Air-Fryer Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Tahini Cookies

We put a twist on a classic oatmeal-raisin cookie with the addition of tahini and walnuts. Tahini adds a hint of salty, nutty flavor, while toasted walnuts bring a satisfying crunch.

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • ¼ cup whole-wheat pastry flour

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ cup tahini

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • cup granulated sugar

  • cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • ½ cup raisins

  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts, toasted (see Tip)


  1. Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the basket of an air fryer.

  2. Whisk oats, pastry flour, all-purpose flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. Beat tahini and butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer until blended into a paste. Beat in granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla. Stir in the oat mixture until just moistened. Stir in raisins and walnuts.

  3. Drop 4 to 6 dough balls, about 1 rounded tablespoon each, 2 inches apart on the prepared parchment. Using damp hands, flatten each dough ball slightly.

  4. Carefully transfer the parchment with the dough balls to the air-fryer basket. Cook at 360℉ until golden, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove with a wide spatula to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining dough.

For the best flavor, toast nuts before using in a recipe. To toast chopped nuts, place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 2 to 4 minutes.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
