17 Easy Weight Watchers Air Fryer Recipes

If you follow a Weight Watchers diet, there's a good chance that you already have an air fryer at home. This appliance has gained extreme popularity in recent years, and it's an excellent fit for those on a diet lifestyle journey. If you don't own one, you may be interested in what it's all about and how it can be beneficial in quickly and efficiently cooking your favorite Weight Watchers meals!

If you are unfamiliar with this gadget, an air fryer is a convection oven that sits atop your countertop and can cook food that looks and tastes as though it was deep-fried without ever having to submerge the food in cooking oil. This is done through the circulation of hot air from a fan at high speed. The fan produces browning and crispiness of the food that's being cooked.

Air fryers are becoming kitchen staples for many people who follow a Weight Watchers diet. This cooking method allows them to enjoy food that tastes fried without the added calorie content from frying in oil. Weight Watchers assigns point levels to food, and butter and oil have a higher point count than many other foods, so you can likely see why so many WW dieters swear by cooking this way!

With an air fryer, you can enjoy your favorite crispy and crunchy foods, along with using the appliance to efficiently cook other foods, even dessert!

These WW air fryer recipes are delicious, filling, and fit well within a Weight Watchers diet. Take a look at the list and we're sure that you'll find several new air fryer recipes to cook in your air fryer!
