomes a delightful fusion of flavor and fitness. Our recipe elevates your dining experience with perfectly balanced, approved donuts—a harmonious blend of nutrition, taste, and weight-conscious choices. The careful selection of ingredients, including reduced-fat or lower-point options, sugar substitutes, and light or reduced-fat butter, adheres to  guidelines without compromising on the deliciousness of the final product.

The step-by-step instructions ensure a hassle-free preparation process. Beginning with preheating the air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit, this temperature optimization guarantees even cooking and the desired texture. The creation of a cinnamon sugar mixture adds a flavorful coating that not only satisfies your sweet cravings but also aligns with  principles. Transforming standard biscuits into donut shapes and coating them with this mixture achieves a perfect balance of taste and health. Using a non-stick cooking spray suitable for air fryers, coupled with careful monitoring of cooking times, ensures a seamless cooking process.

The melted butter, applied using a silicone pastry brush, not only enhances the donuts’ richness but also adheres to the health-conscious theme by opting for light or reduced-fat options. Rolling the freshly air-fried donuts in the cinnamon sugar mixture crowns the recipe, creating a visually appealing and flavorful exterior. Serving the warm donuts immediately ensures the best texture and taste, allowing you to relish each guilt-free bite.


  • 1 can Jumbo Flaky Biscuits (look for reduced-fat or lower-point options if available)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar or a sugar substitute (check W-W guidelines for appropriate substitutes)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter (use a light or reduced-fat option)


  1. Prepare Air Fryer:
    • Preheat your air fryer to 360 degrees Fahrenheit. Allow it to run for about 3–5 minutes to reach the desired temperature.
  2. Prepare Cinnamon Sugar Mixture:
    • In a small bowl, mix together the sugar (or sugar substitute) and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  3. Prepare Biscuits:
    • Open the can of flaky biscuits. Using a 1-inch round cutter, cut out the center of each biscuit to form a donut shape.
  4. Spray Air Fryer Basket:
    • Lightly spray the air fryer basket with a non-stick cooking spray suitable for air fryers. Avoid aerosol sprays that may harm the air fryer.
  5. Air Fry Donuts:
    • Place the prepared donuts in the air fryer basket. Air fry for approximately 5 minutes at 360 degrees Fahrenheit or until they are golden brown.
  6. Melt Butter:
    • While the donuts are cooking, melt the butter in a microwave-safe dish.
  7. Coat Donuts:
    • Once the donuts are cooked, use a silicone pastry brush to coat them with the melted butter.
  8. Dip in Cinnamon Sugar:
    • Roll each buttered donut in the cinnamon sugar mixture, ensuring they are well-coated. Use a spoon to cover the top, and shake gently to remove excess cinnamon sugar.
  9. Serve:
    • Serve the warm style air fryer donuts immediately for the best flavor and texture.
  10. Donut Holes:
    • If desired, cut holes in the remaining dough or use a separate batch of biscuits for donut holes. Repeat the process for the holes, adjusting the cooking time accordingly.
