  • 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 the air fryer basket with air fryer parchment paper. Scoop the cookie dough into balls (about 2 tablespoons) and place them in the basket 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.
  • Air fry for 6-8 minutes on 300 degrees.
  • Remove the air fryer basket and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes before removing them from the basket. 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.



  • You can pulse the oats in a food processor if you wish. I don't do this. I don't find the oats compromise the texture at all.
  • Salted or unsalted butter will work, your preference
  • You can omit the rolled oats, the cookies will have less texture.
  • These cookies are crafted intentionally with a lot of chocolate chips. Reduce the amount used to fit your needs if necessary.
  • You cannot substitute baking powder for baking soda.
  • You can omit the lemon juice, but the cookies will not be as soft and chewy.
  • You can use foil for these cookies, but I recommend air fryer parchment paper. I find the parchment paper circulates the heat better than foil. With foil, I found the bottom of the cookies browned a little faster, making it hard for the center to set.
  • For larger cookies you can use 3 tablespoons of dough.
  • The macros noted above assume zero-calorie monkfruit sweetener is used. If you use table sugar the macros are: Cals:349  Fat:23G Net Carbs:26G Protein: 4G
  • To bake the cookies, bake for 20-24 minutes on 300 degrees.
