How to Make Air Fryer Oatmeal Cookies
To begin prep, line the basket with air fryer parchment paper, or use cooking spray on a small cookie sheet if using air fryer with trays.
Using a stand or electric mixer, in a large mixing bowl, cream butter with sugar, then add in the eggs and vanilla. Beat together until light and fluffy.
Add flour, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda to the mixing bowl, and beat together until well combined. Then, fold the oats and raisins into the dough until evenly distributed.
Use a cookie scoop or large spoon to scoop cookie dough, and then drop dough into the air fryer basket. Lay cookies inside the basket in single layer, and leave about 1 inch in between the batch of cookies for room to spread.
Air Fry at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for 5-6 minutes, until the cookies are golden brown. Before removing cookies from basket, let them rest for 1-2 minutes to become firm.
I use a Cosori 5.8 Quart Air Fryer. Because brands of air fryer are different, cook times may vary depending on air fryer wattage and brand.
Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
To make these soft cookies into Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, you can substitute semisweet chocolate chips or white chocolate chips for the one cup raisins.
A few other variations include using half chocolate chips and half raisins for a sweet combination of classic oatmeal raisin cookies and chocolate chip cookies.
Follow the above instructions for cooking times.
Air fryer cookies are an easy way to have warm, gooey cookies in just minutes. You can turn a delicious cookie recipe into a reality in no time at all. And best of all, if you have a craving for a sweet treat, you can just make 3-4 cookies in about 8-10 minutes.
Keep these cookies wrapped in plastic wrap, or in an air tight container, at room temperature. For convenience, I keep mine in a large Ziploc bag and they stay soft for about a week.
Yes. You can add ¼ cup of your favorite chopped nuts to the dough mixture before baking. Although it may slightly alter the soft chewy texture.
When making these cookies, if you don't have room for spread in your air fryer basket, chill the dough for about 30 minutes before cooking.
When removing the cookies, they can be soft when warm. Letting them sit for a few minutes, helps them to slightly firm. You can lift the piece of parchment paper liner with the cookies for easier removal and then transfer them to a wire rack to continue cooling.
