Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • cup almond flour
  • cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Sauce

  • cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions

  • Cut the avocado into ½-inch thick wedges. Combine the almond flour, parmesan cheese, and garlic powder in a shallow bowl.
  • Beat the eggs and lemon juice together in another shallow bowl. Carefully dip the avocado slices in the eggs and then dredge in the almond flour mixture. Press the coating into the sides of the avocado to help it stick.

Air Fryer

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Spray the air fryer and coated avocado with cooking spray. Place in the air fryer and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, flipping halfway through.

Oven

  • Preheat the oven to 425 ° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Transfer to the coated avocado to the prepared baking sheet. Spray the avocado slices with cooking spray. Place the baking sheet in the oven and cook for 16 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.

Sauce

  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, Sriracha, and garlic powder. Refrigerate until ready to use

Notes

  • Avoid overly ripe avocado - whether you are baking, air frying, or decide to try this recipe deep-fried, ripe avocados will fall apart.
  • I recommend the smaller Hass avocado rather than the larger kind grown in Florida. They are creamier and less watery.
  • If your avocado is very unripe, the best way to ripen them is in the refrigerator. This can take up to four days, but keep in mind that we want our avocados to be just slightly under-ripened for this recipe.
Serving Suggestions
Keto Avocado Fries make a fabulous appetizer but also are a phenomenal gluten-free side dish. When I am serving a side like this one, I like to keep my main dish simple. Try a steak with this Keto Steak Marinade or this Air Fryer Chicken.
Dipping Sauces for Keto Fried Avocado
I have given you a great easy dipping sauce in the recipe, but sometimes it is fun to mix things up. Try using this Keto Ranch Dressing or Keto Blue Cheese Dressing for fun alternatives.
