The best air fryer Nutella cookies

I have never had anything Nutella that I don’t like, and that includes these delicious Air Fryer Nutella Cookies! 

This is such a simple recipe to make up and bake off in the air fryer. They will be a tasty chewy cookie, similar to that of a peanut butter cookie, but instead with the Nutella flavor. 

Not only are they completely amazing, but you probably have everything at home to make them (right now), especially if you love Nutella like I do. 

Did you know you could make desserts in the air fryer? Aka just another reason to love your air fryer.

 

Ingredients and Supplies You’ll Need to Make Air Fryer Nutella Cookies:

Ingredients:

  • All-purpose flour
  • Butter, room temp
  • Nutella
  • Brown sugar, lightly packed
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Egg large, room temp
  • Baking powder

Supplies

 

Why do ingredients need to be at room temperature?

One of the biggest reasons that the butter and eggs should be at room temperature is so that they blend together well with the other ingredients, producing a flavorful and chewy cookie. 

Plus if your butter is TOO soft (think melted) then the cookies will spread too much and either be too crispy or even burn.

What type of butter to use for Nutella cookies 

For this recipe, it would be great to use salted butter to balance out the sweetness of the cookie just a bit. 

However, if you do not have salted butter, you can use unsalted butter and they will turn out just fine. The most important part about the butter is the temperature and consistency to get the perfect cookie texture.

How to Make Air Fryer Nutella Cookies:

Step 1: Combine the dry ingredients

Begin by sifting the flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl then whisk to combine.

Step 2: Cream the wet ingredients

In another bowl cream together the butter and granulated sugar and brown sugar using a stand mixer or hand mixer in a large bowl.

Once the sugars are completely combined, add the Nutella and mix until it is completely incorporated.

Next up, mix in room temperature egg and the vanilla extract into the Nutella mixture until everything is well blended.

Add the flour mixture and beat everything until it is all incorporated.

 

Step 3: Shape the dough

After the cookie dough is made, roll the dough into one-inch balls and place it in a single layer in the air fryer basket. If you want,  you can use either parchment paper or silicone liner at the bottom of the air fryer basket to keep the cookies from sticking.

Then, flatten the cookies with a fork in a crisscross pattern.

Step 4: Bake the air fryer cookies

When the cookies are properly placed into the basket without overcrowding, bake the cookies at 320 degrees F or 160 degrees C for 7 minutes. 

Let the cookies sit in the warm air fryer basket for 5 or so minutes to finish setting before removing them.

Transfer the cookies to a cooling rack to complete the setting.

Continue these steps until the dough is gone, then serve and enjoy your air fryer dessert.
