Here’s How to Make Air Fryer Grapes:
Making air fryer grapes is so easy. You’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1-2 cups of seedless grapes
- olive oil spray
- Salt and pepper
Now, to make them preheat your air fryer as directed. Next, rinse the grapes and pat them dry with a paper towel.
Then, in a bowl, spray the grapes with the olive oil spray and sprinkle on salt and pepper. Toss them gently to coat them evenly.
After they are coated, place the grapes in the air fryer basket in a single layer. Finally, air fry the grapes for 10 minutes, shaking the basket once or twice to ensure even cooking. Remove the grapes from the air fryer and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.

Why Make Air Fryer Grapes?
For starters, they’re a fun and unique way to enjoy this nutritious fruit. The heat from the air fryer gives them a slightly sweet and crunchy texture. They make a great snack or appetizer, and they’re also a tasty addition to salads or charcuterie boards. I served mine on crackers with some low fat cream cheese and a sprinkle of fresh rosemary. SO GOOD.
What Do Air Fryer Grapes Taste Like?
They have a sweet flavor and a juicy interior. If you have ever had roasted grapes, this is similar, they are just ready faster than waiting on the oven.
How to Store Air Fried Grapes?
If you have any leftover air fried grapes, you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2-3 days.

Unfortunately, air fried grapes do not freeze well. The texture and flavor will change.
How to Serve Air Fryer Grapes
Air fried grapes are great on their own as a snack, but you can also serve them in a variety of ways.
