      1. I’m sorry I just updated the recipe to include this information. 1/2 cup of flour and 1/2 teaspoon of each spice – mix together.

    1. Hi AnnieMae, I have never baked them before but I am guessing you can. I would place them on a non-stick foil-lined cookie sheet. I would suggest 350 degrees for the temperature for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them in the oven after 7 minutes and judge the time needed until golden brown. They may need to be in the oven for longer than 10 minutes but I am not sure. Just make sure they don’t burn.

  1. The Jalapeno Bites look so yummy. I want to take them to a party, but would have to make them ahead of time. Can these be frozen ?

    1. I don’t see any reason why they could not be made ahead of time and kept in the refrigerator for a day or so. I would think they could be frozen as well but I am not sure how much time you would need to cook them. Possibly let them defrost sitting on the counter for a while before placing in the air fryer.
