Ingredients And Substitutions

These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Crispy Maple Butter Brussels Sprouts. Scroll down to the recipe card for a full list of ingredients and instructions.

I prefer to use pre-washed Brussels sprouts to save on time and to ensure they are really clean.

Avocado is a great oil for using in the air fryer, especially for this recipe since we fry these at 450F. However you can also use coconut oil or a high quality extra virgin olive oil.

I found the Maple butter on amazon. It’s essentially maple syrup that processed into a butter. It’s delicious and I love using it in my recipes during this time of year.

Salt and pepper is all you need for the seasonings.

Use red grapes that are fresh, crisp and juicy for best results.

How To Make

ONE: Cut Brussels sprouts in half for smaller ones or in quarters for larger ones and place them in a bowl. Drizzle them with avocado oil, maple butter and season with salt and pepper. Toss well and air fry at 450F for 7 minutes.

TWO: In the meantime, wash and cut grapes in half. When the sprouts reach the 7 minute mark, add in the grapes and fry again for another 8 minutes.

THREE: When done, remove from the air fryer basket, drizzle with a touch more of maple butter and enjoy warm.

Tips And Tricks

Use pre-washed Brussels sprouts to save on time.

Do not over crowd the air fryer basket. You may need to do two rounds if you’re doing a big batch. You want there to be room between each sprout so that the air flow can move around, giving it that crispy exterior.

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can also roasted these in the oven for about 20-30 minutes at 3750F. Just be sure to flip them halfway through.

If you can’t use the maple butter, you can instead use maple syrup. However the flavor won’t be as strong so I recommend adding on a bit more than what is called for.

Taste as you go and add more ingredients if needed.

How To Serve And Store

Serve these Crispy Maple Butter Brussels Sprouts warm and with a touch more of maple butter after they are done air frying.

These Brussels sprouts taste best fresh. However, you can store leftovers in an air tight container and enjoy up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the air fryer again to achieve a crisper texture.

Taste And Texture

These Crispy Maple Butter Brussels Sprouts are sweet from the maple butter and grapes, but have a savory taste from the salt. The sprouts ends get burnt in the air fryer that tastes really good with the maple butter. It’s a great balance of sweet and savory.

The texture is crispy and crunchy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use the oven if I don’t have an air fryer?

Yes, totally! Just roast them at 375F for 20-30 minutes

Do I have to do two batches?

It depends on which air fryer you have. For this recipe and my air fryer I have to do two batches. You don’t want to over crowd your air fryer, otherwise your sprouts won’t get crispy.

What if I don’t have maple butter?

You can instead use maple syrup but you might need to add on a little more to get all the flavors! Just taste as you go!
