How To Make Homemade Banana Muffins
Combine the flour and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
Add the egg and vanilla extract into the butter and sugar mixture. Mix well.
Pour the butter and sugar mixture into the dry ingredients and use a spatula to mix well.
Gently fold in the mashed banana to the batter until just combined.
Using a large scoop to fill the silicone cups about ¾ of the way. If using a small muffin tin, fill paper liners ¾ of the way.
Gently place into the basket. Air fry at 350 for 6-8 minutes.
Carefully remove the banana muffins from the air fryer basket and allow them to cool slightly on a wire rack before serving.
What type of air fryer do you need for this recipe?
The Air Fryer I used for this recipe was the Cosori 5.8 quart air fryer. 8 minutes was the perfect amount of cook time in this air fryer for these banana muffins. If you have a different brand of air fryer, you may need to add or take away time to ensure this cooks correctly. Remember, all air fryers cook a little differently.
Can you add other ingredients to these banana muffins?
You can add all your favorite fruit! A family favorite in our house is to add some peanut butter chips or chocolate chips to the batter for an extra boost of flavor! We also like to drizzle some maple syrup on the top of the muffins.
