If you like to make brownies from scratch, go at it. I like brownie mixes that are quick, easy to make, and delicious made in my air fryer. You only put in oil, eggs, and water. Add walnuts or almonds if you like.
Pillsbury® and Betty Crocker® make great brownie mixes in chocolate fudge, classic fudge, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and premium brownie mixes of caramel swirl, chocolate chunk, chocolate walnut, confetti mixes for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Holiday in the Pillsbury® Funfetti® mixes. Other brownie types are gluten-free with chocolate chips including sugar-free mixes.
Prepare the brownies according to the package instructions.
Most air fryers are small and I found the Avalon Bay Air Fryer, 3.2-liters (3.4-quarts) large enough to bake a brownie mix and this air fryer comes with the baking pan, rack, and free recipe book.
Read my full review for the Avalon Bay Air Fryer with accessories here.
The red unit is about $80 and the black fryer is about $100 on Amazon.com. The manufacturer states that’s because the black one is more popular and that doesn’t make any sense to me.
Preheat the air fryer to 350-degrees F. Use butter or cooking oil for the pan bottom but do not use Pam® cooking spray or other sprays. Put the prepared batter in the baking pan and bake at 350-degrees F. for 10- to 14-minutes. Put a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, your brownies are done. The box mix makes 2 pans of brownies depending on the baking pan size.
The pan for the Avalon is 8-inches in diameter and 1-inch deep. I always make only 1 pan of brownies since I like them thicker rather than thin.
Top with icing, ice cream, caramel or butterscotch, strawberries, M&M candies, or whipped cream. The brownies above are peanut butter with honey topping.
