Recipe Tips

  • I recommend using overripe bananas for the best results as they will mash easily. They also tend to have a sweeter and more potent taste.
  • The honey is optional and can either be replaced or left out altogether. Maple syrup or regular sugar are great alternatives to honey.
  • If you want to make this recipe gluten-free, simply use self-rising gluten-free flour instead of regular self-rising flour.
  • Do not be afraid to add more flavors to the banana bread batter. For example, chocolate chips or raisins are great additions.
  • You will need a large air fryer to fit a loaf tin. Alternatively, you can use mini loaf pans, but you will need to reduce the cooking time. You could also try to use a round cake pan.
  • If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can make some using regular plain flour and baking powder. Adding roughly two teaspoons of baking powder to the flour should get you the best result.
