Air-Fryer Banana Bread

Making banana bread in your air fryer might seem odd, but you'll quickly find out it creates a moist, dense texture that will go great with your morning coffee. Try toasting the walnuts before using them in the recipe to deepen their flavor. If the top of your bread seems darker than a normal loaf from your oven, it's totally normal since the heating element is directly above the bread.

Hands On Time:
15 mins
Total Time:
45 mins


  • ¾ cup white whole wheat flour

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 medium ripe bananas, mashed (about 3/4 cup, 12 ounces)

  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten

  • ½ cup granulated sugar

  • cup plain nonfat yogurt

  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoon toasted walnuts, coarsely chopped

  • Cooking spray


  1. Line the bottom of a 6-inch round cake pan with parchment paper; lightly coat pan with cooking spray. Whisk together flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl; set aside.

  2. In separate medium bowl, whisk together mashed bananas, eggs, sugar, yogurt, oil and vanilla. Gently stir wet ingredients into flour mixture until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and sprinkle with walnuts.

  3. Heat a 5.3-qt air fryer to 310°F and then place pan in air fryer and cook until browned and a wooden pick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes, turning pan halfway through cook time. Transfer bread to a wire rack to cool in pan for 15 minutes before turning out and slicing.
