Gluten-Free/Paleo Avocado Fries

Avocado Fries 3

I am personally not Gluten-Free or on the Paleo diet but I thought I would provide this version of the recipe for all of those who are :)

Avocado Fries

3 Avocados

Coconut Oil for frying 

1 bag of Almond Meal/Flour

3 Eggs, beaten

1 cup Unsweetened Coconut Flakes

Salt to taste

Set up two separate bowls. One with almond/coconut mixture/salt to taste - don't be shy (I don't give amounts because you just need enough mixture to cover all of the avocado slices) and one with your 3 beaten eggs.

Cut the avocados in half and then slice them vertically into 4 inch by 1 inch wedges. Set them aside.

Heat the coconut oil in a frying pan, be sure to add enough so that it is 3 to 4 inches deep.

Drop each avocado piece in first your egg mixture and next in your almond/coconut mixture. Place them in the hot oil and fry them for only about 15-30 seconds per side (keep a keen eye on them - they tend to brown very quickly depending on how hot your pan is).

Remove the avocado fries from your pan with tongs and set them on a plate preferably lined with paper towels, to absorb the excess oil. Enjoy and serve with your favorite dipping sauce!!

  1. I'm originally from Washington state and had a hard time unsweetened coconut is hard to find out there. I was super stoked to find some at Fresh Market when I first moved to Virginia. If there are any readers who are searching for some with no such luck or access Fresh Market, you can now order smaller quantities from Amazon!

  2. What?!?! This is insane! Definitely trying this one! #ChristianDominguez
