  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon Baking powder

  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the blueberries.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
  • Fill each muffin tin or silicone cup about 2/3 full with the batter.
  • Place the filled muffin tins or cups in the air fryer basket, ensuring they don’t touch.

  • Once done, remove the muffins from the air fryer and let them cool on a wire rack.
Chefs Tips
  1. Do not overmix the batter; this can result in dense muffins.
  2. Fresh blueberries work best, but if using frozen, do not thaw them. Add them directly to the batter.
  3. For an added touch, sprinkle some granulated sugar on top of each muffin before cooking for a sweet, crispy top.
  4. Ensure there’s enough space between each muffin in the air fryer to allow for proper air circulation.
