First, start by preheating the air fryer to 325 degrees F for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Whisk together to combine.
Next, add in the egg, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Whisk together to combine but do not over mix.
Add the chocolate chips to the muffin batter and use a spatula to fold them in. Use a cookie scoop to add batter to each cupcake liner filling them about 3/4 of the way full. Transfer the muffin pan to the air fryer and cook at 325 degrees F for 13-15 minutes. Remove the chocolate chip muffins from the air fryer and let them cool at room temperature before serving.
Finally, serve with a glass of cold milk and enjoy.
- Check for doneness around the 13 minute mark by inserting a toothpick down the center of a muffin. If the toothpick comes out clean (disregard the chocolate) then it’s ready.
- You may use a hand mixer or stand mixer to make these air fryer muffins. However, I prefer to whisk by hand to ensure I do not over mix. If you do use a mixer, make sure to mix on low speed.
- I like using these single muffin pans for my air fryer because it fits inside of almost any air fryer. However, you may also use this standard muffin pan as well, just make sure it will fit inside of your air fryer.
