Ingredients and Variations

Cookie dough – Gluten-free flour and a sugar alternative can be used in place of regular. Use room-temperature butter and egg for faster blending.

Air Fryer Tips & Tricks

  • For uniform cookies, use a cookie scoop. This helps them bake evenly!
  • Bake one ‘test’ cookie to gauge the best cooking time for the cookie texture you want.
  • Subsequent batches will likely take less time to cook since the air fryer will already be hot.

Keeping Cookies Fresh

Air Fryer oatmeal cookies will last about a week if kept in an airtight container. Freeze baked and cooled cookies for up to a month in a freezer bag.

Put a slice of bread in with them to absorb additional moisture and keep them from crumbling apart. Re-crisp them in the air fryer and serve warm!
