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!

Ingredients

  • 2 firm avocados not quite ripe

Egg Wash

  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp water

Breading

  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 1 tsp cajun seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

Chipotle Mayo

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp chipotle hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Instructions

Equipment Needed

  • Cutting Board and Knife
  • Baking Sheet with Non Stick Baking Mat
  • Small Bowl

Directions

  • Heat oven to 450°. Line a baking sheet with a baking mat or parchment paper. Mix egg and water in a bowl and set aside. Mix the breading in another bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the avocados in half lengthwise and carefully remove the pit. Peel the skin away from the avocado and have each half lay cut side down on the cutting board. Slice lengthwise to form 6 fries from each avocado half. 
  • With one hand dip a fry into the egg wash and toss into the breading dish. Use the other hand to roll the fry in the breading and place on the baking sheet. Repeat until all the avocado fries have been breaded. 
  • Bake for 7 minutes, flip each fry over, then bake for an addition 5 minutes, or until the right level of toasty has been achieved. Mix the chipotle mayo ingredients together, dip and enjoy!

  1. I absolutely LOVE avocado (who doesn’t, right?!), but I’ve never had in ‘fry’ form before! These look so good and perfect for weekend eats 🙂


  2. These were good but we only had 2 of us and got 6 cuts per half an avacado. Each ate 12 so it was all my carbs for day. Don’t see how anyone can just eat like 3 to fit in macros.

    • Hey Margaret thanks for the comment! I had the full carbs including fibre calculated on this recipe, which I have adjusted. Each half an avocado is 4g of net carbs. Adding the other ingredients and each half an avocado (or 6 slices) would be 5.5g of net carbs. IF you have only two people, you can cut the recipe in half and just make one avocado 🙂
