Pro Tips

  • Slice Uniformly: Ensure uniform thickness when slicing carrots to promote even cooking and consistent texture throughout each chip.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer before adding the carrot slices to help jump-start the cooking process and achieve crispier results.
  • Season Before Air Frying: Toss the carrot slices in olive oil and seasonings of your choice before air frying to enhance their flavor and ensure they develop a crispy exterior.
  • Use a Single Layer: Arrange the carrot slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket, making sure not to overcrowd them to allow for proper air circulation.
  • Monitor Cooking Time: Monitor the carrot chips towards the end of the cooking process to prevent them from burning. Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the slices.

Seasoning Suggestions

Like potato chips, carrot chips can be seasoned in any number of ways. I kept it simple with sea salt today, but you can season it with any of the following flavors.

How To Cut Carrot Chips

There are two ways to get your carrot chips into chip form. The first is to purchase them in the produce department, which already has them sliced up. Look for a bag labeled carrot chips. The bags are usually near the bagged cut, diced broccoli and cauliflower in the produce department.

If you can not find them, you can always use a mandoline to cut the carrots into the desired shape. Peel the carrots and slice them into carrot chips.


Can I use any type of carrot to make chips in the air fryer? Yes, you can, but thinner carrots, like baby carrots or smaller varieties, may cook more quickly and evenly.

How thin should I slice the carrots for optimal results? Aim for uniformly thin slices, about 1/8 to 1/4 inch thick, to ensure even cooking and crispiness.

Do I need to peel the carrots before making chips in the air fryer? It’s optional. While you can leave the skin on for added nutrients and texture, peeling the carrots before slicing can produce a more uniform appearance for the chips.

How do I prevent the carrot chips from sticking to the air fryer basket? Lightly coat the carrot slices with oil before air frying or use a non-stick cooking spray to prevent sticking.

Can I season the carrot chips with different flavors? Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with various seasonings, such as garlic powder, paprika, cumin, or rosemary, to customize the flavor of your carrot chips.

How long do carrot chips stay crispy after air frying? Carrot chips are best enjoyed fresh, but you can store any leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1-2 days. If they lose their crispiness, you can reheat them in the air fryer for a few minutes to revive their texture.
