I make the BEST COOKIES in my Emeril Power Airfryer 360

My cookies are usually a big fail, but not this time. Now I’ve heard the buzz about airfryers for a while, but in my head, I think I don’t have room for another kitchen appliance, so I wasn’t interested.

Oh my goodness what a fool I was- an airfryer was exactly what I needed.

Let me tell you, I’m not a baker.

I usually burn or undercook cookies. I’m a mom who hates to bake, well if we are putting it out there, I hate to cook. For example, tonight I ruined dinner so bad my husband had to get take out. Ugh- who does that!

My daughter wanted to bake cookies for this weeks after school treats. So I wanted to see if the airfyer would bake cookies and YES it does. WOOHOO!

I followed Emeril’s Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and I was shocked that the cookies turned out so good. In other words, they were crispy on the outside and soft inside. The cookies came out perfect, and my family was amazed; I made them. Who would have known that the Emeril Power Airfryer 360 would make me look like a pro at cookie making!

After making the cookies and how well they turned out I swear I’ve been using my the Power Airfryer 360 every day!

Here are a few items I’ve made since receiving the Emeril Lagasse Power Airfryer 360  (replaces nine appliances):

  • Cookies
  • Pizza
  • Baked Potatoes
  • Steak
  • Roasted Peppers
  • Taco Shells
  • Buttermilk Chicken
  • Toast/Bagels

Gluten-Free Cookies that Your Family will Gobble Up

The perfect cookie that is also an excellent source of protein with no guilt!

I have a HUGE sweet-tooth! Bring me all the cookies – I don’t discriminate on flavor. The problem is that my waist-line does not love cookies nor does my skin as I tend to have negative reactions to high gluten intake; I try to live Gluten-Free.

I tend to stay away from gluten-free desert options as they tend to be bland and have a weird texture. However, now that my daughter is showing signs of inheriting my Keratosis Pilaris, I have tried to incorporate more gluten-free options for snacks.

My daughter also loves sweets. She really enjoys any time that we get to spend together in the kitchen and I love that it pulls her away from electronics, even if just for a moment.

Meli’s Cookies pack tons of flavor into Gluten-Free and High Protein cookie mixes!

Can I tell you how much we LOVE their Original Monster Mix?! Can I had the actual number of cookies that I ate off the cookie sheet before they even had a chance to cool? It was an embarrassingly large number.

Meli’s Cookies are super easy to make, are pre-packaged for ease, and require very few ingredients. All dry mixes feature high quality ingredients and include gluten-free rolled oats.

gluten-free cookie mix

You will need: a box of Meli’s Cookie dry mix, 1/2 cup of your favorite nut butter, 1 egg, and 4 tablespoons of softened butter.

All ingredients will be added to a large mixing bowl and stirred until combined. Scoop onto a 2 inch ball and add to a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-8 minutes.

Then try not to burn yourself as you pry them from the pan before they are cool enough to eat.

Meli’s Cookies also feature Choco-Lot and Cashewlicious flavors which are both equally delicious. I can attest as these cookies did not last past the first day in my house.

Chocolate Chip Walnut Bars

This summer, I learned to balance my time between housework, blog, social media, and fitness. There were times when I recognized that my son needed to get out, we both did, so I would go for a walk. I made it an adventure for him. We walk by 3 playgrounds on our walk, depending on the distance. Many times, we only went by 2 playgrounds. Regardless, he’d play on each of them for about 5-10 minutes!  We usually went for a walk in the morning before it would get too hot and the playgrounds were empty!

Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins

When Fall rolls around, I am reminded of Pumpkin Spice everything. I’ve never had the fancy cup of Pumpkin Spiced latte from a coffee shop, although it sounds delicious! I’ve tried Pumpkin Spiced Coffee from Trader Joe’s and that was good! I used to buy it as often as I could. I love banana nut bread and muffins, so I thought to add a little twist with the Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins!

Pumpkin Spiced Banana Nut Muffins

My son and I love muffins. There are times when I buy them from the grocery store bakery!  While they are so delicious, they are costly! I used to buy so many that I’d save the plastic containers they come in to reuse to water my plants in. I have houseplants that need to be watered from the bottom, and the plastic containers are perfect for that.

We recently made a batch of Cherry Almond Muffins and they barely lasted a week!
