Today, I used three berries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and there was a berry in each bite. Whether you use fresh or frozen berries, this recipe is amazing!

Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Berry Cream Muffins

- Baking Soda
- Fresh or Frozen Berries (Strawberries, Raspberries, Blackberries or Blueberries)
- Sour Cream
- Canola Oil
- Pure Vanilla Extract
How To Make Air Fryer Berry Cream Muffins
Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well. Then fold in the berries, eggs, sour cream, oil, and vanilla extract, mix well until combined.
Spray your muffin tins or silicone liners with cooking spray. Fill your muffin cavities with batter about 2/3 way full. Set the pan or silicone liners into the Air Fryer Basket and set the temperature to 320 degrees F for 10 to 12 minutes
Baking With Frozen Berries
I have made this recipe with both fresh and frozen berries. They will work the same. Here are some pointers:
- Add the frozen berries directly to the batter, do not thaw them out. Otherwise, your batter will become too watery.
- Smaller berries work better, so you should purchase the diced strawberries for this recipe if you use strawberries rather than the whole strawberries.
- You can also use the frozen berry medley for this recipe.
How To Store Leftovers
If you have any leftovers, you can let them cool to room temperature and then place them into an airtight container, where they will last for about 2 to 3 days at room temperature. For any longer, I would refrigerate them.
How To Reheat Muffins
There is nothing better than a warmed muffin, so I usually heat my muffin before eating leftover muffins.
You can either reheat them in the microwave or the Air Fryer. Heat until warmed through. If you use the air fryer to reheat muffins, set them in the basket for 2 to 3 minutes at 300 degrees F, air fryer setting.
How To Freeze Muffins
This is a great make-ahead meal. You can easily freeze Air Fryer Berry Cream Muffins for great quick breakfast meals.
To Freeze: Let them cool to room temperature and then wrap them in saran wrap, and then a couple of times in foil. Place them into a freezer bag. Place the bag into the freezer for 1 to 2 months.
To Use From Frozen: Let them thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature until thawed.
Frozen muffins will last between 1 to 2 months.
What Pans To Use For Making Muffins in The Air Fryer
While you can use silicone liners, I have gotten the best batch from using a smaller muffin tin, which can be purchased on Amazon. (Affiliate links below)
