Directions

In a small bowl, mix together the tapioca starch and spices. In another bowl add half of this mixture along with the almond flour. In a third bowl, whisk together the eggs.

Dry the pickle well with a towel to remove excess moisture. Spray your air fryer basket with avocado oil.

Toss the pickles in a mixture of tapioca starch. Use a fork at a time. Dip each pickle into the beaten egg, then dredge the piece into the almond flour mixture. Put the pickled bread in the basket.

Set the basket in an air fryer at 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius) for about 10 minutes or until golden brown outside. If needed, air fry for another 1 to 2 minutes to get a nice golden brown exterior. Allow them to cool slightly before removing them from the basket.
