Prep time: 5 mins Cook time: 20 mins Total time: 25 mins
Author: Layla Recipe type: appetizer Cuisine: healthy Serves: 2
2 large avocados, sliced
Juice of ½ lime (optional)
Salt & Pepper
¼ cup flour
1 egg, lightly beaten Coupons
1 cup panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons oil
Chipotle dipping sauce
Pre-heat oven to 400 Degrees F. Pour 1 tablespoon oil in sheet tray or baking dish; set aside.
Squeeze fresh lime juice on avocado slices to preserve their color while baking (this step is optional). Season with salt, pepper. Dredge in flour then dip in egg and coat in panko breadcrumbs. Be sure the avocado slices are coated very well in the panko.
Place in a single layer on the greased sheet pan. Drizzle with the remaining oil or spray with cooking spray. This will help the avocado slices crisp in the oven.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the avocados are golden and crispy. If desired, more oil can be drizzle while they are baking for additional crispness.
Serve with chipotle dipping sauce (get the recipe in the comments below) or with ranch, ketchup, or your favorite dip!
These avocado fries will last in the fridge for up to 24 hours and are excellent when re-heated in the toaster oven.
