It takes less than 10 ingredients to put together this fast and easy air fryer dessert. Plus, many of the components are pantry staples that are most likely already in your kitchen cabinets. Scoop up some fresh raspberries from your grocery store or local farmers market and get ready for a sweet yet tart slice of sunshine!
Get started by preheating your air fryer to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together six ounces (or about one cup) of raspberries with one teaspoon of corn starch and one teaspoon of white sugar. Pour the raspberry mixture into an air fryer cake pan and set it aside.
Next, get started on the crisp for the top of your dessert. In a food processor, combine a half-cup of rolled oats, a quarter-cup of walnuts, one teaspoon of cinnamon, one teaspoon of chia seeds, two tablespoons of light butter and one teaspoon of white sugar. Pulse until the mixture resembles a coarse crumb. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the berries before you place the crisp into your air fryer. Bake it in the air fryer for 15 minutes or until the topping is golden brown. Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.

Nothing says summer like the fresh flavor of raspberries! However, these sweet little berries aren’t just delicious, they are also packed with nutritional value. One cup of fresh, raw raspberries contains 64 calories and eight grams of fiber, says the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
According to Healthline, “Raspberries are believed to protect against arthritis by blocking COX-2, an enzyme responsible for causing inflammation and pain.” They are also rich in antioxidants, which have been shown to decrease the risk of cancer and prevent signs of aging.
