MINI BANANA BREAD LOAVES [AIR FRYER] - Bearcookers

Mini Banana Bread Loaves are the ultimate small batch sweet treat.  These mini banana loaves are quick and easy to make in either the air fryer or the oven.  The small individual loaves are the perfect size to share between two for morning tea, and the other can be saved in the freezer for later.

Mini Banana Bread Loaves may very well be my new favourite banana treat.  I know, I know - I say that every time I make a new banana recipe.

But these mini banana loaves are seriously to die for.  They're moist and fluffy with just the right amount of sweetness.  This small batch recipe makes just two mini loaves, which is perfect for sharing with just a few people.

Remove and allow to cool.  Turn down your air fryer to 160C / 320F and let it run for a further 5 minutes empty to stay warm while you get the loaves ready.  Grease loaf pans.
