the best baked avocado fries! 

Here’s how to make the best baked avocado fries. I was inspired by some avocado fries served at a retreat I attended recently, and knew I had to re-create them at home. Here’s the thing–I wasn’t team avocado fries until I tried one. It’s a creamy center, wrapped in a flavourful, crunchy crust that, in a weird way, reminded me of my mozzarella stick days.

But here’s the thing. At first I thought, healthy fats + deep frying = ?. Delicious, no doubt, but to me, it kind of defeat the purpose of “healthy fats”. You probably know that I like to cook sans oil and rely on whole food plant based fat sources instead, so guess what? I made ’em oil free. Aside from keeping things whole food plant based, I think skipping deep frying makes these 100% home cook friendly. I can’t be the only one that finds deep-frying just a little scary at home (or am I?). Not to mention, you skip all the oil cleanup!!!

So this recipe is a baked version that requires no frying, and is vegan, gluten-free, and nut free too. We’re replacing the traditional egg batter with another one of my favourite healthy fats, tahini. It not only is the “glue” in this recipe, but also holds some of the spice and flavour the avocado needs.

secrets to success

If you’d like to bake these with a little drizzle of oil of choice, feel free to, but if you’d like to keep them oil free, I recommend a good nonstick baking sheet, or parchment paper.

Make sure you season both the “batter” and the “crumb” topping, in order to pack in the flavour.

The batter and crumb procedure is the same one I use to make my Tempeh Tenders, if you want to check that how-to first!

I used gluten-free bread crumbs, (actually, I used this chickpea based crumb), but if you aren’t allergic, feel free to use regular bread crumbs, you lucky duck!

    Thank you for this simple recipe. I noticed you had Cajun seasoning / seasoning of choice one in ingredients but in the directions under batter and dry mix. Did you mean breadcrumbs for the dry mix instead?
