Almond Crusted Avocado Fries – Crunchy and Creamy

Almond Crusted Avocado Fries – Crunchy and Creamy

Almond crusted avocado fries.

Almond crusted avocado fries are a great low carb appetizer. They are crunchy on the outside and rich and creamy on the inside and taste great served warm with your favorite dip!

I feel like I’ve been seeing avocado fries everywhere lately and I really wanted to try them. Of course they were all breaded with flour and breadcrumbs, and that’s a big no-no. So I became determined to find a way to make them while watching the carb intake. Almonds were an easy answer, because you really don’t need much to make it crispy and crunchy. Plus, almond crusted avocado fries are delicious.

I find avocados really filling. In fact, whenever I feel like I might go off track on my diet, I eat half of an avocado and I’m full enough to get past the cravings.

The kitchen supplies needed for this recipe are a baking sheet, Silpat or parchment paper, and a mini food processor or blender to grind the almonds.

Making these avocado fries is a messy endeavor. I did end up with more of the almond flour and the egg on my fingers than actually on the avocado.  I set up a mini assembly line to dip the avocado into the almond flour, then the egg, then the ground almond and seasoning mixture. It went well, but my fingers were coated!

Speaking of almond flour… I found some at Costco that I really like although I’m a little nervous that it is such a large bag. I sealed it well and stuck it in the freezer. Is that the proper storage for almond flour? I’d love some input!

Almond Crusted Avocado Fries

Yield: 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 avocados, medium, ripe
  • 2 eggs, beaten with fork
  • 1/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup raw almonds, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

Preheat oven to 420F.

Break eggs into a small bowl and beat with a fork until well mixed. If you don't already have ground almonds, grind with a blender or food processor until it resembles crumbs. Put the ground almonds in a small bowl and add garlic powder, onion powder and salt and stir together well. Create an assembly line with a bowl of almond flour, the bowl of eggs and the bowl of ground almonds. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or with a Silpat.

Slice avocados in half, remove the pit. Slice each half lengthwise, four or five times, to make "fries." Dip avocado fry in almond flour, then the egg, then sprinkle both sides with the ground almond mixture.

Bake for 18-20 minutes. Serve warm with homemade ranch or dip of choice.
