Air Fryer Brownies {For Two}

It all starts with my homemade brownie mix for this air fryer brownie recipe. I halved the ingredients to fill a 6-inch round cake pan and cooked it in the air fryer! Yes, an air fryer is more than just for french fries, chicken nuggets, and shrimp (although I have been using mine a lot for those foods as well). So, give this easy dessert a try!

How to Make Air Fryer Brownies

It really is so simple to make this dessert, you will make this more than once! To make the brownies, first, preheat the air fryer and spray a 6-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Next, in a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, flour, and salt.

Then, pour in the melted butter, egg, and vanilla. Whisk all the ingredients together until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and cook the brownies in the air fryer for 15 minutes. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out with a few dry crumbs, but no wet batter.

Remove the brownies from the air fryer, cut into two halves, and serve with your favorite topping (s). I love it with chocolate ice cream; it would also be delicious with homemade whipped topping. You could also add a few chocolate chips to the mix for even more chocolate!

What is the Best Air Fryer?

I have tested 3 brands in my home and I recommend the Ninja Air Fryer. (affiliate link) You can go up a size if needed, but it is superior in achieving consistent results and also ease of use. I’ve been very happy with this Air Fryer!
