Air Fryer Vegan Snacks for People on a Budget

Air Fryer Vegan Snacks for People on a Budget

Eating doesn’t need to be expensive, but in a lot of cases it can be. We’ve put together a few vegan-friendly snacks you can whip up in your air fryer that won’t break the bank. A lot of these recipes use spices you likely already have in your kitchen so we don’t include these in the cost of the overall recipe! See a spice you don’t have? Feel free to substitute for something you own that you find equally delicious!
