  • Salt: Adds some flavor!
  • Egg: Use a large egg. If you only want to make this without an egg, you can always replace the egg with an egg substitute.
  • Vanilla Extract: For the best flavor use pure vanilla extract.
  • All Purpose Flour; You can make this gluten-free, by using all-purpose gluten-free flour or almond flour l.
  • Baking Powder: Use fresh baking powder.
  • Chocolate Chips: Use regular or mini-sized.

Pro Tips For The Best Air Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie in A Cup

Do you love chocolate chip cookies? How about air-fried food? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then you’re going to love this recipe for the best air-fried chocolate chip cookie in a cup! Follow these pro tips to get it just right.

Butter: Use room temperature, butter for this recipe. I prefer unsalted butter, otherwise, you end up with salty cookies. If you only have salted butter, you can omit the salt.

Spray Your Ramekins: For an easy cookie that slides out, spray your ramekin with cooking spray. Or grease it with some melted butter.

Overmixing The Dough: For best results, do not overmix the dough, otherwise you end up with a tough cookie. Once, the ingredients are mixed, stop stirring.

Ramekins: I used 10-inch ramekins for this recipe, but you can use any that you have on hand. I listed some of my favorite ramekins for the air fryer below.

Timing: Since all air fryers are different, for best results, you need to watch your cookies as they cook up.
