Oh my goodness, the excitement I have over this recipe is a bit ridiculous. I looooove avocado fries! The problem is that generally they are made by rolling avocado slices in panko breadcrumbs, which of course would not be low carb. So rather than nix it from the list, I decided to test them out with the breading I created for my Low Carb Chipotle Chicken Burgers… GENIUS. It’s a mixture of almond flour, parmesan cheese, garlic, cajun seasoning, salt and pepper! I love this breading! It crisps up beautifully when baked in the oven which of course is the reason for living, is it not?
Dipping sauce for avocado fries
CHIPOTLE MAYO!!! You absolutely MUST dip avocado fries in chipotle mayo!!! I suppose that’s just my opinion, others may choose ranch, ketchup or even a bacon cheese sauce?? Hmmm now the wheels are turning… bacon cheddar sauce would be pretty good as well… but chipotle mayo is super quick and easy! Just mix mayonnaise, chipotle hot sauce and BAM! Chipotle mayo in a bowl, all ready for your dipping pleasure.
How to make avocado fries
Creating avocado fries are pretty easy! Start with avocados that aren’t quite ripe. If they are too soft they won’t hold their shape. Don’t worry about eating unripe avocados, they majorly soften up while in the oven! They will be like butter on the inside and Oh-so-crispy after baking 🙂
Cut the avocados in half, remove the pit (carefully) then peel off the skin. Slice the avocados lengthwise so that they are French fry shaped! (somewhat)
With one hand, dip a slice into the egg wash and toss into the breadcrumb bowl without touching the breadcrumbs. With the other hand, roll it in the breadcrumbs and then place on a baking sheet with a non stick baking mat. Almond flour tends to clump up pretty bad if you get it wet, this is why using separate hands for the egg wash and breadcrumbs is a good idea.
Bake at 450° for 7 minutes, flip the avocado fries over and bake for an addition 5 minutes, or until they are as toasty as you like! Dip those beauties into that delicious chipotle mayo you whipped up and indulge in this epic low carb snack!
