How do you make Gluten-Free Air Fried Oreos?
If you need this recipe to be gluten-free, then use Gluten-Free Oreos or Gluten-Free Chocolate Cream Filled Cookies. These are both easily found at local grocery stores.
Along with the Oreos, use gluten-free homemade pancake mix. It comes out with the perfect amount. As always, you can buy store-bought pancake mix as well, but this homemade pancake mix recipe is very easy too.
Tips for Making Air-Fried Oreos:
These tasty treats can be made by following these simple steps with basic ingredients.
It’s best to either use parchment paper or a cooking spray like Grapeseed Oil Spray to coat the air fryer basket. This will help the batter not stick to the bottom of the basket.
When dipping the Oreos in the pancake batter, be sure to fully coat the Oreos. It will take some hands-on work to get them fully coated and it is a messy batter, so keep this in mind as you try to coat the cookie.
Place the battered Oreos in the basket of the air fryer in a single layer, be sure to give them plenty of space for the hot air to circulate and the batter to rise a bit.
These tasty snacks will be air-fried at 360 degrees F for 6 minutes. For best results, be sure to check on them after 2-3 minutes. We did not find it necessary to flip the Oreos, but if you prefer you can carefully flip them over halfway through the cooking time.
When the wrapped Oreos come out of the air fryer, I suggest giving them a generous sprinkle of powdered sugar before serving them. During the holidays, they can even be sprinkled with some colored sugar.
These may need to be cooked in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
