Make Chewy Oatmeal Cookies in Your Air Fryer

These cookies are good, easy, and quick. They contain ingredients that you probably have on hand, and you can bake a few cookies and stash the remainder of the dough in the refrigerator to bake later. The cookies are a little crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside thanks to a little brown sugar and coconut. The cookies also have walnuts in them, which provides crunch and a touch of bitterness that keeps the cookies from being too sweet. I like to add a touch of caramel extract to the dough, but it's optional. The cookies are great with a big glass of milk or coffee or tea, and they make nice accompaniments to fruit or ice cream for dessert. Enjoy!

Chewy Oatmeal Air Fryer Cookies -- Makes 12+


3 tablespoons of melted butter

2 tablespoons of canola oil

1/3 cup of sugar

1/4 cup of dark brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

1/4 teaspoon of salt

1 large egg

1/4 teaspoon of caramel extract (optional but good)

1/4 teaspoon of vanilla

3/4 cup of flour

3/4 cup of quick oats

1/2 cup of chopped or broken walnuts

1/2 cup of coconut


Cut small pieces of baking parchment to fit in your air fryer basket. In a medium bowl or measure combine the melted butter, oil, sugars, baking soda, baking powder, salt, egg, and extracts until well mixed. Stir in the flour until combined, then stir in the oats, walnuts, and coconut and stir until everything is mixed an you have a fairly stiff dough. Drop two or three 1 1/2 tablespoon scoops of dough onto each piece of parchment, spacing the dough mounds an inch or two apart. Flatten the dough mounds a little with damp fingers. Put one dough-topped piece of parchment in your air fryer basket, put the basket in the air fryer, and air fry the cookies at 320 degrees for about 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the cookies on their parchment from the air fryer basket to cool. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining dough.
