How Does An Air Fryer Bake Cookies?

An air fryer works by circulating hot around even side of a piece of food. When it comes to baking cookies, all the hot air targets every side, top and bottom so you are getting even baking at every degree. This bakes up the keto cookie faster and creates a gooey chocolatey cookie.

Refrigerate the Dough

Although it’s not necessary but highly recommended, refrigerating the dough before baking helps to harden the dough so it will keep your cookie from spreading when it bakes. It also helps to meld the flavors together. I usually refrigerate all cookies before baking as it yields a more flavorful, buttery keto cookie.

How Do I know When My Air Fryer Keto Cookies Are Done?

Air fryer keto chocolate chip cookies bake a little bit differently than they do in the oven. When cookies are baked in the oven, they start to get browned around the edges. When you bake a cookie in the air fryer, you need to look at the top of the cookie to check for doneness. The top should begin to brown along the top and the sides when it is finished cooking. This is important because every air fryer is different in terms of cooking times and temperature.

Simply add your dough balls to a parchment lined baking try and bake in a 350 degree oven for 6 to 8 minutes. Let them continue to cool on the baking tray after removing them from the oven before transferring the cookies to a wire rack.

Keto Cookies Storage

Nothing beats a warm keto chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the air fryer, but there is no way you can finish all those delicious gooey cookies on your own unless you are making them for other people. If you happen to have extras, you can store them for up to 4 days in an airtight container at room temperature or in the fridge. Keto cookies tend to dry out quickly because there isn’t any sugar in them to help hold onto the moisture.

You can also store the keto cookie dough. This works great if you make your dough in bulk. Store the cookie dough in ball form or in a giant ball wrapped in plastic in the refrigeratore for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the cookie dough for up to a month. Just thaw the dough out in the fridge or the counter before you bake them in the air fryer or oven.
