These avocado fries are going to be your new favorite keto snack. They get so crispy thanks to my favorite keto friendly "breading!" This recipe is so easy to make with only 5 ingredients and a 10 minute cook time. You can have avocado fries anytime a craving hits.
The air fryer is by far my favorite appliance in my whole kitchen (except for my coffee maker, of course). I am pretty sure I use it more than my oven and stovetop combined.
CUTTING THE AVOCADO
First, make sure you have the right kind of avocado. They should be ripe but firm, not mushy.
Cut them in half and remove the pit.
Now instead of using a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh, I like to peel the skin off of the avocado.
This gives me prettier slices.
Now we just slice the avocado in ½ to 1 inch slices.
For this recipe I used crushed pork rinds. It is my favorite keto friendly breading! I simply dump a bag of pork rinds into my food processor for a few minutes and that's it. I used a cup of the crushed pork rinds for this recipe and I seasoned them with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder.
The other element to our breading station is 2 beaten eggs. Those get added to a shallow bowl.
Dip an avocado slice in the egg, followed by the pork rind crumbs and set aside on a plate.
PREPPING THE AIR FRYER
Just like the oven, we need to pre-heat the air fryer, especially when I am making something crispy. I pre-heat for 5 minutes at the temperature my recipe calls for.
After the it is pre-heated, you can spray it with cooking spray. Avoid spraying before, as the cooking spray will burn.
Now we can place the avocado fries in the basket. Depending on how many you are cooking and how large your air fryer is, you may need to cook these in batches.
These cook for 10 minutes and there is no need to flip them halfway through! How awesome is that!
These air fryer avocado fries are creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. You are going to have a hard time eating just one!
These would be perfect as a snack or as a salad topping!
