To help show you how you can make some of the most basic breads in your air fryer, we’ve tested out our favorites. From muffins to scones, bagels and breads, rolls and naan, there’s something for everyone in this article. Who doesn’t love the smell of freshly baked bread? We sure do, and we’re hoping you feel the same way! You can make most of these breads using gluten-free flours, but some of the properties that make these basic breads so delicious revolve around the gluten in the flours we’ve used. So, although we encourage you to try these out with whatever gluten-free flour you prefer, we recommend you start with smaller batches until you get the right combination of ingredients that work best for you.
We found variations among various brands of air fryers during the testing process. Some brands run hotter than others, so when baking it’s important to watch the bread closely. Consider checking for doneness sooner than the recipes in these recipes instruct, especially if you know your machine runs hotter.

English Scones

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 8 minutes

Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt2 tablespoons sugar1/4 cup unsalted butter2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon whole milk, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut in the butter until pea-size crumbles appear. Make a well in the center and pour in 2/3 cup of the milk. Quickly mix the batter until a ball forms. Knead the dough 3 times.
  3. Place the dough onto a floured surface and, using your hands or a rolling pin, flatten the dough until it’s 3/4 inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter or drinking glass, cut out 10 circles, reforming the dough and flattening as needed to use up the batter.
  4. Brush the tops lightly with the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk.
  5. Place the scones into the air fryer basket. Cook for 8 minutes or until golden brown and cooked in the center.
Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 3 days or in the freezer for 3 months. Keep things cold! From the flour to the butter to the milk, the colder everything is, the better the scones will turn out. Serve with fresh jam and whipped honey butter. Or go savory with cream cheese and chives. Add in 1/2 cup fresh blueberries and lemon zest for berry scones. Or try a savory scone with cheddar cheese.

Mini Everything Bagels

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 6 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder1/2 teaspoon salt1 cup plain Greek yogurt1 egg, whisked1 teaspoon sesame seeds1 teaspoon dehydrated onions1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds1/2 teaspoon garlic powder1/2 teaspoon sea salt flakes

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the dough and add in the Greek yogurt. Mix with a spoon until a dough forms.
  2. Place the dough onto a heavily floured surface and knead for 3 minutes. You may use up to 1 cup of additional flour as you knead the dough, if necessary.
  3. Cut the dough into 8 pieces and roll each piece into a 6-inch, snakelike piece. Touch the ends of each piece together so it closes the circle and forms a bagel shape. Brush the tops of the bagels with the whisked egg.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the sesame seeds, dehydrated onions, poppy seeds, garlic powder, and sea salt flakes. Sprinkle the seasoning on top of the bagels.
  5. Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees. Using a bench scraper or flat-edged spatula, carefully place the bagels into the air fryer basket. Spray the bagel tops with cooking spray. Air-fry the bagels for 6 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the bread to cool at least 10 minutes before slicing for serving.
Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 days. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to do 2 or 3 batches. Keep your hands and surface heavily floured while kneading the dough. The dough should not stick to your hands when it’s ready to roll out. Craving something sweet? Knead in raisins and top with cinnamon and sugar instead. Also, if you want to up the fiber and nutrients content, you can use whole-wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour.
