Do you use oil in an air fryer?
While you don’t have to use oil in an air fryer, I sometimes use oil in my air fryer for various reasons. Using oil before cooking your recipe in an air fryer can add a slight crisp to your food giving you that deep fry texture without the added guilt.
For this recipe, I spritz the bottom of my air fryer with some oil. I also spritz the top of the peanut butter and jelly biscuits with oil once I place them in my air fryer and again when I turn them. This helps ensure they cook without sticking and come out tasting flavorful.
What are the disadvantages of air fryer?
I haven’t found too many disadvantages of using my air fryer for some favorite recipes, but there are a few. Some of the disadvantages of using an air fryer include longer cooking times for some food, and if you lose focus easily, you could overcook your food.
Since most food is cooked at a higher temperature in your air fryer, it isn’t one of the best cooking options for people who can get sidetracked during the creation of a recipe. That’s why I highly advise you set a timer and keep your eye on the recipe during air fryer cook time.
What jelly do you use for PB&J?
For this recipe, you can use whatever jelly is your favorite. I have my favorite nut butter on hand for use with this air fryer pb&J recipe but you can opt to use whatever peanut butter and jelly option suits your fancy.
Grape jelly or a strawberry jelly work wonderfully with nut butter to create this magical pb&j treat for the whole family.
What is the most popular jelly?
I was very curious about what the most popular jelly choice was for Americans so I decided to look it up. According to a study that was completed by Statista the most popular jelly is by far grape with strawberry coming in second place and blackberry jelly joining the list at the third spot for most popular jelly in America.
Whether you opt to go with grape or strawberry jelly, I am confident that you’ll enjoy digging your teeth into these delicious air fryer peanut butter and jelly biscuits sandwiches.
The flavor is amazing.
The texture is delightful.
There’s nothing quite like a flavorful pb&j treat when you’re an adult, it takes you back to a magical place of childhood when you first bite into a PB&J sandwich made just for you.
How do you make peanut butter and jelly in the air fryer?
If you follow this blog, you know I’m always looking for shortcuts, and often that includes some premade ingredients. I’m using Grand biscuit dough here, but you could certainly make your biscuits from scratch. Will that affect time in the air fryer? Maybe – you’ll have to watch them.
Start by opening the biscuit can and spreading the biscuits into a rectangular shape. Just pull from each end and stretch until you get it to the shape you want.
Spread about a tablespoon each of peanut butter (or your favorite nut butter) and jelly. Spread them out making sure to leave enough room on the edge to close and seal the sandwich. Close the edges with a fork. If a little seeps out, that’s fine. Just make sure the edges are closed or you’ll have a messy air fryer.
Using your oil spritzer, spray the bottom of the air fryer. Then spray the top of each of the sandwiches. I like to flip mine halfway between air frying. Then I spritz after I flip.
What’s the best air fryer to buy?
My air fryer is the Power Air Fryer XL, 5.3 qt. I also have the Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven and use them both! I love the ease of the combined air fryer and toaster oven. Because I don’t own a toaster, this appliance is perfect for my smaller kitchen – helps save me counter space!
Oooey gooey peanut butter and jelly flavor in a flaky biscuit. It’s like an toasted Uncrustable, but you made it yourself! You’ll love these air fryer peanut butter and jelly grilled sammies!
