Crispy and Creamy Avocado Fries


post mar 26


For every 1 avocado, you’ll need:

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (2.5 ml)

1/4 teaspoon ground cumin (1.2 ml)

1/2 teaspoon chili powder (2.5 ml)

1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (30 g)

1/4 cup or so coconut flour (30 g)

1 egg, whisked

Coconut oil for frying




  1. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Slice the avocado into 8 wedges and remove the peel.
  2. Sprinkle the wedges with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, making sure to lightly coat all sides.
  3. In a food processor, blend the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, cumin and chili powder with the coconut flakes until the coconut flakes are finely chopped.
  4. Near the stove set up an assembly line of 3 bowls, 1 for egg, 1 for coconut flour and 1 for the coconut flakes.
  5. Coat each wedge of avocado in egg, coconut flour, back into the egg and then coconut flakes.
  6. Heat a thin layer of coconut oil in a deep pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the coconut wedges.
  7. Fry for about 1 minute or less on the first side, or until nicely browned.
  8. Use a fork (or the combination of a fork and spoon) to turn the wedges as they brown until all sides are crispy. If the oil starts to smoke, turn down the heat.
  9. Serve avocado fries immediately with hot sauce or mayo spiked with hot sauce.
