Sweet & Crispy Air Fryer Bacon

Air fryer bacon is the best way to make mouthwateringly crispy bacon! Sprinkle a little coconut sugar on top for a slightly sweet twist.

Prep: 2 minCook: 10 minTotal: 12 min
Servings: 8 slices 1x


  • 8 slices bacon
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375F.
  2. Lay the bacon slices out in an even layer across your air fryer trays or basket. If the bacon strips don’t fit, feel free to cut the bacon in half to arrange them in a single layer. Depending how much bacon you’re cooking, you may need to work in batches.
  3. Sprinkle the tops of the bacon with coconut sugar and pepper.
  4. Air fry the bacon for 8 – 10 minutes, 8 minutes for softer slices and 10 minutes for crispy bacon. Switch the air fryer trays or flip the bacon halfway through cooking to make sure they cook evenly.
  5. Once the air frying time is up, use tongs to transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels and enjoy!
