Air fryer brownies are a delightful twist on the classic dessert, offering a quicker and potentially healthier alternative to traditional oven-baked brownies. Here’s a simple recipe to make delicious air fryer brownies:



  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • Optional: 1/2 cup chocolate chips, nuts, or other mix-ins



  1. Preheat your air fryer to 320°F (160°C) for 5 minutes.
  2. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter in the microwave in short bursts, stirring in between until completely melted. Allow the melted butter to cool slightly.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Gradually pour the melted butter into the egg mixture while whisking continuously.
  5. Sift in the cocoa powder, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder into the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.
  6. If desired, fold in chocolate chips, nuts, or other mix-ins into the batter.
  7. Lightly grease a small baking pan or line it with parchment paper. Pour the brownie batter into the prepared pan and spread it evenly.
  8. Place the pan into the preheated air fryer basket.
  9. Air fry the brownies at 320°F (160°C) for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with moist crumbs attached. The exact cooking time may vary depending on your air fryer model, so keep an eye on the brownies towards the end of the cooking time.
  10. Once cooked, carefully remove the pan from the air fryer and let the brownies cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  11. Once cooled, cut the brownies into squares and serve. Enjoy your delicious air fryer brownies!
