How To Cook Banana Muffins In The Air Fryer

Start by mixing the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Then add the mashed bananas and egg.
Step Two: Mix Wet Ingredients
Add the vegetable oil and vanilla extract, and mix the ingredients well. For the best results, use a hand mixer or electric mixer, and mix at medium-high speed until there is no trace of four in the batter. If you do not have a mixer, use a potato masher.
Step Three: Air Fry The Delicious Muffins
Spray or line your muffin pan with paper-lined muffin cups. Use a spoon, and add the muffin batter to the muffin tins about 2/3 of the way up. Add a slice of banana to the top of the muffins for an added touch. Set the muffin pan in the air fryer basket.
Set the temperature to 320 degrees F, the cooking time of 12 to 15 minutes, and the air fryer setting. Check the muffins for doneness by sticking a toothpick into the center, and when it comes out clean, it is completely cooked.
If they are not baked all the way through, add another 2-3 minutes at a lower temperature and cook until the muffins are fully cooked.
Step Four: Serving
Cool on a wire rack for a few minutes, then serve with maple syrup or unsalted butter.

- Mini Loaves: If you want to make mini loaves, you can use a mini loaf pan; the recipe will remain the same; it makes for a sweet treat for a great breakfast!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What Bananas Make The Best Muffins?
Believe it or fresh bananas do not work well in this recipe. The riper the banana, the better the muffin. As a banana gets riper, it becomes sweeter and has a better flavor. I always wait for my bananas to get a few black spots before I use them. Remember, brown bananas make a sweeter banana muffin.
Can I Make These in the Oven?
Of course, set the pan into a preheated up at 375 degrees F for 12-15 minutes. When you place a toothpick in the center of the muffins and it comes out clean, remove the muffins from the oven.
How Do You Store These Muffins?
Simple. Let them cool to room temperature on a cooling rack, then place them in an airtight container or wrap them tightly with saran or plastic wrap. You can leave it on the counter or in the refrigerator. They should last between 2 and 4 days.
Let cool to room temperature, and then wrap them in saran wrap and place them in a Ziploc or freezer bag; when ready to have them, let them thaw on the counter or in the refrigerator. They will stay well in the freeze for about 1 to 2 months.
What Type of Muffin Tins (Pans) Can I Use in My Air Fryer?
I have been baking muffins since I started using my air fryer in 2017. I have evolved or time. When I started using my air fryer, there were no pans I could find that would fit my air fryer. As times change and air fryers have become more popular, manufacturers have started designing and selling smaller air fryer pans.
I used to use paper cupcake liners. After a few of my readers have told me that the muffin liners caught fire. I stopped recommending them and stopped using them myself. I was lucky to find these two alternatives, which I highly recommend. You can also use paper muffin cases and silicone cups. Silicone muffin cups or a mini loaf pan.
