I LOVE pineapple. I am the person at the Dole pineapple factory getting 2 Dole whips during one visit. Pineapple is the best fruit because it translates so well into sweet AND savory pineapple dishes! This brown sugar air fryer pineapple is no exception. You can eat this plain as a snack (my kids love it when we have this after school!), or you can add it into any dish or even top it on some ice cream! YUM.

Cooking this up in the air fryer creates the absolute best texture! The brown sugar turns into a delicious glaze that covers the pineapple so that you have some sweet flavor in every single bite. Plus, this snack is so simple and easy that it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish. I would cut up a few pineapples and double this recipe. It will fly off the table so fast that you will be so happy you did!

Air Fryer Cooking Tips

Just like any air fryer recipe, there are a few things that you need to keep in mind when you are cooking this brown sugar pineapple in an air fryer. Here are some easy tips!

  • Overcrowding: Don’t over crowd your air fryer. Circulating air is how the air fryer cooks, and if you don’t leave enough space between the food for the air to penetrate, it won’t cook the same and your pineapple won’t cook evenly! It’s better to do smaller batches one at a time than try and fit it all at once.
  • Should I reheat my Air Fryer? Yes! If your air fryer has a preheat button then use it! If not, set your air fryer to your cooking temp and turn it on for about 2-3 minutes. This will warm your air fryer right up and be ready for your fruit!

Once your pineapple has cooled down then you can put it in an airtight container and put it in your fridge. It will last for 2-3 days!
