  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 14 1x


Units Scale
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup all-purpose baking flour or gluten-free baking flour (I like Bob’s 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Flour)
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar or regular sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup melted butter, ghee, or coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup milk or unsweetened almond milk


  1. Spray a silicone mini muffin pan with nonstick cooking oil and set aside.
  2. Combine the frozen blueberries, flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Stir to combine.
  3. Next, combine the applesauce, egg, butter, vanilla extract, and milk in a small mixing bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Use a tablespoon to fill the muffin wells ¾ of the way full.
  6. Place the muffin pan on the tray of your air-fryer. Set the temperature to 360 degrees for 10 minutes.
  7. When the cooking time is up, remove the muffin tin and transfer the muffins to a cooling rack.
  8. Next, use your spoon to divide the rest of the batter into the muffin pan and repeat the baking process.
  9. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. You’ll need a muffin mold for this recipe that will fit inside of your air fryer basket. This silicone egg cup mold is perfect and should fit inside most air fryer models.
  2. You can cut my recipe in half if you want to make just one batch.
  3. Store any leftover muffins in a ziptop bag or a container with lid in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  4. Some air fryer models needs to be preheated. Please refer to the owner’s manual of your particular model to see if you need to preheat it before using.
