Recipe Tips

  • To get both sides of the banana caramelized, you will need to flip them. However, the banana will likely be soft and difficult to flip, so it may be safer to leave it alone.
  • You can cut the bananas lengthways instead of into coins. You shouldn't need to adjust the cooking time either way.
  • Keep an eye on the bananas in the air fryer as sugar can quickly burn.
  • I highly recommend using parchment paper to reduce the likeliness of a messy cleanup.
