Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries
  • Sharebar

I love avocados. I’ve always been a huge guacamole fan and I recently made a really delicious green chicken salad with avocado. I also just like to eat them plain, with a spoon, straight out of their skins. Well, why not make them into fries? I love sweet potato fries, so I was pretty sure I would also love avocado fries.

We served these up with Nom Nom Paleo’s sriracha sauce. I didn’t have the red jalapeno peppers that the recipe called for, so I subbed in 4 red Thai chilies and one whole red bell pepper instead, and it worked perfectly (I also halved the rest of the ingredients). The sauce is so dang good I’ve been eating it on everything.

Avocado Fries

Ingredients

  • 1 firm avocado
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 Tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour, divided
  • 3 Tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt

What to do

  1. In bowl #1, mix together the arrowroot flour and 1 Tablespoon of coconut flour.
  2. In bowl #2, beat one egg.
  3. In bowl #3, mix 1 Tablespoon of coconut flour, 3 Tablespoons of almond flour and 1 teaspoon of salt.

    Three step dipping

  4. Slice your avocado into wedges. I did this with the skin still on and then removed the skin after it was in wedges and ready to be dipped.

  5. Dip each slice of avocado in bowl #1, then bowl #2 and finally in bowl #3.
  6. Place each coated slice onto a parchment lined baking sheet.

    Ready for the oven

  7. Spray with oil (I use an oil mister) and sprinkle with a little bit of salt.

  8. Bake for 20 minutes in a 200 C (400 F) oven.

  1. Yum! Great looking recipe!

    • Thanks Christina :-)

  2. This sound amazingley delicious! I love avocados, normally i eat them with the spoon straight out of their skins or on salad!
    Gone try this in the weekend for breakfast or as side dish at lunch!

    P.S I finally make Kombucha tee. I just finshed putting it to the second fermentation in ginger, splash of fresh lemon and orange juice!
    Thanks you very much, u gave me the motivation to try it!

    • Wow!! Congratulations on the kombucha! We’ve got 3 big brewing jars going all the time now. The avocado fries were pretty good, but they really need a dipping sauce of some sort. You can “flour” them in whatever you have on hand and don’t really need to follow how I did it.

  3. I make the avocado fries today for lunch, i made it with coconut floor and grated parmasan cheese, it was amazingly delicious!
    I also made Nom Nom’s Sriracha sauce, like you with chilies & red bell pepper, this sauce is wonderfully delicious!
    Thanks for sharing!

    • Ooh…Parmesan cheese would be really good!

  4. May I ask where do you buy arrowroot powder? Reformhaus? Vitality shops? These look amazing! (and in CH it’s easier to buy a firm avocado than a really ripe one, so this shouldn’t be a problem :D )

    • Hi Magda,
      Yes, you can find it at a Reformhaus or a bio laden. You can also use tapioka powder or a mix of the two (my bio laden in Uster sells a mixture). These were tasty, but a little bland unless you have a dipping sauce.
