How to Make Air Fried Bananas
Begin by peeling and cutting ripe bananas lengthwise with a sharp knife. Using a paper towel to wipe off any excess skin from banana. Place banana slices on a cutting board in a single layer.
Place butter in a medium saucepan over low heat or melt butter in microwave in a microwave safe dish.
In a small mixing bowl, combine cinnamon and brown sugar. Take each individual banana slice and coat with butter. Then spoon sugar and cinnamon mixture over the top of each banana slice.
Next lightly mist basket with cooking spray or line air fryer basket with parchment paper. In a single layer place banana slice onto tray.
Cooking time for bananas is 380 degrees F for 6-8 minutes. Cook until they are golden brown and serve warm.
I make this easy snack recipe in my Cosori 5.8 qt. air fryer. Depending on your air fryer, size and wattages, cook time may need to be adjusted 1-2 minutes.
Enhance fresh banana taste by using vanilla extract, or a sprinkle of pumpkin spice or maple syrup. These flavors will create richness to the dish. Make this recipe with your favorite spices such as McCormick's pumpkin pie spice or nutmeg, and make it your own.
For an extra depth of flavor, brush bananas lightly with one of your favorite liqueurs. Cointreau, brandy or a smoky whiskey make these delicious bananas decadent.
This delicious treat goes well with a number of foods. Served simply with vanilla ice cream, adding bananas into your granola, smoothie or yogurt makes healthy recipes which enhances the flavors in your breakfast or midday snack. Simply adding them to a bowl of fresh fruits is quite yummy. Bananas can also be a quick snack warm or cold.
Type of ripeness can depend on your individual tastes and what you have in your kitchen. They can be ripe or firm bananas. Firmer bananas may need an additional time in the air fryer. If you don't have ripe bananas, you can squeeze fresh lemon juice or lime juice onto the banana slices to soften them. This also slows down the browning process.
This tasty treat is best enjoyed when freshly cooked. If there are leftovers, they can be stored in refrigerator for up to 5 days. Once bananas have cooled you can store them in your freezer in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to a month.
