- Bananas: Use ripe bananas
- Quick Oats: Make sure that you use quick oats, rather than steel-cut oats.
- Dried Cranberries: This adds a lot of flavors, you can substitute this for any dried fruit.
- Raisins: Use regular or golden raisins.
- Nuts: Use walnuts, pecans, or your other favorite nut.
- Seasonings: Salt, Ground Cinnamon, Ground Nutmeg
How to Make Air Fryer Breakfast Cookies
In a large mixing bowl, mix the bananas, quick oats, peanut butter, honey, pure vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and salt. Mix well.
Then fold in the dried cranberries, raisins, nuts, mix well, so the add-ins are well blended.
Scoop the dough onto the tray or a lined air fryer basket (lined with parchment paper) and set into the air fryer for 4-6 minutes at 330 degrees F, air fryer setting. Let them cool before removing them from the tray, as they will harden up.
SOME COMMON QUESTIONS ASKED ABOUT MAKING COOKIES IN THE AIR FRYER–
CAN I BAKE WITH AN AIR FRYER?
Yes, baking is perfect in the air fryer, especially for small batches. Making or baking food in the air fryer is much faster because you no longer need to wait for the oven to preheat.
And the air fryer works by circulating hot air all around the food, which means that every baked good is perfectly cooked.
CAN YOU PUT ALUMINUM FOIL AND PARCHMENT PAPER IN THE AIR FRYER?
Depending on which model air fryer you own (always remember to check your owner’s manual first, since every air fryer is different), you can or can not use parchment paper or foil in your air fryer.
If you can use foil, make sure that it’s properly weighted down so that the aluminum foil does not blow into the heating element, causing damage or a safety hazard.
I typically use parchment paper for baking, the parchment paper is the best suited for allowing the airflow around the air fryer, and I find that the food cooks up more evenly.
HOW TO BAKE COOKIES IN AN AIR FRYER
Depending on which air fryer you own, either basket or oven. For the oven, I usually put my dough directly on the drip tray.
If you have an air fryer basket, you will want to purchase from air fryer parchment paper for cookies, which is perfect. Then just cut the paper to size. The paper that you purchase will be based on the individual air fryer that you own.
HOW TO STORE AIR FRYER SLICE AND BAKE COOKIES
These cookies are best when eaten fresh, within a day or two after being baked or air-fried.
They will last for about a week; place the leftover cookies into an airtight container and place the container in the refrigerator or on the counter.
HOW TO WARM UP AIR FRYER COOKIES
If you want to heat them up, for the family, I put mine in for 2 to 3 minutes at 300 degrees F, or until warmed. Great for a special treat for the family.
