Why Should I Use the Air Fryer?
The air fryer bakes these keto chocolate chip cookies to perfection while leaving the chocolate chips gooey and delicious.
Using the air fryer to bake keto desserts has helped me to keep my house cool in the Summer. I love not having to worry about heating up the house to bake a low-carb dessert. Ever since I got my air fryer, I have been experimenting with different recipes and trying to make use of it as much as possible.
Maybe heating up the house isn’t your concern, especially in the Winter, there are other reasons to use your air fryer to cook. When it’s snowing or raining outside and I don’t want to run my grill, I make my favorite BBQ recipes in the air fryer.
Some of my favorite low-carb air fryer recipes so far are these Air fryer Baby Back Ribs and I even figured out how to make the healthiest lunchmeat in the air fryer. This keeps me from heading to the store for an inferior product full of preservatives.
I have also experimented with air fryer dehydrator recipes like these air fryer banana chips that turned out amazing. I like to crumble them up and put them on ice cream when I am really craving the banana flavor. This way I can make the banana last longer and I am not taking in too many carbs to mess up my diet. I don’t know why but one of the hardest foods to give up on keto for me has been bananas. So this recipe has really saved me many times.
How Do I Make Air fryer Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies?
This recipe comes together by mixing all of the dry ingredients first and then adding the wet ingredients to the dough. Mix everything together and then after everything is thoroughly combined, add in the chocolate chips.
There are a number of keto-friendly chocolate chips on the market but I have found these keto chocolate chips to be reasonably priced and regularly available at my local store.
I always line my air fryer trays with a piece of parchment paper to keep the messes to a minimum and prevent sticking.
The next step is to heat the air fryer to 325 degrees and bake the cookies for about five minutes before rotating the trays.
This step is important when cooking multiple trays at a time.
The top trays will bake much faster than the bottom ones so switching them around is the only way to ensure all of the cookies are baked evenly.
After rotating the trays, bake for another five to seven minutes.

How to Store Air Fryer Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
While you don’t have to refrigerate the dough before baking it does help the process. When the dough is cold it tends to not spread as much as warm dough. If you want your cookie to be the perfect shape, refrigerating the dough before baking is a great way to do that.
I also like to refrigerate the dough and leave it for up to a week before baking. This way you can pull out as many or as little as you need to make some quick keto cookies. If you want to make a big batch to use for a month, store the dough in an airtight container and freeze. Allow the frozen dough to sit out at room temperature in order to thaw before baking.
Once the cookies are baked it is best to enjoy them within a week, I usually keep them in the refrigerator and serve them cold but they are delicious straight out of the air fryer for a warm gooey cookie!
