Of course, part of the virality of this recipe comes from the simplicity of using your air fryer to make Nutella toast pies. Here’s the recipe below.

How to Make Air Fryer Nutella Toast Pies


  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • Bread (preferably spongy white bread)
  • Nutella
  • Powdered sugar


Step 1: Prepare the egg wash and the bread

In a small bowl, whisk together the egg and the milk to create the egg wash. Cut the crusts off the bread, then press the middle down so it’s indented.

Step 2: Fill it and fold

Put a spoonful of Nutella in the indented middle of your bread. Brush the edges with egg wash so the bread sticks together, then fold it together. Seal the edges by gently pressing with a fork.

Step 3: Brush and fry

Once the pies are folded, brush the outsides with the rest of the egg wash. Put them in the air fryer, and fry for five minutes at 356 F, or until they’re crisp and golden.

Step 4: Drizzle and powder

Drizzle with melted Nutella and sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve.
