I’m gonna’ say it and hopefully I don’t jinx it. . .spring has officially sprung! Plants are slowly popping up, the grass is getting greener and every weekend now our little community here in Wisconsin is buzzing with all sorts of events and gatherings.
As the weather warms up and the days get longer, one of the things I look forward to are our local carnivals and fairs around the area. Some of my favorite fair food “eats” are cheese curds, elephant ears, and deep fried Oreos.
Well, today, we’re making a “little” (notice I say little) healthier version of the deep fried Oreos. Air fryer Oreos are made without grease or oil and they’re a treat the entire family will enjoy!
Making Air Fryer Oreos
When making your Oreos, you’ll want to dunk the cookie in milk first to soften the Oreo up a little before wrapping it in the Crescent roll section.
Make sure all seams in the dough are sealed completely.
Now, when I say these “deep fried” Oreos are made without grease or oil, that’s mostly true. The only oil you’ll need is a spritz or two just to grease your air fryer basket.
I like to fry four at a time so I’m not crowding the basket. After only 4 minutes of air frying, these Oreos are ready and they’re the most beautiful golden brown.
Sprinkle them with powdered sugar and then call the family into the kitchen to indulge!
It’s really love at first bite. I mean, if I’m going to fry a cookie, it’s always going to be an Oreo.
I chose the classic Oreo, but you could easily substitute ANY flavor of Oreo you would like.
I mean, you could do:
Or how about the Game of Thrones Oreos?! Am I the only person on Earth that hasn’t watched a single episode yet?
My point is, you can be creative with these air fryer Oreos. As long as Oreos are around (and they will be for a VERY long time) the flavor options are pretty much endless.
I can’t wait for you to try this easy, 4-ingredient, treat in your air fryer!
