  7. Once the meatloaf is done cooking, turn off the air fryer and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Then, slice the meatloaf and serve it hot.


  1. If you don’t have almond flour, you can use whatever type of flour you like.
  2. You can use grainy mustard or yellow mustard.

  4. You can make the loaf ahead of time and wrap it in plastic wrap so it’s ready to go straight into the air fryer come dinner time.
  5. Don’t overmix the meatloaf or it can become tough instead of tender.
  6. Make sure to rest the meatloaf before slicing. Otherwise it will fall apart on you as you attempt to slice it.
