These Oatmeal Almond Chocolate Chip Muffins are made in the Air Fryer!

Since I didn’t want to make a huge mess the first time I tried baking I knew I wanted to either do muffins or cupcakes.  I figured the cupcake liners would contain the batter so that even if they didn’t cook correctly it wouldn’t be a mess.  I had no idea how they were going to turn out so I thought a sturdier cupcake would work best.

It's easy to make Air Fryer Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins!

I made these tasty Air Fryer Almond Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins as part of Back to School Treats Week because as a teacher and a mom I sometimes need to grab something for breakfast in a hurry when I’m on my way out the door. Muffins and granola bars are my top pick for this because they are easy to eat on the run and I can load them up with oats, fruit, or nuts so I feel good about them as well.

Yes you CAN make muffins in the Air Fryer!

I made a basic muffin batter as the base of my muffins.  Instead of using vanilla to flavor them I used Taylor & Colledge Almond Paste.  I like using almond paste because you get a lot more flavor with a smaller amount.  Then I added in rolled oat to give my muffins some substance and texture. I finished them off with a half cup of chocolate chips.  I used semi-sweet but I think bittersweet or even dark chocolate chips would be good in this recipe.

I was able to fit 9 muffins in the Air Fryer.  After about 10 minutes I checked on them and was happy to see that they were cooking and browning just fine!  At the end of the cooking time they were golden brown and cooked through.  The only thing that wasn’t great is that they had some odd shapes but I didn’t care as I was only making these for our breakfast or lunches.

The muffins were really tasty.  They were cooked well and had a light almond flavor with hints of oats and chocolate.  These are perfect for mornings on the go, a lunchbox snack, or even as an after school treat.
