When September comes, my house is all about pumpkin and apple dishes and baking. This quick bread is no different; made with a great bounty of fall spices and canned pumpkin, it’s a healthy option for breakfast and takes mere minutes with the air fryer.

If you have not baked in the air fryer, it’s easy and quick. With no need to preheat and a cooking time of about 30% less than traditional oven cooking, you can have this bread baked to perfection in minutes.


Pumpkin Nut Bread

Pumpkin nut bread is just a quick bread infused with canned pumpkin and scattered nuts into the batter.

The nuts can be walnuts, pecans, or another nut you choose. The nuts pair well with the pumpkin flavor, giving it a great texture and flavor.

Baked up in the air fryer, you get a moist, light, and tender Pumpkin Nut Bread with loads of flavor.

Some Pro Tips For Making Air Fryer Pumpkin Nut Bread

  • For best results, use mini loaf pans for the air fryer. Otherwise, the center of the bread might not cook fully.
  • Do not overmix. Otherwise, the batter will release too much gluten and end up with dense pumpkin nut bread.
  • Room-temperature ingredients are best; the overall texture will be better, and you will get fewer clumps.
  • Use canned pumpkin filling, not pumpkin pie filling.
  • Use fresh ground spices for the best aroma and taste.

How To Store Air Fryer Pumpkin Nut Bread

This bread will last for about a week in the refrigerator. For best results, it’s best to either be at room temperature or warm up before eating.

You can either microwave the bread or use the air fryer to heat the leftovers before serving.

How To Freeze Air Fryer Pumpkin Nut Bread

This is a great bread to freeze for later, and it makes a great make-ahead breakfast if you have a meal plan.

To Freeze: Let the bread cool to room temperature. Then, wrap it several times in saran wrap and then in one layer of foil. Place the bread into the freezer, where it will last for 2 to 3 months.

To Use From Frozen: Place the frozen brad into the refrigerator overnight or on the counter until it’s thawed.

How Do You Keep Pumpkin Bread Moist?

This is a great bread because it’s moist when you cook it. Please do not over-mix the batter, and keep it away from air, which will cause it to dry out. So remember to really wrap the leftovers up well.

Canned or Pumpkin Pie Filing For This Recipe?

For this recipe, you must not use canned pie filling, which has already been sweetened.

Either use pumpkin puree or canned pumpkin. Both are the same thing and will work in this recipe.

What Pans Should You Use For Making Quick Breads In The Air Fryer?

While you can use whatever pans you have on hand for this recipe, I have found that baking loaf breads in the air fryer do better when cooked in the mini loaf pans. As the center sometimes does not get fully cooked.
