This morning, I made banana bread, for the family, while they were doing school online. It was pretty awesome, it had a great light flavor. Today, I show you how to make Air Fryer Quick Banana Bread.
If you have not made banana bread yet, it’s really easy and one of the best recipe to use up ripe bananas. You know the ones that seem to go bad overnight.
The Best Air Fryer Quick Banana Bread Recipe-
The most important ingredient is overripe bananas. I always buy a few extra 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.
How To Make Banana Bread In the Air Fryer-
This recipe will make one large loaf banana bread or three mini loaves. I strongly recommend for baking in the air fryer, you invest in mini loaf pans, as baked goods cook better in mini mode.
Flour-Today, I opted for all-purpose flour, but feel free to switch it out for whole-wheat or gluten-free flour, just note that the texture might change.
Milk: Any type of 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.
Can You Freeze Banana Bread-
Yes, this is a great recipe, if you are looking to make breakfast ahead of time. Simply, let the banana bread completely cool, and then wrap it up in saran wrap. Freeze for about a month.
To use from the freezer, simply take it out of the freezer and place it in the refrigerator or on the counter, until it is room temperature.
Then for a special treat, you can even place a slice in the air fryer to warm it up!
