Welcome to Airfryer Honey Glazed Pineapple Fries recipe. Delicious fresh pineapple cooked to perfection in the Airfryer. Seasoned with cinnamon and honey for the ultimate sweet fruit moment.
One of my biggest ever foodie addictions in the Milner household is the Brazilian barbecue. If you have not experienced one then you MUST as it is a meat lovers dream. It is where they serve up lots of different cuts of meat in a garlic marinade at your table. They literally keep feeding you until you BEG them to stop.
It varies from restaurant to restaurant with what you actually get, but usually you can expect thick Brazilian sausages and several varieties of red meat. My favourite is always the sirloin that is so garlicky that I can’t stop at 3 slices.
But then the meal finishes on fresh pineapple. It is a case of you always make sure that you have enough room for the warm pineapple.
It will be warm rather than overcooked and will have a delicious cinnamon flavour. Dominic has never really been a fan of cinnamon, but with this it is a small portion rather than overpowering and tastes so, so good.
You can read all about our favourite Brazilian restaurant in Spain, that we visited last summer and see some more examples of the great food.
And we have been to a few Brazilian restaurants over the years and it was the inspiration behind making this honey glazed pineapple fries below:
I mean looking at that, isn’t it enough to turn you into a Paleo addict on the spot? I know it has for us.
Though beware you can’t just stop at one portion. They are so addictive and perfect for these summer months when you want a big family fruit moment.
Or you can swap the Airfryer for the outdoor barbecue if you prefer.
Best Ever Airfryer Fries Recipes
If you have read my blog for a while you will know that I absolutely love fries. My blog is famous for the Airfryer recipes and with Airfryers being originally made for fries, it is no wonder that I have a few.
I decided to put together some honey glazed pineapple fries, because I am often on Paleo and want something really sweet to eat that is Paleo approved without having to get out the coconut flour.
For many people coconut flour can be hard to use so if you can find a sweet alternative without using it, then it will make life so much easier. Plus I love coconut but I prefer it in a savoury dish (think Thai curries) rather than in Paleo cookies.
Plus these pineapple fries are so easy to make, you will wonder why you didn’t make them for the last few years.

Airfryer Honey Glazed Pineapple Fries
If your pineapple is still whole, peel and chip the pineapple into chunky chip shapes.
Place the grill pan into your Airfryer and line up the fries into your grill pan so that they are in a long neat row and there are no gaps.
Cook in the Airfryer at 200c/390f for 3 minutes.
Then using tongs turn them over and cook for another 3 minutes (at the same temperature) on the other side.
Remove the grill pan from the Airfryer and sprinkle the pineapple fries in cinnamon. Then glaze them with a pastry brush with the honey.
Serve them immediately while they are still warm.
You want a nice sweet fresh pineapple. The out of season bitter ones taste horrible when they are cooked. I would also aim for a pineapple that has not been sat in your fridge for a week, as the fresher the better.
Its an easy ratio to remember 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to 1 tablespoon of honey. So if you want to make a lot more pineapple then increase this ratio.
I also find that it needs to cook at 200c in order for the pineapple to be cooked hot enough to get the grill look.
Don’t overcrowd the pineapple as it will not cook very well and you will result in an airfryer of slush.
