How to Serve Air Fryer Bananas:

There are many ways to serve these air fryer bananas. We love air fryer recipes, and making desserts is one of my favorites.

  • Vanilla Ice Cream – Place the bananas in a small bowl and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It is the perfect combination.
  • Cereal Topping – Make a bowl of your favorite cereal and top these caramelized bananas on top. They are the perfect addition to a bowl of shredded wheats.
  • Banana Split – If you love banana splits as much as my family, switch up your bananas and cook them in the air fryer. I love this recipe and the combination of the flavors.
  • Breakfast – Top these slice bananas on your toast, pancakes or waffles. Drizzle with some maple syrup for a delicious breakfast.
  • Oatmeal – I love a bowl of warm oatmeal, but adding these air fryer bananas takes it to the next level. Add a few chocolate chips for the ultimate bowl of oatmeal.
  • Other Toppings – Other toppings for your bananas, top with chopped nuts, caramel sauce and whipped cream.

How to Store:

These are best served fresh as the leftover bananas will get mushy when they are stored.

Variations:

  • Change the Seasoning – You can usually different seasoning on these bananas. Sprinkle pumpkin pie spice for a fall flavored dessert.
  • Sugars – Feel free to use different types of sugars. You can use a sugar substitute that fits in your diet.
  • Coconut Oil – Instead of basting the bananas with melted butter, use coconut oil. It is a great and healthier alternative. Add some extract to the melted coconut such as vanilla, almond or orange flavor.
  • Sprinkle with Sea Salt – We love the sea and salty combination on the bananas.
  • Add more flavor – For more flavor, brush the bananas with some rum. You can brush with spice rum such as brandy or whisky.

Air Fryer Bananas Tips:

  • Bananas – Make sure to use ripe bananas when making this recipe. Just make sure they are not overly ripe and mushy.
  • Air Fryer – You may need to preheat the air fryer before making this recipe. Cooking time may vary based on your air fryer.
  • Line the Air Fryer – We recommend lining the air fryer basket with parchment paper. This helps with easy cleanup and prevents the bananas from sticking to the basket.
  • Cooking the Bananas – Cook the bananas in a single layer on the basket so that the bananas cook evenly.

Yes, you can bake bananas in the oven. Place the bananas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in a preheated oven at 350 degrees and bake for about 10 minutes.

My kids love them and the flavor is amazing. They next time you need a quick dessert, make these air fryer bananas.
