Want to make homemade pop tarts in the air fryer? This easy recipe for air fryer Nutella pop tarts will become a family favorite and will become a go-to breakfast for you or your kids!
Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing my latest air fryer recipe. I’ll be honest, at this point, I think I will make just about anything in the air fryer (like these air fryer pasta chips) and I am yet to be disappointed! This recipe for homemade pop tarts in the air fryer is a fun way to make a store-bought favorite at home!
This recipe is about to make your air fryer your best friend! In fact, you won’t go back to boring store-bought Pop-Tarts. These are so rich and gooey and good!
My kids, like most kids, absolutely love pop tarts. I don’t mind the store-bought variety, but everything is always better homemade, right? I knew that we could come up with a really tasty version at home and I had a feeling that the air fryer would crisp up the pie crust into a super yummy pastry! You could certainly bake these, but you would get a different texture and it would take way longer.
While we traditionally think of pop tarts as breakfast food, you could certainly consider these as a dessert or a snack. Nutella is eaten at any time of the day in most countries.
How to Make Air Fryer Nutella Pop Tarts
Homemade Pop-tarts are way easier than you think! By using store-bought pie crust, you save a lot of time and make this recipe super simple! I know that homemade pie crust is the best, but I am honestly a sucker for pre-made pie crust!
I filled my pop tarts with Nutella because we had some in the pantry, but you could use peanut butter, jam, preserves, or really any thick filling.

Air Fryer Nutella Pop Tart Tips:
Cutting the Pie Crust
Use a pizza cutter to cut the rectangles. It gives you a much cleaner cut than using a knife!
Switch up the toppings
You don’t have to use chocolate sprinkles if you don’t love them! You can use rainbow sprinkles, a sprinkle of powdered sugar, or you could skip the topping completely. A little big of cinnamon and sugar would be great, too!
Making Pop-Tarts at home is way easier than you think! Start with premade pie crust and fill with your favorite spread, we picked Nutella, and then quickly air fryer! In 6 minutes’ time, you will have a hot, crispy pastry that blows the boxed version out of the water!
