Air Fryer Chocolate Chip cookies

Our Air Fryer has been working overtime lately making Korean Fried Chicken, Crispy Chicken Tenders and the most delicious Roast Beef.

But did you know that in addition to all the cooking you can do in your Air Fryer it is also perfect for baking?

I decided to bake my stressed-out daughter a batch of her favourite cookies and was curious to see whether I could use my Air Fryer to bake them.

Turns out air fryer cookies are a REVELATION! These epic chocolate chip cookies look like they were bought at a bakery only even tastier (and

Here’s what you will need

I used my Cosori Air Fryer for this recipe. It has a large basket which can make four extra large cookies or six smaller ones. You must use a liner in your air fryer when baking cookies to avoid mess and prevent them from falling apart.

  • Softened (but not melted!) unsalted butter or baking spread
  • Light soft brown sugar and granulated sugar
  • Vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste
  • Medium eggs
  • Plain flour (all purpose) plus baking powder and soda.
  • Sea salt
  • Chocolate chips or chocolate bars chopped up into smallish chunks

Add the flour and raising agents and continue mixing until the dough comes together. Now stir in 2/3 of the chocolate chips or chocolate chunks and chill the dough for 30 minutes or up to two days.

Line the basket of the air fryer with a baking liner or parchment paper. Form balls of the dough, using a cookie scoop or about two tablespoons of dough. Press some of the reserved chocolate chips on the cookies.

Cook for 10 minutes at 160°C (325°F). Take the basket out of the air fryer and leave the cookies in it to rest for five minutes or until firm enough to remove using a small spatula. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

TIPS FOR BEST EVER AIR FRYER COOKIES

  • Make sure to use a liner in your air fryer otherwise the batter and chocolate may melt through the basket. You can use parchment paper. but cut a few holes through it before hand.
  • Space the cookies in the air fryer basket so that they have room to rise and spread.
  • The cookies are ready when the edges start to color. In my Cosori air fryer that took 10 minutes for large chocolate chip cookies. Other models may vary so do a test batch to determine the optimum cooking time.
  • DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT remove the cookies from the air fryer immediately after cooking. They are still soft and likely to fall apart. Leave them to cool for a few minutes before removing from the air fryer.
  • Chilling the cookie dough before baking allows for the butter to solidify and the sugar and flour to absorb moisture. This will help the cookies spread less while baking and become lovely crispy yet chewy!
  • Experiment with using dark and milk chocolate chips or roughly chopped chocolate bars in your cookies. Milk chocolate can make the cookies a bit too sweet so I recommend using a mix of dark and milk chocolate chips. Large chocolate chips are ideal for these cookies, if you can find them!

Baking these cookies in the oven

Preheat the oven to 190°C /395°F. Scoop balls of the dough onto a reusable baking liner or baking parchment, placing slightly apart. Press extra chocolate chips on top of the cookies and flatten slightly.

Bake for 12-13 minutes or until the cookies start coloring at the edges. Leave the cookies on the trays for five minutes then transfer onto a wire cooling rack. Store in an airtight container.
