Summer is great for so many things — like frozen drinks, days at the beach and dinners al fresco. But baking? Maybe not so much. It feels almost counter-intuitive to crank up the oven on a balmy summer day. So, what do you do when you have a craving for banana bread during the hottest months of the year?

There’s a great alternative — the air fryer! Baking banana bread is quicker in one of these trendy gadgets, thanks to convection-like heat and the need for less batter. Whether you’re whipping up a breakfast treat just for yourself or an after-school snack for your kiddos, it’s a great way to bake in small batches.

We love this Food Network Kitchen recipe for so many reasons — yogurt makes the bread wonderfully dense and moist, and wheat germ adds a fiber-filled punch. Plus, the whole thing comes together in the air fryer in just over an hour and requires just 10 active minutes! Before you start cooking, we recommend sprinkling the top of batter with turbinado sugar for a crunchy topping. And if you want an even-more indulgent treat, stir some chocolate chips into the batter for a dessert-worthy banana bread.
