  • 16 ounces dill pickles I like bubbies
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper more or less to taste
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste (see note)
  • Avocado Oil for brushing or frying
  • Keto Ranch Dressing for dipping


  • Cut the pickles in half lengthwise, and then cut into quarters.
  • Combine the eggs and heavy cream in a shallow dish.
  • In a separate dish, combine the almond flour, Parmesan cheese, cajun seasoning, cayenne pepper, and salt and pepper.
  • Dip the pickle slices in the eggs, and then coat with the almond flour mixture.
  • Freeze for 10 minutes.

Air Fryer Instructions

  • Heat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • Spray the pickles with oil and cook for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Oven Instructions

  • Preheat an oven to 425 degrees.
  • Spray the pickles with oil and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Stove Top Instructions

  • Heat oil in a large skillet to about a 1-inch depth. Fry until golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes.


Note: Be careful of over-salting! Pickles are already salty on their own.
