These 7-ingredient baked avocado fries are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. It's a delicious, vegan, gluten-free appetizer or snack recipe.
Avocado is a really popular fruit and one of our favorite sources of fat. We use it to make all kinds of savory recipes like salads, burritos or toasts, because avocado goes well with pretty much everything.
Pinterest is a great platform for finding new recipes and when I saw avocado fries for the first time I knew I had to make them, but in a healthier way (baked, vegan and gluten-free).
They're so crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside and you can eat them with any dipping sauce you have on hand. It's a delicious and easy to make appetizer or snack recipe.
You can see the avocado fries just before baking in the picture below and the final product in the other photos. Hope you give this amazing recipe a try!

Baked Avocado Fries (Vegan and Gluten-Free)
- 1 firm avocado
- 2 tablespoon flour, we used brown rice flour
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- Dash of ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoon plant milk of your choice, we used soy milk
- ⅓ cup nutritional yeast
- Simple restaurant-style salsa, optional
- Preheat the oven to 350ºF or 180ºC.
- Add the flour, garlic powder, salt and pepper to a shallow dish and mix until well combined. Place the milk and nutritional yeast in 2 separate shallow bowls.
- Halve the avocado, discard the pit and skin and cut each half into 6 slices.
- Coat each slice in flour, then milk, and finally nutritional yeast.
- Place the avocado fries onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. We made our simple restaurant-style salsa, but any other will do. We also love our mayonnaise, aioli, ketchup, yogurt sauce or ranch dressing.
- The baked avocado fries are better fresh, but you can also keep them in a sealed container in the fridge for 2 to 3 days.
- Baked nutritional yeast has a bitter taste, but we like it. If you don't, use some breadcrumbs or panko instead.
- Omit the garlic powder and pepper if you want or add more spices.
- Add more flour, milk or nutritional yeast if needed.

I cut open an avocado too early and found your recipe to salvage my avocado. I even left my quartered avocado in the fridge for 2 days before making the fries, and the fries were fantastic! My housemate who is picky about her food said they were so good! An easy recipe to follow. I might cut more avocados “too early” to make these again. Thank you!

Hi Victoria! I'm glad you both liked it 🙂
If I wanted to make this keto friendly, do you have any idea what I could substitute out?
Hi Ben! I don't follow a keto diet, so I can't help you, sorry!

I decided to make my last avocado into this recipe. It was easy. They turned out crunchy and tasty. I dipped them in a mild Salsa. The 6 pieces were filling and delicious. I would recommend this recipe to everyone.

I'm an amazing chef so this tasted great! Love it :))))))))))))))
Hi Paulie! So glad you enjoyed it 😀
I'd love to try this recipe but I was just wondering about whether "firm avocado" means an unripe one? Or just a ripe but firm variety? Thanks!
Hi Becky! An unripe one, if you use an avocado that is too soft or ripe, it's not going to work 🙂
