When I set a batch of handmade Air Fryer Banana Walnut Muffins before my family, they exclaimed, “Yummy.” The entire kitchen reeked of deliciousness!
You are certainly missing out if you haven’t tried air fryer muffins. Therefore, if any ripe bananas are present in your kitchen and you don’t know what to do with them, I recommend trying this recipe.
These Air Fryer Banana Walnut Muffins are soft, juicy, and delicious! You won’t regret making them.
Banana Walnut Muffins: What Are They Made of?
They’re precisely how they sound: they’re made with ripe bananas and walnuts.
Bananas: Black bananas are the ideal bananas for banana bread or muffins. Your banana bread (or banana walnut bread in this case) will be as sweeter as much more black dots your ripe banana has.
I used chopped walnuts today because I prefer them larger in baked items, so your muffin has a lovely crunch.
- Be careful not to over mix the batter. This will make the muffins hard as the more gluten is released when you stir, the harder muffins.
- Air-fry the muffins in an instant. The batter is ready.
- Allow them to cool slightly after air-frying them; the muffins will keep baking even after being removed from the air fryer.
- Swap out the nuts if you don’t like walnuts; alternatives include pecans, hazelnuts, and macadamia nuts.
Is It Possible to Store These Muffins?
Allow them to chill to room temperature before storing them in an airtight container. They should keep for 1 to 2 days at room temperature.
If you want to keep them for a more extended period, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator; they should survive for approximately a week.
What to Serve Them With?
For a special treat, top them with chocolate chips. Serve with honey, butter, or your favorite jam as a topping.
