This post was originally published on June 17, 2018 and has been updated with fresh content, images and my new favourite Keto Avocado Fries recipe, using pork rinds instead of almond flour. *see note 2 in the recipe card if you wish to use almond flour instead.

I was extremely hesitant the very first time I tried avocado fries. My step daughter had made them for us so I felt obligated to eat them, even though avocados were not on the top of my favourite foods list. I couldn’t believe how delicious they were, I was so surprised! They were crunchy and creamy at the same time, without having too much avocado flavour!

When I first made these into a low carb version, I used almond flour, which I still love today, however, I find pork rinds crunchier and the flavour is tastier than the almond flour breading. Paired with chipotle mayo, these Keto Avocado Fries are the life of the party, or simply a delicious side dish for your Keto Burgers or Keto Quesadillas.

Why you’ll love ’em

  1. You’ll get crunchy and creamy with these delicious Keto Avocado Fries, as well as a ton of flavour with the breading and chipotle mayo.
  2. Ready in less than 20 minutes, this easy side dish is perfect for busy weeknights.
  3. Packed with healthy fats and coming in at only 3.1 g net carbs per 6 fries, these Keto Avocado Fries are an excellent healthy choice.

Ingredients

All ingredients used to make these Keto Avocado Fries with Chipotle Mayo.

Avocados – Look for avocados that are aren’t quite fully ripe. They should be slightly soft though should be firmer than you would normally use. Don’t worry, they will soften while they are in the oven!

Pork Rinds – I now use pork rinds instead of almond flour because it makes the fries crunchier and I prefer the flavour. Don’t want to use pork rinds? Simply swap out the 50g for 1/2 cup almond flour.

Parmesan – We use the shelf stable parmesan in a shaker container for these Keto Avocado Fries – it’s the best when it comes to breading!

Chipotle Sauce – My favourite brand of chipotle sauce is Cholula. I swear by the stuff! You can give it a try, or use your own favourite brand.

How to make Keto Avocado Fries

Heat the oven to 450° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non stick baking mat. Crush the pork rinds into a fine crumb by either wacking the bag with a rolling pin, or pulsing in a food processor.

In a medium bowl toss the crushed pork rinds with parmesan, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and pepper.

In another bowl whisk the egg with water until the egg is thoroughly combined with the water. Set the bowl on your work station next to the bowl of pork rinds and the prepared baking sheet.

Cutting board with prepared avocado, a bowl of egg wash and a bowl with the crushed pork rinds.

Cut open the avocados, carefully remove the pit and then peel away the peel. Slice each half into 6 strips so that you’ll get 6 fries from each half.

Using one hand only for the egg wash and the other hand only for the breading, dip a slice of avocado into the egg wash, then toss it into the pork rinds. Place it on the baking sheet and then repeat for all of the fries.

Double dip the Keto Avocado Fries in the egg mixture and then the pork rinds until all of the pork rinds have been used up. Bake in the preheated oven for 6 minutes, flip the fries and then bake for an additional 4-5 minutes, until the Keto Avocado Fries are golden brown.

Make the chipotle mayo while the fries are in the oven. Simply mix the mayo with the chipotle sauce and salt. Serve with the Keto Avocado Fries when they are freshly hot from the oven.

Expert Tips

  1. I now use pork rinds instead of almond flour because it makes the fries crunchier and I prefer the flavour. Don’t want to use pork rinds? Simply swap out the 50g for 1/2 cup almond flour.
  2. The pork rinds need to be finely crushed to work properly as breading for the fries. Wacking them with a rolling pin works fine but the extra step of using a food processor works the best, even if it means extra dishes!
  3. You have to be careful while removing the pit from an avocado – it’s easy to cut your hand! Slice the avocado open carefully, then hit the pit with a knife and twist to remove.
  4. Be sure to use one hand only for the egg wash and the other hand only for the breading. The pork rinds are unusable if they get too wet!

    This looks stunningly delicious. I’ve never made these made before. But I’d like to try making them with almond flour. Have you ever tried adding panko breadcrumbs with almond flour? I’ll definitely try it.

    I have had fried avocados before and they are so great! Great idea to swap out the bread crumbs for pork rinds or almond crumbs…I bet they make the outer coating extra crispy.

    I love avocado and have never tried it prepared this way. I can’t even remember the last time I had pork rinds….it be it has been 20+ years. I need to give this a try. I will put avocado on my shopping list.

    Such a unique recipe! I think I’ve tried all types of fries but not the avocado ones. Can’t wait to make a big batch of these now 🙂

    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 🙂

    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 🙂
