Easy Air Fryer Dessert (Banana Split!)


You’re going to love this healthy air fryer dessert recipe –> Air Fryer Banana Split – chunky monkey style!

Two bananas with peanut butter and nuts on a plate.

The other day I had my air fryer out for a different recipe (our air fryer salmon bites) and decided to whip up a viral recipe I saw on Instagram. I love peanut butter and banana, so slicing it up and air frying it with chocolate was a no-brainer. Turns out, my 1-year-old loved it too!

A quick rundown: All you have to do is slice a banana and stuff it with peanut butter and chocolate chips. Wrap it in a piece of tin foil and air fry at 400ºF for 6 minutes. Then, top with chopped peanuts and sea salt!

What You Need for this Air Fryer Banana Split

Also, make sure to have some tin foil on hand because you’ll wrap your banana up so that it gets nice and toasty without oozing out in your air fryer.
