One of my favorite things about the air fryer is how it can make fried foods just a little bit healthier. But, truth be told, I also love how it can make some indulgent treats even MORE delicious.

These air fryer Uncrustables are a perfect example. The bread on the outside gets toasty and golden while the inside turns into warm, gooey, melty decadence. It’s like a peanut butter and jelly lava cake!

The bread gets golden and toasty, especially if you brush the tops with a little butter. Meanwhile, the center turns into melted peanut butter and jelly deliciousness. It’s truly a perfect combination.

It reminds me a little bit of stuffed French toast, actually. Except air fryer Uncrustables can be ready in a fraction of the time and without any of the prep work!

The flavor is perfect for any time of day. They’re sweet enough to be a dessert, but not so sweet that you can’t enjoy them for breakfast or a tasty snack. And, as I mentioned, my family asks for them at pretty much all hours.

STEP ONE: Brush the tops of your frozen Uncrustables with melted butter, if desired. It’s not required, but I do love the extra golden topping and extra flavor it gives.

Tips for Making the Best Uncrustables in the Air Fryer

  • Brush the tops with butter. This will keep the bread soft as it toasts, but the tops will get a nice, golden crunch. The bottoms will remain soft.
  • Leave a little space between each Uncrustable in the air fryer basket so the hot air can properly circulate.
  • Right when the Uncrustables come out of the air fryer, sprinkle them with a little cinnamon or powdered sugar for an added boost of flavor.

Do You Need To Thaw Uncrustables Before Air Frying?

Nope! This recipe is for frozen Smuckers Uncrustables, so they can go straight from the freezer to the air fryer. No need to wait for them to thaw.

I almost always have a box of Uncrustables sitting in my freezer, which makes this recipe so convenient. Whether the kids need a snack fast or I want a little treat for myself, I always know these can be ready in a matter of minutes.

  • 2 to 4 Frozen Uncrustables
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted (optional)


  • Brush the tops of your frozen Uncrustables with your melted butter (optional), to make the Uncrustables a little less dry.
  • Place them in your air fryer basket leaving space around them for the air to circulate. Turn your fryer to 350 and cook for 6-8 minutes, flipping them halfway through cooking.
  • Remove the Uncrustables from the air fryer and enjoy!



Brushing just the tops with butter gives it the golden crunchy side. The bottom remains soft but it is a perfect combination with the gooey center.

  1. Hi
    Just got a air fryer and having a little problem with getting recipes that I can use.
    I have a Chefman RJ38-12-AS-CA. most recipes call for using a basket and shaking basket etc. but I dont believe that is possible with mine first because the baset ias designed to stir.
    any suggestions?

    • Hi George, I just took a look at that air fryer and that’s definitely a unique feature! I thought those went away when air fryers took over for the acti-fry models they used to have. It looks like yours should have racks included as well. I would cook the recipes like a normal air fryer oven and use the racks for most recipes unless it’s a food you know won’t fall apart by being moved around.
