  3. Grease the air fryer basket with nonstick spray.
  4. Working in batches of 3–4 at a time, “fry” the doughnuts and doughnut holes for 5 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Make the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk until smooth.
  6. Make the cinnamon sugar: In a separate small bowl, whisk together the sugar and cinnamon until combined.
  7. Make the chocolate glaze: In another small bowl, combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave in 30-second intervals, stirring between, until smooth.
  8. Dip the doughnuts and doughnut holes in the glaze, cinnamon sugar, or chocolate glaze. Top with sprinkles, if desired.
