  1. Every model of air fryer is different, so you may have to adjust the cooking time slightly. 
  2. If you use a basket style air fryer you will need to flip the patties half way through to ensure they cook evenly.
  3. Instead of almond flour you can use bread crumbs or crushed crackers instead.
