Chocolate Chip and Walnut Cookies

This post is sponsored by Hiland Dairy but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

2020 has been a very challenging year, but it has really highlighted how much I really need to take a step back and cherish the time I have to create more memories with my family. 

I’m totally not a huge baker, but this time has really shaken that up! I have been baking and it’s been so much fun! All of the extra time I have had at home has provided amazing opportunities to create memories with my family. I have really had to slow down and focus on what’s important.

ingredients for air fryer chocolate chip cookies

I used Hiland butter in the recipe and I’m a huge fan of their almond milk for cookie dunking! Hiland products are loaded with added nutrients and protein.

Why Lemon Juice and Baking Soda Are Used

When combining lemon juice and baking soda, it creates a chemical reaction that will add a puff to the cookies and make them softer and chewier as they cool. The cookies will not taste like lemon at all.

You cannot substitute baking powder for baking soda. You can omit the lemon juice, but the cookies will not be as soft and chewy.

Room Temperature Eggs

You will need to use room temperature eggs in this recipe. Room temperature eggs will mix better in the batter. You can read more about Why to Use Room Temperature Eggs While Baking here.

Freezer Tips

You can freeze the cookies after baking and you can also freeze the dough. Defrost the dough in the refrigerator prior to air frying.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in a mixing bowl using a stand or hand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  • Add egg, vanilla, and lemon juice. Use the mixer and blend on low for 30 seconds. And then blend on medium for a couple of minutes or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.
  • With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don’t overmix.
  • Fold in chocolate chips and walnuts.
  • Line a cooke sheet with a silicone baking mat. Scoop the cookie dough into balls (about 2 tablespoons) and place them on the cookie sheet about 1 1/2 to 2 inches apart. Use wet hands and flatten the top of the cookies. The batter is really sticky. Wet hands work well while handling it.
  • Bake for 13-17 minutes.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the sheet. If you handle them too soon they will not firm up and will crumble.
  • Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt if you wish.

These were so fun to make, and they were delicious!!! I added a little bit of coconut shred too, and I split the sugar half “real” and half “alternative” and nobody even noticed. Great job on these!
