These air fryer croutons are so easy to make in the air fryer! Just use whatever white bread you have on hand. Cube it up, toss with a little olive oil, season, and air fry. Couldn't be easier. Or tastier! Since you choose the bread you use, it's not a challenge to make them vegan. These garlicky easy croutons are perfect to toss in soups, salads, or just for snacking.

  • air fryer


  • 5 slices white bread
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • teaspoons garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Italian seasoning


  • Cut the slices of bread into 1-inch cubes.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 375° while you are seasoning the bread cubes.
  • Place the cut pieces of bread into a mixing bowl. Sprinkle in the olive oil, tossing to coat well. Add the seasonings and continue to coat.
  • Place the cubed bread into the air fryer basket. If it is too overcrowded then it's best to work in batches. They won't be in a single layer BUT should not be so overcrowded that they won't cook evenly. It depends on the capacity of your air fryer basket.
  • Cook for 375° for about 10 minutes. Shake when halfway through cooking time. The croutons should be crispy and golden.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container or serve immediately.
