Simple Air Fried Lemon Pepper Carrots

Easy, nutritious, and delicious air fried lemon pepper carrots are a perfect pairing for any meal. These also make a great side dish or snack for any occasion.



1 lb carrots, peeled and sliced into 1/4 inch pieces

1 tbsp olive 

1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning  

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 small lemon


  1. In a medium to large bowl, toss carrots with olive oil, lemon pepper seasoning, and garlic powder so that everything is well coated.
  2. Place carrots in air fryer basket. I like to line mine with either tin foil or parchment paper to make clean up a bit easier.
  3. Set air fryer to 360 degrees for 12-15 minutes, tossing carrots about halfway through. Poke with fork to make sure that they are to your desired tenderness. I like my carrots soft but not mushy. If you like them a little more tender, air fry for 2-3 more minutes.
  4. Place in serving dish and enjoy!


Please note that every air fryer is different. Cooking times are for the air fryer I use which is the Power Air Fryer XL.
