  • 3 medium potatoes (I am using russet)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder/ granulated garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oil of choice (I love using avocado oil because it has a high smoke point. Coconut also works well.)


  1. Wash your potatoes, and pat them dry. I do not peel mine (#lazy 😆), but feel free to do that.

  2. Slice your potatoes to the size fries you want, and try to be somewhat consistent with the size to allow for even cooking. (Note: larger fries may require slightly more cook time.)

  3. Toss your fries with the oil, garlic, salt and pepper. You can toss them in a bowl, or toss them in your air fryer basket if you are lazy like me! 😆👌🏻

  4. Cook them on 400 in the air fryer for about 20 minutes (more for larger, steak fries), and toss them around a couple times during the cooking to help evenly cook.

  5. Taste to see if you need more salt and pepper.

  6. If you want to make them look fancy, sprinkle some chopped fresh parsley on top. Honestly, I just did this for the pictures. We never add parsley in real life. 😉👍🏻
