No Butter Needed Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookies

No, you don't need butter for these cookies. Instead the cookies are made with olive oil, which gives the cookies incredible taste and texture. I sometimes have to bake the cookies one-by-one (they cook in 10 minutes in the air fryer), so that I am not tempted to eat just one more.... I usually opt for baking a half dozen or so cookies (I do share with my husband/family) and stash the rest of the dough in the refrigerator to bake later. The dough will keep for a week or two (maybe longer, but I've never gotten past week two). The cookies are slightly thick and a little chewy in the centers thanks to the oil and a quick cooking oats in the dough. I've used different types of chocolate chips, and I recommend using dark chocolate, slightly bittersweet chips. The dark chocolate helps balance out the sweetness of the cookies. That said, if you like really sweet cookies, you can use milk chocolate in them. I also like to use chopped hazelnuts in the cookies, which have a mild, distinctive, buttery taste, but you can vary the nuts to suit your taste or just leave them out. Although the olive oil in the cookies doesn't exactly make them "healthy," it does make them good! Enjoy!
