  • Air Fryer


  • 12 ounces dill pickles about 4 medium-large pickles
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese See Notes
  • 1 teaspoon cajun seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • avocado oil spray


  • Cut the pickles in half lengthwise, then cut them again into quarters. Mix together the eggs and the heavy cream in a shallow dish. In a separate bowl, mix together the parmesan cheese, almond flour, and the seasoning.
  • Dip the pickle slices in the egg mixture, then into the almond flour mixture, making sure to coat each side well. Put the pickles on a tray or plate and freeze until the coating becomes solid, about 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes at 400º F. When it's heated, spray the air fryer baking sheet or basket with the oil so that the pickles won't stick. Arrange the pickles in a single layer in the air fryer. Spray them with some more oil. Cook for 10-12 minutes in the air fryer at 400º F. Flip them halfway through the cook time.


  • Keto: Make sure pickles are sugar free.
  • Parmesan: Can use any type of grated, including from a plastic shaker.
