Air Fryer Pickles

This is one of my favorite recipes! Fried Pickles yum! You can use pickle spears or slices, just make sure you dry your pickles well. That is key. Don’t have a an Air Fryer? not to worry you can make these in the oven and they turn out just as good, they just take a little longer.

Servings 2


  • ½ cup aquafaba
  • ¾ cup panko, breadcrumbs, cornflakes
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • tsp cayenne
  • 1 ½ tbsp nutritional yeast
  • pinch salt


  • Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees F or oven to 400 degree F.
  • Dry pickle spears or slices on power towel to remove as much moisture as possible.
  • In a shallow dish, combine the panko and the spices and mix well.
  • In a separate container, whip the aquafaba until almost soft peaks but stiff enough to adhere to the pickles.
  • Dip the pickle into the aquafaba to coat and then into the dry mixture. Keep one hand for wet and one hand for dry to make it easier.
  • Once the Air fryer is preheated for 2 minutes, add the pickles and cook until golden brown which is usually about 7 minutes, but check after about 5 minutes and give them a shake. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until brown. Serve with vegan ranch dip
