Here Are Some Common Questions Asked About This Recipe & Making Muffins in the Air Fryer–
Can I Use Other Types of Nuts?
Yes, of course, this recipe would work well with walnuts or macadamia nuts.
Can You Use Paper Muffin Cups in the Air Fryer?
This is a yes and no answer. You can use anything that is oven safe in the air fryer. You can use glass, ceramic, metal, or even silicone molds. Air Fryer manuals have stated that you can use silicone or paper cupcake cups. The problem is that some of my readers have noted that sometimes the muffins fly into the air fryer heating element and cause a fire. So, while you can use it, it’s best to invest in a metal muffin tin.
Can You Use Silicone Muffin Cups In An Air Fryer?
Yes, these are perfect for the air fryer, since all of the air fryers are different sizes. These will work in any air fryer. Either basket or oven style.
Can Ramekins Go Into The Air Fryer?
I highly recommend these. Yes, they are another perfect option for making muffins in the air fryer. Remember the rule is if they are oven-safe they are probably air fryer safe.
Can You Bake Using An Air Fryer?
Yes, baking is awesome in the air fryer. Baking is much quicker in the air fryer since you do not have to wait for the air fryer to preheat, before using it.
