Air Fryer Banana Bread-This morning, I made banana bread for the family while doing school online. It was pretty awesome; it had a great light flavor. Today, I show you how to make Homemade Air Fryer Banana Bread.

If you have not made banana bread yet, it’s effortless and one of the best recipes to use up ripe bananas. You know, the ones that seem to go bad overnight.

This will teach you how to make banana bread in an air fryer.  If you are looking for anymore Air Fryer Quick Breads, here are some of my favorite recipes, AIR FRYER APPLE CRANBERRY BREAD, AIR FRYER BANANA BREAD MUG CAKE, AIR FRYER CRANBERRY WALNUT BREAD and AIR FRYER, PUMPKIN NUT BREAD.

The Best Air Fryer Quick Banana Bread Recipe-

The most important ingredient is overripe bananas. I always buy a few extras, so I have overripe bananas to bake with. The perfect banana is dark yellow with a few spots of brown.  The riper the banana, the sweeter your banana bread will be.


If you love banana bread, you will absolutely love this recipe. It’s easy, and best yet, you are using up ripe bananas that you will be throwing up if you do not use them for a banana bread recipe. Talk about a budget-friendly breakfast.

How To Bake Banana Bread In the Air Fryer-

This recipe will make one large loaf of banana bread or three mini loaves. I strongly recommend baking in the air fryer. You invest in mini loaf pans, as baked goods cook better in mini mode.

This recipe will work in the Ninja Foodi Grill, Power XL, or the Instant Pot Vortex Plus. Either an oven or a basket-style air fryer.

Here are some reasons why you will absolutely love this banana bread:

  • Easy
  • Delicious
  • Used ingredients on hand.
  • Perfect for the air fryer

Ingredients Needed-

With a few simple ingredients, you can make great restaurant-quality banana bread.

Flour-Today, I opted for all-purpose flour, but feel free to switch it out for whole-wheat or gluten-free flour, note that the texture might change.

Milk: Any milk works. I used whole milk, as I think the flavor is richer.

Baking Powder:  This helps the banana bread rise. It also greats a great fluffy banana bread.

Baking Soda:  Experts say that you need baking soda in baked goods because it is a leaving agent, meaning it makes the bread rise since it gives out carbon dioxide.

Ground Cinnamon: I really like the flavor of roasted bananas and ground cinnamon.

How To Make Banana Bread

How Do You Cook Banana Bread In Air Fryer?

  • Mix all of the ingredients in a mixer or a large mixing bowl.
  • Then spray your pan with non-stick cooking spray (or use olive oil)
  • Cook in the Air Fryer at 330 degrees F (air fryer setting) for 20-30 minutes. Check your air fryer. Does the toothpick come out clean? If so, it’s done; otherwise, add a few more minutes to your time.
  • Let cool, then slice and serve.

Can You Freeze Air Fryer Banana Bread-

Yes, this is a great recipe if you are looking to make breakfast ahead of time. , let the banana bread completely cool, and then wrap it up in saran wrap. Freeze for about a month.

To use from the freezer, take it out of the freezer and place it in the refrigerator or on the counter until room temperature.

Then for a special treat, you can even place a slice in the air fryer to warm it up!

Can I Add Other Ingredients To this recipe?

Yes, you can easily toss in some chocolate chips, pecans, pistachios, or even some macadamia nuts. They make for easy and quick air fryer breakfast recipes.

What Air Fryer Do You Use?

I have used about 25 to 30 air fryers in my cooking. I am always making this banana bared, which is a classic.

In my experience, I have made this using an Air Fryer Crisp Lid, A Ninja Foodi and Power XL, and even my little GoWise. The recipe is adaptable and works in all.
