You can easily make vegan Air Fryer chocolate chip cookies if you swap out the dairy and eggs for plant-based alternatives!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

To make vegan air fryer chocolate chip cookies, you will need to replace the eggs and dairy products with plant-based substitutes.

You can use an egg replacer from the store, or you can make your own! Combine 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce, along with 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder to equal 1 “egg”.  This is my go-to “egg” for almost all of my baking!

Replace the butter with a plant-based butter, and use vegan chocolate chips (like Enjoy Life brand).
