After I made air fried avocado and bacon tacos I had several friends ask if I could make air fried avocado fries that are keto-friendly and gluten-free. So, about 57 avocados and a lot of testing later, I think we’ve finally got it.
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup almond flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
Olive oil spray can
1/2 cup Keto mayonnaise (My preference for low carb mayo, when I don’t want to make it myself, is Duke’s. It’s not available in stores in Colorado so I buy it on Amazon. Yes, I buy my mayonnaise on Amazon – this is a no judgment zone.)
1 1/2 Tablespoons your preferred hot sauce
A squeeze of lime
Salt to taste
Slice avocados in half, remove pit and, cutting lengthwise, divide each avocado into 8-12 slices.
Beat eggs and salt together in a bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine almond flour and Old Bay Seasoning.
Carefully dip avocado in egg mixture. Then dip in
HINT: Between each slice, you’re going to want to have a towel close by to wipe your hands. You need batter-free dry hands for each slice because once you get goo on them, it’s all downhill from there. Almond flour is a little sticky so you want to keep it out of the egg.
Once all slices are batter refrigerate for at least 30-45 minutes to chill and set.
Working in batches of 5 or 6 so they don’t touch, air fry on 355 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove and spritz with olive oil. Replace (flipped over) in the fryer for an additional 5 minutes. Do the same for additional batches.
HINT: I added the extra step of removing them from the fryer and spritzing them down to get a nice crusty finish on the batter. Skipping that step is ok, but the fries are a little crumblier – this is totally up to you. Essentially in the first 5 minutes of air
Mix dipping sauce ingredients – note that the salt in the egg and the Old Bay in the crust already give the avocados some salt, so be careful to not oversalt the sauce.
Cool and eat. Serve with a spicy mayo dipping sauce.
