In a world where everything is fried, from butter to snickers to cauliflower, why wouldn’t we fry avocados?

Well, this just in. I’m sharing my go-to method for crispy BAKED avocado “fries,” which I assure you is much healthier than the deep fried alternative.

These crispy baked avocado fries are not only a super cinch to prepare, but they make for amazing finger food for when you’re hosting a party. Or simply a healthy, fun snack to whip up for your offspring for after school eats.

They’re grain-free, paleo, keto, whole30, and so fun and easy to make.

So let’s get started!

How to Make Crispy Baked Avocado Fries:

Start with avocados that are just barely ripe, so they are still firm. Halve the avocados with a sharp knife and remove the pits.

Cut thick slices. I like halving the slices so that they are easier to dip, but you can keep the slices long if you’d like.

Remove the slices from the outer peel and place on a plate.

Mix together the flour mixture, and whisk the egg with a couple tablespoons of oil.

Dredge each slice in the egg mixture, followed by the flour mixture.

Place each slice on a parchment lined baking sheet. On your marks, get set, BAKE!

Once the avocado slices have reached your desired level of crisp, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool. They will crisp up even more as they cool!

    These are really good! Great recipe! I did take half of the recipe and change it up a little. I put the wet mix with the dry mix in a blender with the avocado and some parmesan. I then made little pancakes out of the mixture.

    These look wonderful. Cooking avocados has never even occurred to me. I’m wondering if these keep well in the fridge. I saw that these are an ingredient in your breakfast tacos but I know I don’t have time to fix these before I leave for work. If I do them the night before, will they be ok?

      I was actually wondering the same thing. Made too many of them last night. I put the leftover in a plastic container and pulled them out today for reheat. I stuck them in an AirFryer for 10 to 15 min at 400F. They freshened up very nicely.

      Hi there! They do keep well in the fridge! Something about the baking process helps keep the avocados fresh (they don’t turn brown)…it’s like pure magic! I reheat them in a skillet on the stove top, but Brian’s suggestion using an air fryer is awesome, too! You can also reheat them in the oven (I’d just avoid the microwave 😉 ) Hope you enjoy! xo
