We love eating desserts in our house and are always looking for fun and new ways to cook them. I was so pumped to try Ninja Foodi brownies in this air fryer and pressure cooker machine. Not only did it cook them to perfection but seriously knocked it out of the park. Just one of our Ninja Foodi recipes here. (affiliate links present, originally published 2/19)

If you’re new to the Ninja Foodi, you may be wondering what it is. We will help you along the way with this one. There are actually two ways to make these. One will focus on how to make pressure cooker brownies using that function. You’ll use the lid that isn’t connected for this. The other are air fryer brownies.

We have a lot of resources here on our site for you. You can find a tab at the top that has all of them and bookmarking it on your computer will help you find it easily. You can also join our Easy Ninja Foodi Recipes Group on Facebook too if you love your Ninja! Let’s share our recipes.

  • The Ninja Foodi is basically the combination of an air fryer and a pressure cooker and it’s turning into a one-stop shop for our household.

Is the Ninja Foodi dishwasher safe? Yes! Meaning you can pull out the inner pot and throw that right in to get clean easily. the lid that is not attached is said to be okay to wash that way too. I haven’t tried it as it is easy to just wipe out after I am done but in case you need to.

  • the cooking pot is dishwasher safe
  • the cook and crisp basket is also safe to wash in the dishwasher
  • you can throw the trivet / layered rack in the dishwasher as well

The lid to the Ninja Foodi is better to be hand washed since it has seals on it….but I haven’t had to do much more than wipe it clean with a damp paper towel yet.

Pressure Cooker Boxed Brownies

What are the best Ninja Foodi accessories? There are so many options but for this one you only need one for each of the methods! Some of our favorites are:

  • egg molds
  • bundt pans
  • steamer basket
  • grill pan
  • and so many more!

I know for a fact that desserts definitely bring people together, so it’s not hard at all to create this dessert recipe and know that I won’t have any shortage of taste testers just waiting to take a bite. But, there are plenty of ways that you can share your air fryer recipes with your family and friends:

  • carry in dinners
  • holiday meals
  • birthday parties
  • school functions

Seriously, the list goes on and on. If you make it, they will come. And possibly…eat it all.

What you are going to need to get going on this depends on the shape and size you want. If you want bite size then use the egg mold or the bundt you see at the bottom for a larger size. Cook time will be longer for the larger version of course.

  • 1 box of brownie mix (plus whatever is listed on the box as needed ingredients)
  • Egg mold – if you’re making bite size brownies using the pressure cooker function
  • 7″ springform pan – if you’re making a larger one using the air fryer function

Decide which method you want to follow, air fryer boxed brownies will give the outside a crispness on the edges while the other makes them more ooey gooey. Air crisp lid is the one attached while pressure cooking requires the one that isn’t.

I do have a quick rundown here but there is a printable recipe card at the bottom of this post as well.

  • #1 way using an egg mold for bite size brownies:Make brownies as directed on the box. Spray inside of egg mold holes with non stick spray. Fill each hole 3/4 of the way full with batter.
  • Cover mold with foil. Pour 1.5 c water into your Ninja foodi pot and put a trivet in the center of your pot.
  • Put egg mold on trivet and close your pressure cooker lid (one that isn’t attached), close steam valve too.
  • Turn pot on, press pressure, high temp. for 20 minutes to 22 min. depending on how gooey you want them.
  • Allow to naturally release steam completely. Lift egg mold out and remove foil.
  • Pop out brownie bites! This will make about 3 sets of brownie bites, just wash mold and refill.

There are gluten free mixes out there I have seen if that is a need. I haven’t tried them in any sort of way but I would assume that the timing would remain the same for those as well. It’s seriously as simple as that. What are some fun toppings for your air fryer brownies? Let’s talk about all of those options below too.

Toppings are one of the best parts of this recipe! While everyone is different, here are some simple toppings ideas for your Ninja Foodi brownies: And seriously, the list can go on and on. Anything that you want as a topping, make it happen.

  • whipped cream
  • nuts
  • maraschino cherries
  • mini m&m’s or chocolate chips
  • hot fudge on top of ice cream
  • caramel or a bit of peanut butter (melted)

How do you store the cooked brownies?

I will say first off that air is the enemy. Meaning you want to wrap them tightly so they don’t dry out. They can stay on the counter and prefer that as storing in the fridge with the cold air will dry them out as well. I like super duper moist so if you are too remember these tips.

  • If you happen to have any left over, storing them in an airtight container
  • You can even freeze them if you want to, just make certain that you have a freezer approved container or bag to use.
  • They are really best eaten fresh though

Now that you’re drooling and craving something sweet to eat, make certain that you read below for the recipe on how to make your very own Ninja Foodi brownies! Save or print for later as you’ll be making them again!

No it will just burn the bottom and top that way and the inside won't get done
