I have been doing lots of air fryer baking so I decided to adapt my favorite banana muffin recipe for the air fryer. The results did not disappoint. These Air Fryer Banana Muffins are moist and delicious and baked in a fraction of the normal time.

Let’s get started!


– flour – baking powder – baking soda – salt – cinnamon – brown sugar – egg – applesauce – vanilla – mashed bananas 

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mash the bananas using a fork or a potato masher. Set the mashed bananas aside.


Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a large bowl.


In a large bowl, combine the egg, applesauce, vanilla, and mashed bananas.


Pour dry ingredients into the large bowl of wet ingredients and stir just until all the flour has been incorporated. Take care not to over stir.


05  There is no need to spray silicone muffin cups, so you can just fill them up ¾ of the way with the batter.

Bake the muffins for 13-15 minutes in the air fryer at 350 degrees.

Remove the muffins from the baking cups and place to cool on a cooling rack.
