Chocolate Chip Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe by Coco Morante from The Ultimate Air Fryer Oven Cookbook

When you want a few treats right away, make this small-batch recipe, which yields 6 fantastic and generously sized cookies in record time. Press them down before baking for a more traditionally shaped cookie, or leave them mounded high for ooey gooey centers. This recipe is egg-free, so you can easily make them vegan if you prefer.

  • 4tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1/3cup brown sugar
  • 2tbsp milkdairy or unsweetened plant-based
  • 1/2tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 1/2tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/4tsp kosher salt
  • 1/3cup chocolate chips
  • 1/3cup Chopped walnuts
  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the butter, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Add the flour, oats, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips, and walnuts, and stir until evenly combined.
  2. Preheat the oven on BAKE at 325°F and set the cooking time for 9 minutes. Line the cooking pan with aluminum foil, tucking it over the edges so it is firmly secured.
  3. Use a 3 tbsp cookie scoop to portion 6 cookies out onto the lined pan, about 2 inches apart. Press the cookies down a bit until they are about 2 inches in diameter. (Alternatively, you can skip the pressing step for a very domed cookie with a gooey center.)
  4. Bake the cookies in the preheated oven.
  5. When the cooking program ends, wearing heat-resistant mitts, remove the pan from the oven. Let the cookies cool on the pan for 10 minutes.
  6. Use a thin flexible spatula to transfer the cookies to serving plates or a cooling rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

NOTES Be sure to line the cooking pan with aluminum foil not parchment paper. It’s less likely to flap around in the oven and cause the cookies to become misshapen. This timing and temperature also works well for store-bought, preportioned cookie dough, such as the varieties from Nestle and Pillsbury. Break apart the dough into squares, roll it into balls, then bake the cookies at 325°F for 9 minutes.
