This banana bread recipe is totally delicious, and very quick and easy to make. It only needs two bananas, so perfect for using up a couple leftover in the fruit bowl.

This is the air fryer version of my 5-ingredient vegan banana bread, with the ingredients reduced to fit a 7-inch loaf pan, which is the size I use in my air fryer.

Baking in an air fryer is great when you are just making a small batch of something. You can convert most baking recipes to bake in an air fryer, check out my air fryer calculator if you have a recipe you want to convert, or check out this ultimate guide to baking in an air fryer for more details.

Ingredients

  1. Bananas: You will need 2 medium-sized bananas. They are best when they’re very ripe as this makes them easier to mash smooth and sweetens the recipe so you need less sugar.
  2. Sugar: I usually use soft brown sugar, but you can also use white granulated sugar. You need 1/4 cup.
  3. Oil: light olive oil is great, but you can substitute any neutral flavored cooking oil.
  4. Flour: use all purpose flour.
  5. Baking soda: be sure to use baking soda, not baking powder.

Directions

  • Prep: Line a 7 inch loaf pan with baking paper.
  • Make batter: In a large mixing bowl, mash bananas using a fork (or a potato ricer). Add the flour, sugar, oil and baking soda. Mix until well combined. You want the mixture to be quite smooth, with no lumps of flour remaining.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 320°F/ 160°C.
  • Bake: Pour or spoon the mixture into the baking dish. Air fry banana bread 30 minutes, or until a cake tester (or skewer) inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Cool: Allow the loaf to cool in the tin for 5 minutes and then turn out onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
