Preheat Air Fryer to 350˚F.

Using 2 wet spoons, scoop batter with one spoon and then using another spoon, shape hush puppy into oval or football shape.

In batches, place hush puppies in basket of Bella Air Fryer and spray with olive oil spray. Air fry, shaking basket halfway through cooking time, for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
