Whip up these Low Carb Air Fryer Pickles in minutes. The perfect guiltless snack for any gathering.
I love, love making and eating Fried Pickles. They are the perfect snack for so many occasions. However, they can definitely be a high calorie and high carb snack that doesn’t always fit into your diet plan. By making these air fryer pickles, a low carb snack that also happens to be keto friendly, you can easily have a second helping. They are just as delicious as my Low Carb Bacon Cheeseburger Salad.
Can You Air Fry Fried Pickles
It sounds like a redundant question and it doesn’t mean you are going to deep fry and then air fry. And the answer is yes! The pickles are made just like you are preparing them to go into a vat of hot oil, however, you just add them to the basket of your air fryer and turn it on. It’s so easy and without the oil mess.
How Do You Make Air Fried Pickle Chips
Making air fryer pickles requires setting up a dipping station, just as if you were making chicken picatta.
Dip pickle chips in pork rinds, egg mixture, then in almond flour mixture, coating both sides and lightly pressing flour mixture into chips. You can spray the air fryer basket with cooking spray, I did not and it was fine. Place pickle chips in the air fryer basket in a single layer; spliting into batches. Air fry for 8-10 minutes.
As you dip the pickles, place them on a large tray covered in parchment paper.
Here they are in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
What Temperature Do You Air Fry Pickles At
I set my air fryer to 390 degrees F and I do not preheat it. The pickles are done and crispy in about 8-10 minutes. Keeping them in a single layer and working in batches is how you want to do it.
