Why The Air Fryer Is The Best Way To Make Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies are one of those sweet treats that are still REALLY good even if they don’t turn out just the way you were expecting.

These Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookies turn out perfect every time!

Here are some more reasons the air fryer is the best way to make these cookies:

  • Fast. These perfectly sweet cookies are ready in less than 30 minutes.
  • Easy. Mix the batter, form cookies, cook in your air fryer. That’s it.
  • Kid-friendly. With a little adult supervision, the air fryer can be safer to operate with little hands than the oven.
  • Delicious. These have all of the traditional flavors you would expect in the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

How To Make Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you have ever made chocolate chip cookies, you’re probably familiar with how little work is involved. This recipe is no different.

Here are the steps you’ll need to take to make the perfect Air Fried Chocolate Chip Cookies:

  1. Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda
  2. Cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until it is smooth
  3. Add Vanilla and eggs to the butter and sugar mixture and mix until smooth
  4. Gently fold 1/3 of the flour mixture into the sugar mixture. Repeat until the contents of both bowls are combined
  5. Add chocolate chips and mix until they are evenly distributed
  6. Form tablespoon-sized balls of the dough

To Air Fry

  1. Heat your air fryer to 350F
  2. Place a layer of parchment paper or aluminum foil inside your air fryer basket where you will be baking your cookies
  3. Place your cookie dough balls approximately 2 inches apart on top of the parchment paper
  4. Gently flatten your cookie dough balls with the palm of your hand or the bottom of a glass so they resemble a cookie shape instead of a ball. They should still be about 1/2″ thick
  5. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until your cookies are beginning to crisp on the edges but are still gooey in the middle

Tips And Tricks

  • Switch it up. Feel free to use your favorite sweet morsels (like peanut butter or butterscotch) or add in chopped walnuts or pecans for your perfect cookie combination.
  • Let them cool. These cookies are good. Really good. It will be tempting to try to grab them to sneak a bite fresh out of the air fryer, but they will fall apart. Allowing them to rest for 2-3 minutes before removing them from the air fryer basket will keep them all in one piece.
  • Make them low carb. I have a delicious Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that is also delicious when made in the air fryer.

Can You Freeze Them?

Do you love having cookies at your fingertips without baking them fresh every time? Do you have a hard time with self-control if you have a dozen cookies in your cookie jar?

Freezing these air fryer cookies is a great solution to your problems! If you want to freeze these cookies after they’re air fried, they stay delicious for up to 4 weeks in the freezer.

Here’s what you need to do to keep them tasting fresh in the freezer:

  1. Let the air fryer cookies cool completely
  2. Place a single layer of cookies in a gallon-sized freezer bag
  3. Layer a piece of parchment paper on top of the cookies
  4. Place the second layer of cookies on top of the parchment paper
  5. Repeat until the bag is full or you run out of cookies
  6. Label the freezer bag with the date and store laying flat in the freezer

Can You Freeze The Dough?

You absolutely can freeze the cookie dough. We actually prefer this to freezing the baked cookies because you get the delicious smell of fresh-baked cookies in your home every time.

Plus, you can decide how many cookies you want to bake. This is great for smaller families or people that try to limit their sweets.

Here’s how we prefer to freeze the dough:

  1. Roll all of the dough into tablespoon-sized balls
  2. Place a single layer of cookie dough in a gallon-sized freezer bag
  3. Layer a sheet of parchment paper on top of the dough balls
  4. Place an additional layer of dough balls on top of the parchment paper and repeat this process until you run out of room or dough

Believe it or not, you do NOT have to defrost your cookie dough before you bake it in the air fryer.

To get deliciously gooey cookies after the dough has been frozen, simply keep the cooking temperature the same but increase the cooking time by 2-3 minutes.
