For the past two or three years, fried pickles have become a trendy appetizer for a variety of chain restaurants. However, when you’re trying to be healthy, these mouth-puckering delights are not always an option.
This is where low-carb recipes team up with the fat-blasting power of your very own air fryer.
So if you’re counting carbs but love fried finger foods from your local pub or bar & grill, these delicious low-carb fried pickles are a healthier choice without sacrificing the tastes you crave. Coated with gluten-free almond flour, salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning, these tiny morsels are packed with salty, sour, spice that will tempt you to have seconds.
The best part of all? This is a snack that won’t go straight to your mid-section.
- 1 jar of your favorite dill pickle chips (Claussen are my favorite)
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 1 Cup Almond Flour
- 1 tsp. cajun seasoning (or to taste)
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- In a small bowl, beat two eggs. Set aside.
- On a large plate, mix together almond flour and seasonings.
- Spray the basket of your air fryer with cooking spray (or mist with your favorite oil–avocado is my favorite)
- Dip the dill pickles in the egg wash, no more than 2 or 3 at a time.
- Immediately coat with flour mixture.
- Place in air fryer basket.
- Mist with cooking spray or your favorite oil.
- Cook at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes, turning once.
* If not counting your carbs, you can replace the almond flour with panko.
