Ingredients to Make Avocado Fries

  • Avocados: Use ripe avocados, but not overripe, so that they keep their shape. Avocados are a great source of healthy fats and vitamins.
  • Flour: Standard all-purpose flour is perfect for this recipe. You can also use a 1:1 GF flour if you have an intolerance.
  • Seasonings: Chili powder, garlic powder, and salt.
  • Eggs: To help the coating stick to the avocados. Use organic/free run eggs if you can.
  • Panko breadcrumbs: These breadcrumbs are super crispy and crunchy and make for a fabulous coating. You can use gluten-free panko if you have an intolerance.
  • Try different spices. Garlic powder, red pepper flakes, cilantro, parsley, dill, za’atar, everything bagel seasoning mix, or lemon salt all pair well with the flavor of avocado. Experiment with new flavors every time! 
  • Make it gluten-free. You can use a 1:1 ratio of gluten-free flour if you can’t eat gluten. 
  • Give the fries a spritz of olive oil. For super-crispy avocado fries, spritz the coating with olive oil spray before air frying the fries. 
  • Make avocado bites. You can cube your avocado to create air fryer avocado bites. 
  • Use cream instead of eggs. If you have an egg allergy, use cream instead. The cream will work just like the egg to hold your breading in place.  

How to make avocado fries

Start by slicing the avocados. Make sure they are firm and wide enough so they don’t fall apart after dredging.

Tips for Making the Best Avocado Fries Recipe

  1. Make sure to use firm avocados that are not too ripe. That will ensure that they hold up to the breading and frying process without falling apart or being soggy.
  2. Flip the avocados half way through cooking. Whether cooking the fries in the air fryer or in the oven, this tips helps ensure that the avocados are crispy all over.
  3. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket, or they won’t crisp up. They should be in one single layer. If you double the recipe, you may need to fry them in two batches.
  4. Don’t cut the avocados too thinly or they can fall apart. They should be fairly chunky as in the photos. Cut them into similar sizes so that they cook through evenly.

How to Store and Reheat Avocado Fries

These avocado fries are best when served fresh, but if you do have any leftovers, refrigerate them immediately in an air-tight container. 

To reheat the fries, just air fry them for one to two minutes at 360 degrees. 

How long will avocado fries last in the fridge? 

These avocado fries will last for about a day in the refrigerator. Store your fries in an air-tight container as soon as they’ve cooled for maximum freshness and flavor. 

Can I freeze this avocado fries recipe? 

For longer storage, these fries can be frozen for up to three months. Open-air freeze them on a baking sheet for about 20 minutes. Then, transfer them to a large freezer bag for storage.

Frequently asked questions

Can you make avocado fries ahead of time?

Avocado fries are best eaten straight away when they are freshly cooked, but you can get ahead of the game and dredge the fries and then keep them on a covered baking sheet in the fridge for a couple of hours before you want to cook them. Don’t prep them more than a couple of hours ahead of time or they will start to brown.

Can you reheat avocado fries?

Enjoy these fries as soon as they have been cooked. This will be when they are most crispy. If you do have leftovers, you can store them in an airtight container for one day. Reheat them in the air fryer or a toaster oven to help them crisp up again. It’s best not to reheat them in the microwave as this can soften the coating.

What is the perfect ripeness for avocado fries?

Choose an avocado that is just ripe. A fully ripe avocado will yield to firm, gentle pressure. Look for avocados that are just a bit firmer than that, yielding only slightly to the pressure of your finger.

  • 3 tablespoons Greek Yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

  • In a small bowl, mix the flour with the chili powder, garlic powder and salt. Place the beaten egg in another bowl and the panko breadcrumbs in a third bowl.
  • Dredge the avocado in the flour mixture, then the egg and finally the panko breadcrumbs, pressing down lightly until the crumbs stick. Spray both sides with oil.
  • For the air fryer, air fry at 400°F. until about for 7 to 8 minutes, turning halfway through until golden brown.
  • For the oven, bake on a greased baking sheet lined at 425°F for 12-15 minutes, turning halfway through, until golden brown.
  • Serve hot with spicy mayo dipping sauce, if desired.
