A gluten-free diet can provide many health benefits, especially for people with celiac disease. It may help ease digestive symptoms, reduce chronic inflammation, boost energy and promote weight loss.
If you want to learn more about the benefits of eating Gluten Free I recommend reading the Wheat Belly Book.

Can you put Aluminum Foil in an Air Fryer?
Yes you can..I do it all the time. Just make sure if you are using it on the bottom of the air fryer as a little tray for something that you do not cover the entire surface of the air fryer basket. You have to leave room for the air to circulate.
This Air Fryer Recipe requires you to cover the cake pan with aluminum foil and bake for 30 minutes which works perfect.
1: Preheat your Air Fryer to 360 Degrees F for 5 Minutes.
2: Prepare your Cake Pan by Spritzing it with Cooking Spray. If you don't have a Springform Pan in addition to the Spray you can cut 2 strips of parchment paper and form an X in the pan so that the cake will be easy to remove after the baking is completed.
4: In a Medium Microwave Safe Bowl, Heat the Butter until melted, about 25-45 seconds. Add the Chocolate Chips to the melted butter and whisk until smooth - you can put back in the microwave for another 30 seconds if they are not hot enough to melt. Let cool for 5 minutes.
5: Now whisk the eggs into the butter and chocolate mixture until well incorporated.
6: Add the dry ingredients that you had set aside with your Butter, Chocolate and Egg mixture and mix them all together until completely combined.
7: Pour the cake batter into your cake pan and cover with aluminum foil.
8: Cook for 30 Minutes.
9: Carefully remove the foil and insert a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean your cake is done if not put it back in the Air Fryer for another 5 minute increments and keep checking.
10: Once your cake is done cooking remove it from the Air Fryer Basket and allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the pan.
11: Once cool release the lever on the Springform pan and it should come right out. If you are using the parchment paper system just grab 2 sides of the parchment paper flaps and lift cake out.
12: Now you are ready to Ice your cake with some whipped cream, Sugar Free Jello Pudding or just Fresh Fruit.
13: If you want to really indulge you can make an easy Chocolate Glaze by melting 3 Tablespoons of Butter and ¼ Cup of Chocolate Chips - just microwave them together for 25-45 seconds, whisk and then drizzle or spread over your cake.
