How to make cookies without parchment paper in airfryer
Sift all dry ingredients
Add 4 tbsp of solid butter. Start rubbing the fat into the flour with your hands. it may take 1-2 minutes or more. But this step is important.
Let's sift the flour-butter mixture. This sifted flour is your digestives premix. Store in a ziplock or airtight container in the freezer. Thaw and use whenever you are craving healthy digestives.
Next add water or milk 1 tbsp at a time. I required 3 tbsp to make a soft dough.
Do not knead. Preheat the airfryer to 160 degree celsius for 5 minutes.
Roll out the oats digestives dough into a thick chapati (1/4th inch in thickness).
Cut shapes and make insertions with a fork.
Place on a baking tray. I use my stainless steel basket to bake in airfryer.
Bake for 15 minutes at 160 degree c.
Check, if done. Else, bake for 2 minutes more. For oven, otg, or convection, oats digestives will take longer.
Let the healthy cookies cool down before enjoying one with a hot cuppa.
The hint of chocolate makes these digestives even tastier. Do try out the cookies recipe and share your feedback.
