Hungry for dessert? Why not whip up a fast batch of air fryer brownies? This simple recipe makes 8 small, yummy brownie wedges using an air fryer!

I don’t know about you, but BROWNIES are always a big hit in our home. My own recipe for brownies is our all-time favorite! Hands down the absolute BEST way to make traditional made from scratch baked brownies, in my humble opinion!

Recently, I came across a recipe online for air fryer brownies that I really wanted to try. It’s been fun experimenting with recipes using our Cosori air fryer, a cool appliance that cooks or “fries” food with highly super heated air. These brownies are easily created from scratch, and so I decided to make them as a surprise for my hubby.

My husband Ken loves his brownies without frosting, so I decided to make him his very own batch of unfrosted air fryer brownies! The recipe makes 8 small wedge servings, and tasted great, so he was in heaven while they lasted!

Prepare The Pan

The air fryer brownies are cooked in a 7″ baking pan. I ordered a Cosori Set of 6 air fryer accessories on Amazon last year, that is compatible with many types and sizes of air fryers. The baking pan I use came from this set. **NO, I am not an affiliate, just telling you where I got the pan!

Generously coat the bottom and half way up the sides of a 7″ baking pan with butter. You want the pan well-buttered, so the brownies will easily release from the pan once done. Once the pan is buttered, set it aside and preheat your air fryer to 330°F.

Make The Batter

Making the batter is super easy! If you can stir, you can make it! To save time, make the batter while the air fryer is preheating!

Measure flour, sugar, cocoa powder, melted butter, eggs, oil, vanilla, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir well, to combine. Once these ingredients are fully mixed, the batter is ready! EASY!

Cooking The Brownies

Evenly spread the brownie batter in the well-buttered baking pan. Try to make the top of the batter as smooth as you can.

Cook the brownies in a preheated 330°F air fryer for 15 minutes, or until done (see below).

How Do I Know If The Brownies Are DONE?

Since various brands of air fryers tend to vary widely in temperature rates, it is best to check the brownies before the end of the cooking time.  I start checking them to see if they’re done at the 13 minute mark, to make sure they don’t overcook.

Pause the machine, and insert a toothpick into the middle of the brownies. If the toothpick comes out mostly free of batter (clean), you will know the brownies are done. If not, pop them back into the air fryer for another minute, then check again. Better to check them often, then end up with dried out brownies, right? RIGHT!

Remove The Brownies From The Pan

Once the brownies have cooled to room temperature, CAREFULLY remove them from the baking pan by inverting the pan onto a serving platter. If you buttered the pan really well, they should come out very easily! Flip the brownies over for serving.

Time To Serve The Air Fryer Brownies!

When the brownies have cooled to room temperature, sift powdered sugar lightly over the top surface. This is an optional step, but makes it look nice, especially if you will not be frosting them! I added a thinly sliced (but not cut all the way through) large strawberry for some color.

P.S. If you want to frost them, try my recipe for creamy brownie frosting!

Slice the air fryer brownies into 8 equal sized wedges. Serve with whipped cream and/or a little scoop of ice cream and chocolate syrup for an eye-pleasing, tasty treat!

I really hope you enjoy making these yummy brownies in your handy dandy air fryer! Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!

  1. Generously coat the bottom and half way up the sides of a 7" baking pan with butter. You want pan well-buttered, so brownies will easily release from pan once done. Once pan is buttered, set it aside and preheat air fryer to 330°F.

  2. While air fryer is preheating, make the brownie batter. Measure flour, sugar, cocoa powder, melted butter, eggs, oil, vanilla, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl. Stir well, to fully combine.

  3. Evenly spread batter in buttered baking pan. Try to make the top of the batter as smooth as you can. Cook in preheated 330°F air fryer for 15 minutes, or until done. Different brands of air fryers tend to vary widely in temperature rates, so check the brownies before the end of the cooking time. I recommend checking them at the 13 minute mark, to make sure they don't overcook. Pause the machine; insert a toothpick into the middle of the brownies. If toothpick comes out mostly free of batter (clean), you will know the brownies are done. If not, pop them back into the air fryer for another minute, then check again.

  4. When done, transfer pan to a wire rack to cool. Once brownies have cooled, CAREFULLY remove them from pan by inverting the pan onto a serving platter. If desired, sift powdered sugar over the top or apply frosting once brownies are at room temperature. Slice into 8 wedges, serve, and enjoy!
