How to Make Air Fryer Zucchini Bread

This air fryer baking recipe does not require any fancy ingredients. Here is a list of what you will need:

  • 1 large zucchini
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Just 9 ingredients! Simple right! No fuss with lots of flavor.

For this recipe I like to use a springform pan, but you can use any pan that will fit into your air fryer.

To begin, spray you baking pan with non stick cooking spray to keep the zucchini bread from sticking. You can also use butter to grease the pan if you prefer or even line your pan parchment paper.

Next, cut off the ends of the zucchini and cut it into large chunks. Then use a food processor to shred the zucchini using the shredding disc. If you don’t have a food processor you can use a grater to do this step by hand.

Now to get the batter started, add the eggs, sugar, oil, and vanilla to a large bowl and whisk together until well combined. Then add the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to the bowl and mix well with a large spoon. Finally, add the shredded zucchini and mix one more time until the zucchini is fully incorporated into the batter.

Then pour the zucchini bread batter into the prepared baking pan and put it into the air fryer to bake for 35 minutes at 320 degrees fahrenheit. After 35 minutes check to see if the air fryer zucchini bread is done with a toothpick or cake tester. The toothpick should come out clean when the bread is fully cooked. If the zucchini bread is not quite done just put it back into the air fryer and cook for another 5 minutes.

Once it’s finished, allow the air fryer zucchini bread to cool in the baking pan in the removed air fryer tray for 10 minutes before attempting to remove it from the pan. Then once the bread has cooled down a bit you can remove it from the air fryer tray and pan.

Now enjoy the delicious zucchini bread you just made! You can eat it as is, spread it with butter, or even add a dollop of yogurt.

How to Store and Reheat Zucchini Bread

This air fryer zucchini bread will keep for up to one week at room temperature when stored either covered or in a container. You can also store it in an airtight container or sealed bag in the freezer for months.

To reheat the zucchini bread from room temperature just put it in the microwave for about a minute at medium power or in the oven at 350 degrees fahrenheit for about 3-5 minutes. From frozen, I suggest you allow it to thaw out at room temperature and then reheat.

Air Fryer Zucchini Bread Variations

If you want to add a little extra to your bread, walnuts are a classic addition to zucchini bread. Another great addition are raisins as well as more spices such as nutmeg or ginger. Basically any type of chopped nut, dried fruit, or warm spice can be added to this recipe to make it your own.

  • Now, cut the ends off of the zucchini and cut it into large chunks. Then shred the zucchini chunks in a food processor using the shredding disc or you can shred the zucchini by hand using a grater. Once the zucchini is shredded just set it aside for a later step.
  • Add the eggs to a large bowl along with the sugar, oil, and vanilla. Then whisk together until combined well.
  • Next, add the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt to the large bowl and mix with a large spoon until combined.
  • Add the shredded zucchini to the batter and mix until fully incorporated.

  • Once the zucchini bread has cooked for 35 minutes check to see if it's done using a toothpick or cake tester, which should come out clean when the bread is done. If the zucchini bread is not quite done just put it back into the air fryer and cook for another 5 minutes.
  • Once the bread is done allow it to cool in the baking pan in the removed air fryer tray for 10 minutes. Then take the pan out and release the ring of the springform pan if you are using one and remove the bottom. Then you can place the zucchini bread on a dish and enjoy!
