Why You Need This Recipe

  • Use your air fryer to quickly and efficiently make a batch of warm and fluffy muffins.
  • This recipe can be made using all-purpose flour or gluten-free baking flour.
  • Applesauce helps displace some of the fat in this recipe, yet the muffins remain light and fluffy.

Key Ingredients

Measured ingredients for blueberry muffins in bowls on a white surface.

Gluten free flour is so easy to work with nowadays. Look for a “1 to 1” version. This means it has all the proper ingredients to substitute cup-for-cup for all-purpose flour. I wrote this recipe using gluten free flour but you can easily use regular all-purpose wheat flour.

Unsweetened applesauce adds sweetness (so we can use less sugar) and works as a fat to cut back on butter. It’s a versatile ingredient to keep the batter moist.

Use any sort of milk here. Dairy-free nut milk or cow’s milk, anything will work (I used unsweetened almond milk).

Blueberries are easy to keep in the freezer for muffins or smoothies.

Butter, ghee or vegan butter can be used as the fat source in this recipe.

Recipe Steps

As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Two

Combine the wet ingredients in a small bowl and pour them into the dry ingredients.

Step Three

Stir the batter and use a tablespoon to divide half the mixture into a lightly greased pan. Bake the muffins in the air fryer at 350F degrees for 10 minutes.

Step Four

Then, remove the baked muffins to a cooling rack and re-fill the muffin pan with the rest of the batter to bake the rest of them. Enjoy warm!
