What Ingredients Do You Need to Make Air Fryer Oatmeal Cookies?

  • Sugar– Helps cookies spread, adds a more crisp texture to cookies, and surface cracking due to crystallization, which can be desirable depending on the type. 
  • Unsalted Butter- Always buy unsalted butter for baking, then add salt as needed. This is a quality-control technique to produce better baked goods.
  • Vanilla Extract-To add that little extra something
  • Eggs- Eggs separate more easily when cold, so if the recipe calls for separated eggs, do that when you take them out of the fridge, then let them come to room temperature.
  • All Purpose Flour– When in doubt, always go with “all purpose” flour
  • Salt-All baked goods taste better with a touch of salt
  • Baking Powder-Necessary leveling agent
  • Cinnamon– adds a little kick to the taste
  • Baking Soda– Necessary leveling agent
  • Oats– The star of the show
