Crispy Baked Avocado Fries
Baked avocado fries are a fun snack with lots of crunch. Pair it with any dipping sauce and you have yourself quite the fun appetizer. Ready in under 30 minutes.
- 2 large avocados (California Avocados) Not overly ripe!
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice
- ⅓ cup almond flour
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 egg beaten
- ½ cup almonds or panko breadcrumbs
Step one. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice your slightly unripe avocado into even sliced slices. Lay flat on a plate and squeeze lime juice over the slices. This will prevent browning.
Step two. If using almond breadcrumbs, place almonds in a food processor and pulse until they are breadcrumb consistency. You can be the judge here and use whatever texture you prefer. Assemble 3 bowls. One with the egg beaten in it. One bowl with the flour and seasonings whisked together well. The third bowl will have your almond breadcrumbs or your panko breadcrumbs. Next line a cooking sheet with parchment paper and place your bowls in this order: Flour, egg mixture, breadcrumbs
Step three. Dunk your lemon juiced avocado slice into the almond flour/seasoning mix and coat it. Next dip it into the egg wash and end with rolling it into the breadcrumbs. Gently lay it on the cooking sheet and be careful not to overlap avocado slices. Bake for 15 minutes. Or airfry on 390 for 10 minutes
*Make sure your avocados aren't too ripe. They should still be firm and just barely soft to the touch for the perfect texture of fries.
*use regular flour if you have an almond allergy
*Panko breadcrumbs often have dairy in it so use homemade almond breadcrumbs in place if needed. Pulse them in a food processor until they are the consistency preferred.
