Easy Buffalo Wings Keto Air Fryer Recipe

Are you looking for a crowd-pleasing Keto appetizer? These Keto Buffalo Wings are easy to prepare, sweet, spicy, and buttery goodness! Buffalo Wing appetizers are always a party favorite, but sauces that taste this good are usually loaded with sugar, but these low carb buffalo wings got the sweetness with a little spice, yet still Keto friendly!

As far as cooking the Keto Buffalo Wings you have two east options, baking or pressure cooking them (in an instant pot or Ninja Foodi). Either way, I recommend tossing them in the air fryer to crisp them up too.

First, combine the Franks Original Hot Sauce, brown sugar substitute ( I used Lakanto Golden Monkfruit), garlic powder, smoked paprika and Butter in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil and then set aside.

I prefer Lakanto Golden Monk fruit sweetener, because it is a natural sweetener coming from a monk fruit, but doesn’t have any effect on blood sugar or insulin. None of Lakanto’s sweeteners have a yucky aftertaste like Swerve or other sugar alcohols. ( you can use code MERMAID for a discount on all Lakanto products)

Season the wings with salt and pepper Next,

  • If you prefer to bake your wings, place the wings on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes at 450 F

  • In the pressure cooker, instant pot, Ninja Foodi, add 1 cup of water to the pressure cooker, using the crisper basket add wings and pressure cook on high for 5 minutes.

Once your wings are done baking or pressure cooking toss them in the hot sauce and butter mixture.

Now you’ll want to air fry the Wongs to get them nice and crispy. If you are using a Ninja Foodi be sure to dump out the water.

Air fry the wings at 390 F for 8 minutes, remove and toss in the sauce again. Air fry for an additional 8 minutes. If there is any sauce left, you can toss in the sauce again before eating.

By the way girlfriend, I recently got this Ninja Foodi and its amazing! First off, I was able to give away my veggie steamer, rice cooker, and air fryer, which made me a happy girl because I was starting to feel like so much of my pantry space was being taken up by all the different kitchen gadgets!

The Ninja Foodi literally does it all… dehydrator, slow cooker, pressure cooker, you can sautee in it and of course steam and air fry. Even if it isn’t something you want to spend the money on right now, put it on your birthday and Christmas gift wish list! I'm convinced every busy woman needs this thing in their life ASAP!
