Air Fried Carrots in bright blue bowl with striped towel

Air Fryer Carrots

Air Fryer Carrots are a quick and easy way to enjoy roasted carrots without heating up your entire oven or if you just need a single serving.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 15 mins
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound carrots peeled and cut into 1-2 inch pieces
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt adjust to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper adjust to taste


  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F. Place the carrots in a bowl and toss with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss again to coat.
  • Place the carrots in a single layer in the basket or directly on the rack. Air fry the carrots for 10-14 minutes. If you are using a basket-style air fry toss the basket at about 6 minutes for even cooking.
  • Test for doneness and continue cooking for 2 minutes at a time, as needed. The pieces should be slightly crisp and nicely caramelized when done.


Carrots can often be difficult to cut into uniform pieces as they tend to be very different sizes from top to bottom. Don’t fret that too much. Just try to cut the pieces in similar sizes so that they’ll all finish cooking at the same time.
It’s important to test for doneness as well. Depending on the size of your pieces, you may need a few extra minutes to achieve the results you want.
