Baked Avocado Fries

I love avocados, full of healthy fats, they’re a great addition to any meal. But, my husband? Not so much. The creamy texture weirds him out, but, he likes the taste. So, last night I set out to find a way to combine the healthiness of the avocado with some crisp (no breadcrumbs needed!). End result? Fantastic!

Baked Avocado Fries

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole avocados, sliced with skin removed.
  • 2 TB cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup flour (I used gluten free all-purpose flour)
  • 2 TB fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Drizzle sliced avocados with EVOO.
  • Sprinkle garlic and paprika over the slices.
  • Combine flour and cheese.
  • Place avocado pieces in egg whites, then dip them into flour mixture.
  • Put the slices onto a greased baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until crispy and brown.

It’s that easy. And they were so good. We dipped them in a ranch/barbecue sauce mixture, but you could do anything you’d like or nothing with these! Give them a try!
