Soft and Chewy Air Fryer Cookies (Gluten Free)
Have you ever been to the state or country fair and seen all the deep fried foods? Deep Fried Twinkles, Deep Fried Oreos?
Today we are basically coming up with a deep fried chocolate chip cookie recipe. Air Fryers are pretty much an alternative to deep frying and they are quickly gaining in popularity.
If you love cookies like I do, try our Air Fried Oreos recipe.
What is an Air Fryer?
It is a countertop appliance that will soon win your heart over! It is basically a smaller (the inside of it) type of convection oven that moves very hot air around.
The circulating air cooks your food quickly and evenly. I am guessing that you have probably seen an air fryer infomercial or two!
While smaller inside than a convection oven, the outside is often typically the size of a toaster oven or slightly smaller. Many people buy air fryers to use when camping in their RV or even for cooking “stinky” foods (think air fryer broccoli) outside.
What can you actually cook in an AIR FRYER?
The options of what you can cook in this amazing appliance are truly endless! You know I’m crazy over this hot air frying recipe, but we’ve also cooked tofu, potatoes, french fries, Brussel sprouts and more! Anything that your taste buds want to try straight out of this gadget, give it a go!
While we don’t eat meat in our family, that doesn’t mean that you can’t cook up some fried chicken, chicken tenders, or anything else beer battered or deep fried to that perfect golden brown that you love and that you want with ease in the air fryer basket.
The great part about cooking with an air fryer? The cook time is a breeze. Like literally no time…at all.
For us, we love to use our Power AirFryer XL (affiliate ad link) Yes, so that makes all of our air fryer recipes, specifically power air fryer xl recipes! We also own a Cosori Air Fryer, which you can also buy on Amazon! (affiliate ad link).
So why bake air fryer cookies?
Great question! There are a few reasons. A big reason is that you do not have to heat your large oven. This helps on heating up your kitchen as well! Think about that during those hot summer months!
A lot of people travel with their air fryers. This often is true with food allergy families. We often travel with smaller kitchen appliances because we know they are clean and have been cross contaminated with other allergens.
It is a safe way to prepare food while traveling. So if you often get a hankering for something sweet, traveling with your oil less fryer and this cookie recipe might be a great fit for you!
AIR FRYER success each and every time
I’ve owned my air fryer now for a while, and I have to be honest…I’ve yet to find a recipe that I don’t love. And did I mention how simple it is?
To say I’m a creature of habit is an understatement. I love being able to cook a meal and know with confidence that it’s going to taste amazing each and every time.
Baking in an air fryer might take a touch to figure out. Air fryers do vary slightly, so using your first batch of cookies as a “test run” is a good idea. You might need to adjust the time up or down depending on your fryer!
February = Valentines Day = Time for Chocolate

How to make homemade chocolate chip cookies
These cookies are more like double chocolate chip cookies, I mean can you really ever get too much chocolate? So for this recipe we used some specific ingredients.
Changing the ingredients, just may change the outcome of your recipe. Please keep that in-mind when considering “adapting” the recipe for ingredients you have at home. We can’t promise you’ll get the same results if you don’t use the same ingredients that we used to create this recipe.
We used an all purpose gluten-free flour for this recipe. You can click on the link in the recipe card to see the exact brand that we used. This AP Gluten-Free flour does not contain any gums and we’ve used it many times in previous recipes. With that said, I am unsure if other brands will work as good, but I know that this one works.

Yes, it is crazy all the cool stuff you can do! Its been fun to experiment with it!
I didn't know you can cook cookies in an air fryer! Now I am convinced that I should own one. This looks so good!
Winning! You need one!
My mom has an Air Fryer. I'll have to tell her about this recipe. She probably has no idea that you can make cookies in it!
I know right!? So crazy that an air fryer can make cookies! So fun!
Wow, I had no idea that there were cookie recipes that could be made with an air fryer.
wow I had no idea you can do this with an air fryer?? I thought it was just for things like chips, how wrong I was! I am so going to look into getting one!
Crazy, isn't it!
I do not have an air fryer but I definitely would love to have one. These cookies look like they would be so amazing!
They are a great sweet treat!
I am so looking forward to getting an Air fryer! So many delicious recipes you can do with one of these babies! These cookies look yummy 🙂
Yes, there are so many recipes you can make with them!
I have an air fryer, but so far I've only used it twice. I never would have thought of making cookies in it, but I love the idea!
Such a fun idea, isn't it? 🙂 Enjoy!
What temperature did you cook the cookies. Your recipe says 'bake' Need to try these they look amazing
Hi AJ, we air baked these at 350! 🙂 If you try it with non GF flour, let me know. I'd love to know how they turn out with non gf flour 🙂
Has anyone tried this with another all purpose flour? The one listed in the ingredients isn’t available anymore.
I have not, but I do believe it should work with Bob's Red Mills Gluten Free Flour (all purpose blue bag) but if you aren't gluten free it should work with all purpose flour. Just watch the consistency, you may need to adjust for dry or overwet dough.
My air fryer only goes to 200 so how long do I cook the 🍪
Hi Margaret! Great question 🙂
Your air fryer seems to be in Celcius, so the conversion from 350 Fahrenheit would be 176ºC. We are currently in the process of adding both ºF & ºC to our recipes, and this one seems to have been missed - so thank you for pointing it out to us!
Hope that helps. Enjoy your cookies! 🍪🍪🍪
