  1. These were so easy and delicious. I was able to freeze them and take them out as I needed to make them.

  2. What should the texture be? they seem uncooked even after 3x longer than recommended. Super crispy on the outside but batter like on inside. I used GF flour. I made them very very thin, and they still turned out mushy inside. 

  3. Hi. These were absolutely delicious. I had to omit the onions became my husband can’t eat them. I instead grated 3 cloves of garlic, added a little salt and some baking powder. The turned out very light and fluffy. I didn’t over mix them. It was like the texture of zucchini muffins batter. Fried them with vegetable and grape seed oil.

  4. Oh my word…..these are delicious and very easy   .  They freeze well also. For a change up I tried garlic instead of onion and just as delicious! 

  5. Could you put these in the oven?

  6. Can these be baked in an air fryer instead? If so, what would you recommend? 
    They look amazing!!!
