Equipment

  • Air fryer

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe bananas (yellow with no spots)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil (or avocado or vegetable oil)
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the air fryer at 370 degrees for five minutes.
  • Peel the bananas and cut them in half lengthwise. Drizzle on the oil, then sprinkle on the coconut sugar. You can also add a pinch of cinnamon.
    2 ripe bananas, 1 tablespoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • Once the air fryer has pre-heated, add the bananas to the air fryer, making sure not to overcrowd them. Do them in batches if you need to. Air fry for six minutes then flip the bananas and air fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  • Take out of the air fryer and eat as is, or top with your favorite toppings. Sometimes I like to add melted chocolate, peanut butter and walnuts. Or dairy free yogurt and granola.

Notes

Make sure to use yellow bananas that aren't too underripe or too overripe. If they're overripe and have spots, it will turn out too soggy.
Sometimes I love adding a pinch of cinnamon.
Pre-heat the air fryer for five minutes to get the bananas nice and caramelized.
Some people use parchment paper in the air fryer to minimize mess, but I find the bananas don't come out as good because it blocks the air flow from going completely around the bananas.
You can also put these bananas on top of a sundae, pancakes, waffles or toast.
