  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (preferably panko for extra crunch)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional, for added flavor)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Preheat Your Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  • Prepare the Green Beans:
    • Wash and trim the ends of the green beans.
    • Pat them dry with a kitchen towel to remove excess moisture.
  • Season the Green Beans:
    • In a mixing bowl, toss the green beans with olive oil until they are evenly coated.
    • In a separate bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese (if using), garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  • Coat the Green Beans:
    • Take a handful of green beans at a time and coat them in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the beans.
  • Air Fry the Green Beans:
    • Place the coated green beans in the EaZy MealZ Non-Stick Air Fryer Cooper Crisper Basket  in a single layer. You may need to work in batches to avoid overcrowding.
    • Air fry the green beans at 375°F (190°C) for about 8-10 minutes, shaking the basket or tossing the green beans halfway through. Cook until they are crispy and golden brown.
  • Serve and Enjoy:
