Avocado – it is healthy fats along with being fiber rich. But we also have to keep its servings in mind because it is also high in calories at the same time. Large firm avocado works great in this recipe.
Chickpea flour – its gluten free and high in protein. It’s a whole grain and comes in two varieties. One made from garbanzo beans and the other made from chickpea lentils. Both works in this avocado fries recipe.

How to make
Step 1: Slicing
Firstly, I made a cut mark vertically on avocado with a sharp knife and separated them into two halves.
Secondly, I made thin slices of it while it was still with the skin and made a cut horizontal as well.
Next, with a spoon, I gently took separated each slice from its skin and kept it aside. The slices would look similar to wedges.
Step 2: Batter
Firstly, I combined chickpea flour, salt, garlic powder and chili powder in a bowl. Then, I mixed it with a spoon.
Secondly, I added water in it and whipped it into a smooth batter.
Also, I combined panko crumbs on a flat plate and kept it aside.
Step 3: Assemble
In this step, I dipped all the slices in the chickpea flour batter and gently covered each slice in the batter.
Secondly, with the help with a fork I rolled each slice in the panko crumbs.
Step 4: Air frying
In this step I placed all the breaded slice in the basket and then attached it to the air fryer.
Next, I turned it on at 350 degrees for only 10 minutes.
Once done, I turned it off and took it out.
I immediately served these avocado fries. My family loved its crispy exterior and creamy bites from inside.
Oven baked avocado fries also tastes great and very easy to make. Simply dip the slices in the batter and then roll in panko. Then, place them on the prepared baking sheet and bake them in the preheated oven at 375-degree Fahrenheit for only 20 minutes. Turn it off and take it out and then serve immediately.
