  1. Line the bottom tray of your air fryer with tinfoil. Spread the avocado oil out on the tinfoil.

  2. Preheat the air fryer by turning it onto 400F for 5 minutes. While the air fryer is still warm, pour the popcorn kernels onto the tinfoil lined tray. Cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Keep the door closed for another 1-2 minutes, to allow more kernels to pop.
