Vegan Chocolate Cookies
  • Save


  • 1 3/4 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour, if you need it
  • One teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup of butter, either vegan or regular
  • 3/4 cup of dark sugar
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar plus three tablespoons
  • 1/4 cup milk I used almond milk with no sugar added.
  • One teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Cooking Directions

Combine the dry ingredients in a small mixing cup. Add the melted unsalted margarine and mix well. Then add the milk and the flavoring (vanilla) and stir until combined.

Fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients in a gentle way until they are all mixed. Mix the chocolate chips in. Put the bowl in the fridge for at least an hour with the lid on.

Bring the bowl out of the fridge. Using parchment paper, line the basket of an air fryer. Roll out 12 balls of cookie dough with your hands.

Put three or four balls of cookie dough into the air fryer's basket. Make sure there is enough room for the cookies to spread out.

The cookies must be air fried for 7-8 minutes at 170C/325F or until the edges are hard.
After five minutes, take the basket out of the air fryer and allow the cookies cool in the basket. Take care, and transfer the cookies from the basket to the cooling rack. While waiting for them to cool, continue air frying the rest of the cookies in batches.

Recipe 3(Air Fryer Peanut Butter Cookies)

peanut Butter Cookies
  • Save


  • Two tablespoons (28 grams) of softened vegan butter
  • Nutty Spread, to Taste, 1/4 Cup
  • Six tablespoons of light brown sugar
  • a non-dairy milk equivalent to 1 tablespoon
  • Add the extract of half a vanilla bean
  • Correctly measuring 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour
  • About a quarter of a teaspoon of baking soda
  • Salt, about 1/8 teaspoon

Cooking Instructions

Cream together the butter, peanut butter, and brown sugar in a bowl until frothy.
Beat in the milk and vanilla extract to the wet ingredients.
Once the dry mixture has been added to the wet mix, add the baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and sea salts.

Cover the air fryer's basket with parchment paper (you may need to cut the piece to ensure the size fits perfectly).

Divide the dough into 12 or 13 equal balls (1 tbsp [18 g] of dough each) and set them on the parchment paper in the air fryer, with enough room between them so they may expand while cooking (you may need to do this in batches).

Make a crisscross design in each dough ball with a fork. Fry in an air fryer at 325 degrees Fahrenheit (160 degrees Celsius) for 5 to 6 minutes or until golden brown (all air fryers can be different, so you may need to bake for less or more time, depending on yours).

It would be best to wait until they have cooled down and hardened before eating them.

Substitutions and variations

A reader shared that she successfully substituted applesauce for the aquafaba in the recipe (either because she didn't have any on hand or simply didn't like the flavor).

You can change up the additions however you like. You can swap out the chocolate chips with any other cookie mix-ins you choose, in amounts of your choosing. Try:

  • Macadamia-free white chocolate chips equal to two tablespoons
  • sliced almonds and dried cranberries, two tablespoons each
  • Dried apricots and pistachios, each cut into two tablespoons
  • Nuts and dried fruit, two teaspoons each
  • The dough itself is open to being flavored further. These cookies can be given a seasonal twist by adding a pinch of cinnamon or pumpkin spice.

Important recipe notes

Preparing these cookies in an air fryer couldn't be more straightforward. Combine all ingredients, form into desired shapes, and bake in an air fryer.
You should use parchment paper.

If you don't want to have to chip cookie crumbs out of the bottom of your air fryer basket, parchment paper is a must. Divide your parchment paper into quarters (but not wax paper or tin foil).
Cool it down completely before serving.

I know how difficult it can be to wait. Please wait 10 minutes for this to cool on the parchment paper. Until it cools, the cookie will be pretty tender.

The cookie dough for the air fryer can be prepared a day ahead of time and stored in the fridge in an airtight container. Then, take it out of the refrigerator an hour or so before you plan to bake it so it can reach room temperature.

When the hunger for cookies comes, you won't have to worry about

Avoid sticking.

To avoid sticking, using the right pan and cookie sheet is essential. A nonstick baking spray or parchment paper will help keep your cookies from sticking. If you're using a nonstick cookie sheet, ensure it is completely covered in oil so the heat can reach all parts of the pan and prevent burning.

If you don't have a nonstick cookie sheet, try placing your cookies on a cooling rack after they come out of the oven.

This will allow them to cool quicker and prevent them from getting soggy while still being held upright instead of laying flat on their backs like they would if you set them directly onto cooling racks or another type of surface.

Be careful when opening the air fryer

After cooking, let it cool down completely before opening it. If you open the air fryer while hot, it can burn your hands and fingers. Also, don't touch the hot air fryer with your bare hands or anything that isn't heat-resistant (no wooden utensils).
