  • Pat dry wings with a paper towel to remove excess moisture. Add to a large bowl and add avocado oil, 1 tablespoon buffalo sauce, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne, and salt and pepper. Mix well to combine.
  • If desired, spray the bottom of you air fryer basket with oil (I used avocado oil spray). Place wings in your air fryer basket, evenly spreading out and leaving a little room in between them so the air can easily flow through. Close drawer, set air fryer on manual at 400°F for 22 minutes. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you will probably have to cook the wings in two batches to make sure they are not overcrowded.
  • When the wings are almost done, either make or heat up the buffalo sauce.
  • Once wings are done, add to a large bowl and pour buffalo sauce over wings. Carefully mix to coat the wings. Serve with ranch or blue cheese, carrots, celery, and more hot sauce and enjoy immediately*!


*eat immediately after tossing in buffalo sauce as they will lose some of their crispiness if they sit in the sauce too long.
Oven Baked Buffalo Wings
Preheat your oven to 415 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a cookie drying rack over it. This will help make sure they get even air flow and the bottoms will get nice and crispy. Spray the top of the rack with a little avocado oil to make sure they don't stick. Toss wings in spices and oil and baked for 35-40 minutes until desired crispiness. Finally, toss with the buffalo sauce when done.
