  • Air Fryer
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixing Spoon
  • Food processor
  • Loaf Tin
  • Baking paper
  • Alfoil


Air Fryer Zucchini Bread

  • 1 ½ cups wholemeal self raising flour sifted
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 egg whisked
  • cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups shredded zucchini Note 1
  • 1 cup walnuts


Air Fryer Zucchini Bread

  • Turn Air Fryer on to 180 degrees, 350 Fahrenheit (Note 1)
  • Line a Loaf Tin with baking paper. (Recommended size: 19cm L, 11.5cm W, 9cm D. or 7.4 inches x 4.5 inches x 3.5 inches)
  • Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a mixing bowl
  • Add olive oil and whisked egg, stir to combine
  • Add brown sugar and stir again to combine
  • Use a food processor or grater to shred zucchini. Measure 2 cups of this and add to the bread batter.
  • Add walnuts to food processor and roughly chop (1-3 seconds)
  • Add chopped walnuts to batter and stir to combine
  • Transfer wet mix to lined loaf tin
  • Place in Air Fryer basket. Cook for 15 mins, use oven mits to remove, wrap top with tin foil and have enough length to fold foil under the tin. Use oven mits again to place tin back into the Air Fryer.
  • Cook for a further 55 to 60 mins. Test with a skewer and if not wet batter, use oven mits to remove from Air Fryer and place on cooking wrack to cool. Note: If any wet batter or the top doesn't spring back when pressed with a finger tip, Cook for a further 5 to 10 mins.


  • Note 1 It is important to measure the shredded (or grated) zucchini before you add it to the recipe. You need an exact measure of the shredded amount. I used 1 large zucchini, shredded it and measured, it is 2 cups. You might need 2 zucchini if they are smaller. But either way, only add 2 cups as this ensures the bread is fully cooked. according to the rest of the instructions. 
  • Note 2 You don't need to do this step until you are ready to cook your zucchini bread.  However, it is the 1st thing most people look for when reading a recipe and so has merit at the top of the recipe card for information. If your Air Fryer does not require preheating, simply turn it on once you have placed the wet batter into the cake tin and cook from then.
