When you have a craving for homemade cookies but don’t want to use a regular oven, try this recipe for Small Batch Air Fryer Chocolate Chip Cookies! This recipe makes six cookies that are perfectly moist, crumbly, and delicious. Gluten-free and dairy-free options included.

  • Total Time: 23 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (for gluten-free, use a gluten-free baking mix)
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted (use ¼ cup of coconut oil for dairy-free diets)
  • 1/3 cup plus two tablespoons sugar
  • 1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips


  1. Line your air fryer basket with a piece of parchment paper that has slits or holes cut into it. If you don’t have parchment paper, you can also use aluminum foil.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda. Set the bowl aside.
  3. Then, in a small bowl, combine the butter and sugar. Use a hand mixer to cream the butter and sugar together for about 1 minute. If you don’t have a hand mixer, then you can use a spatula to mix them, just try to get the mixture really smooth.
  4. Stir the egg yolk and vanilla extract into the butter and sugar mixture.
  5. Pour the wet ingredient mixture into the dry ingredient mixture and then stir to combine.
  6. Lastly, fold in the chocolate chips and then use a spoon to form the mixture into six cookies. Use your hands to flatten the cookies so they aren’t too thick.
  7. Lay the cookies in a single layer in the air fryer basket and bake them for 8 minutes at 350°F.
  8. When the cookies are done baking, they will turn a golden brown around the edges. Remove them to a serving plate and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.


  1. You can use white sugar, brown sugar, or coconut sugar in this recipe.
  2. Use a gluten-free flour blend to make these cookies gluten-free.
  3. Store any leftover cookies in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
  4. Be sure to use dairy-free chocolate chips if you are on a dairy-free diet.
