  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/3 cup milk

  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 1 tablespoon flour (for coating blueberries)



  1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well to ensure all dry ingredients are evenly distributed.

  1. Prepare the Wet Ingredients:

  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract until well combined.

  1. Combine the Ingredients:

  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring gently until just combined. Do not overmix, as this can result in dense muffins.

  • In a small bowl, toss the blueberries with 1 tablespoon of flour to prevent them from sinking to the bottom of the muffins.

  • Gently fold the blueberries into the batter.

  1. Preheat the Air Fryer:

  • Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (175°C). Preheating helps ensure even cooking from the start.

  1. Prepare the Muffin Cups:

  • Line the air fryer-safe muffin cups or silicone molds with paper liners or lightly grease them with cooking spray.

  • Fill each muffin cup about two-thirds full with the batter.

  1. Air Fry the Muffins:

  • Place the filled muffin cups in the air fryer basket, leaving space between them for even air circulation. You may need to cook in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.

  • Air fry at 350°F (175°C) for 12-15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. The tops should be golden brown.


  1. Serve the Blueberry Muffins:

  • Carefully remove the muffins from the air fryer and let them cool in the cups for a few minutes.

  • Transfer the muffins to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Serve warm or at room temperature, perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a snack.

  • Mix-ins: Try adding other fruits like raspberries or chocolate chips for a different twist.

  • Storage: Store any leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen for up to a month and reheated in the air fryer at 300°F (150°C) for a few minutes.
