  1. Tried these today, although my mixture was a tad bit thin, the taste was amazing. I made a batch in airfryer and then on appe pan, both turned out to be awesome. Thank you for the recipe, you have made a huge difference to my perspective on Black Eyed Peas 🙂 Would have loved to add a picture but the site doesn’t allow, I’ll include it on a Pintrest pin with a link to your recipe5 stars
