Baked Pickles

Nutritionist-approved frickles (AKA fried pickles)?! Well, these are baked, so we call them “bickles.”

Fried pickles are really great for your taste buds, but the breading and frying they require make them not so great for your body.

Instead of breadcrumbs, we coat the hydrating, fiber-filled cukes with almond flour and add antioxidant-rich spices like cayenne pepper; then we bake ’em.

The result is a crunchy, salty, satisfying snack.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Cucumbers are hydrating and filled with fiber and vitamins, and when they’re pickled, they’re crunchy, salty, and virtually calorie-free. Some pickles are also fermented, which means major gut health benefits. Coated in almond flour and baked like this, they totally satisfy our frickle craving.
