How to Make Brownies from Mix in the Air Fryer

For the most delicious fudgy brownie in the air fryer with boxed brownie mix, you’ll only need a few ingredients and a pan that will fit.

I used a springform pan which allowed for easy removal in and out of the air fryer. It also made it simple to take the cookie brown out of the pan and onto a serving dish.

Because we’re not using the entire box of brownies for this air fryer dessert recipe, you can store the remaining dry mix in an air-tight container until ready to make another batch. Who knows, it may be right after you make the first one! They are so delicious and fudgy that it’s hard to resist having more.

Once finished, remove the basket and let the brownie cool and rest for 15 minutes. This will allow the brownie to firm up and give you that fudgy brownie texture.

When the brownie is cooled, remove the pan. If using a spring form pan you can undo the sides and life the brownie off the bottom onto your serving dish to cut into squares.

If using a regular baking pan then make your cuts in the pan and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • Fudgy goodness – The brownies cook just long enough to set and may look undercooked when removed from the air fryer. This is normal and the brownie will harden after resting.

  • Use parchment paper – If you do not have a springform pan and use a regular round baking pan, you can line the pan with parchment paper for easy removal after baking.
  • Additions – If you want to make this brownie air fryer recipe extra delicious, when folding in the dry mix from the boxed brownies, fold in some of your favorite additions!
