Ingredients You'll Need for Air Fryer Oreo Cookies

One of the great things about this air fryer Oreos recipe is its simplicity. You'll need just a handful of common ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your kitchen.

Here's what you'll need:

  • ⅓ cup of milk

  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (you can also use melted coconut oil or avocado oil)

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • 1 cup of pancake mix

  • Cooking spray

  • 12 Oreos (or any cream-filled sandwich cookies)

  • Powdered sugar

Step-by-Step Instructions

Step 1: Making the Batter

  1. Start by preheating your air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190°C).

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the milk, vegetable oil, egg, and vanilla extract. Whisk them together until well combined.

  3. Gradually add the cup of pancake mix to the mixture and continue whisking until you have a thick and smooth batter. This should take around 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Step 2: Coating the Oreos

  1. Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper and lightly coat it with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

  2. Using a fork, dip each Oreo into the batter, making sure it's fully coated on both sides.

  3. Place the coated Oreos directly onto the parchment paper in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches. Ensure there's at least 1 ½ inches of space between each Oreo, as they will expand while cooking.

Step 3: Air Frying the Oreos

  1. Once your air fryer basket is filled, cook the Oreos in the preheated air fryer for approximately 4-5 minutes or until they turn golden brown on top.

  2. Flip the Oreos and continue air frying for an additional 2 minutes to ensure they're evenly cooked and crispy.

  3. Remove the air fried Oreos from the air fryer, transfer them to a plate, and generously dust them with powdered sugar to your liking. You can also flip them over and coat both sides with powdered sugar for an extra sweet touch.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Put Oreos in the Air Fryer?

Absolutely! Air frying Oreos is an excellent alternative to deep-frying, offering the same delightful results. The pancake batter coating becomes slightly crispy on the outside while remaining fluffy inside, delivering a mouthwatering experience.

Are Fried Oreos Healthy?

While fried Oreos aren't considered a healthy snack, air frying them is a healthier cooking method compared to deep-frying in excessive oil. The air fryer replicates the frying process closely, eliminating the need for deep frying.

How Long Do Fried Oreos Last?

If you happen to have any leftover air fried Oreos, they can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They maintain their taste and texture quite well over time. For the best experience, reheat them before serving.

How Do You Reheat Air Fried Oreos?

To reheat air fried Oreos, you can use the air fryer itself. Simply spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray, preheat it to 375°F (190°C), and warm the Oreos for 2-4 minutes or until they reach your desired temperature. Alternatively, you can briefly microwave them for a few seconds to heat them up. After reheating, don't forget to add a bit more powdered sugar for that extra sweetness!
