1 and a half cups of dill pickle slices.
1 large egg.
Half a cup of almond flour.
Half a cup of grated Parmesan cheese (refer to note).
Half a teaspoon of garlic powder.
Half a teaspoon of onion powder.
Half a teaspoon of salt.
Avocado oil spray.
After draining the pickles, carefully use a paper towel to pat them dry, ensuring to remove as much moisture as possible.
In a shallow bowl, add the egg and whisk it vigorously until smooth and well combined.
Blend the almond flour, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt, in another shallow bowl, then stir the components collectively till nicely combined.
Take each pickle slice and dip it into the beaten egg, making sure it is fully coated. Then, transfer the pickle slice to the bowl with the almond flour mixture. Press the flour mixture onto the pickle slice, ensuring it adheres well and covers the surface. Repeat this process for all the pickle slices.
Grease the air fryer basket and place the breaded pickles in a single layer. Spritz with oil spray if needed.
Set the air fryer temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and cook the pickles for approximately 10 minutes, or until they turn crispy and achieve a golden-brown color.
For batches, keep the first batch of cooked pickles uncovered on a plate while making the second batch. Reheat the first batch in the air fryer for 1 minute before serving.
