These Baked Avocado Fries are oven-baked and oil-free, but still crispy and tasty! Vegan, Gluten-Free, and only 7 ingredients.

You know that moment when Avocados go on sale and you buy way too many because you can’t pass that deal up? But then you now have way too many ripening Avocados on your hands and the oh-my-gosh-what-the-heck-do-I-do-now feels start to creep in?

Heck, these Crispy Baked Avocado Fries are so tasty that you might even want to intentionally buy those Avocados in bulk. They’re crispy and crunchy on the outside, soft and creamy on the inside, and made with only 7 plant-based ingredients! They’re also Vegan, Gluten-Free, Oil-Free, and dangerously addicting.

While most Avocado Fries are deep-fried in restaurants, these are still just as crunchy without ANY oil! The secret is in the dry coating – I used a combination of Cornmeal for some texture and bite, as well as finely-ground Almond Flour — this releases some natural fat during the baking process to make everything nice and crispy. Or as I like to say, crispay 😉

The second secret to this recipe is choosing the best Avocados – you want them to be ripe, but not too ripe. You’ll have to peel the outer skin of the Avocado off, so they can’t be too mushy. Life Hack: make sure to always buy Avocados with the tiny “stem” in them; once the Avocado starts to soften, remove the stem — if the Avocado is green underneath, it’s ripe! Here’s a photo for reference.

I’ve also provided both Oven and Air Fryer instructions for this recipe. Personally, I actually preferred the Oven version this time around – the Fries stuck to the Air Fryer without any oil, so you’d definitely need to spray the container before baking.

Considering (1) Avocados are life, and (2) Everything is better when surrounded in a crispy breading…it’s kind of hard to go wrong with this recipe. I ate much more of them than I’d care to admit the day I made them, but I think that attests to the deliciousness! At least, that’s what I’m going to keep telling myself.

A Few Final Thoughts:

  • I served these Baked Avocado Fries with my Vegan Chipotle Mayo (which I would 11/10 suggest), but you can serve them however you’d like! If you decide to make Avocado Tacos with them….please send me some. 
  • These are best consumed straight out of the oven, so if you’re making them for only 1-2 people, I would suggest cutting the recipe in half.
  • If you have a Nut Allergy, fear not! I have also provided nut-free substitutions in the recipe notes.

These Baked Avocado Fries are oven-baked and oil-free, but still crispy and tasty! Vegan, Gluten-Free, and only 7 ingredients.

  • Author: Caitlin Shoemaker
  • Prep Time: 10 Minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 Minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 Servings 1x
  • Category: Side
  • Method: Oven, Air Fryer
  • Cuisine: Tex Mex



For the Dry Mix:

For the Wet Mix:

  • ½ cup Gluten-Free Flour*
  • ½ cup – 1 cup Non-Dairy Milk (I used Almond)
  • ½ tsp Garlic Powder
  • ½ tsp Salt


  1. Preheat the Oven to 475F, if you are using it. Add all of the ingredients for the Dry Mix into a small bowl and mix well.
  2. Next, add the Gluten-Free Flour, Garlic Powder, Salt, and 1/2 cup of Non-Dairy Milk to a separate small bowl. Mix to combine, adding extra liquid as necessary. The Wet Mix should have the consistency of a pancake batter once finished (don’t make it too thin!)
  3. Cut each Avocado in half lengthwise, then use your fingers to peel the outer skin of the Avocado off. Once you have finished, cut each Avocado half into 4 equal pieces. You should have 8 pieces total for each Avocado.
  4. Using separate hands, dunk each Avocado slice into the Wet Mix, let the excess drip off, and then place it into the dry mix and coat evenly. (NoteI like to “pick up” a small handful of breadcrumbs before I place the Avocado into the dry mix, and then sprinkle those on top of the Avocado to help coat it more efficiently)
  5. Repeat with the remainder of the Avocado slices, then bake accordingly:
    1. Oven: Place all of the Avocado slices on a greased or lined baking tray and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, flip each of the slices, and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.
    2. Air-Fryer: Spray the bucket with a good coating of nonstick cooking spray, otherwise the Fries will stick. Then, place the Avocado slices into the container so they do not touch (you will need to do multiple batches). Bake each batch at 340F for 17-19 minutes; you do not need to flip the slices.
  6. Serve with Vegan Chipotle Mayo, or as desired. These are best consumed immediately, though they can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days.


  • I used Brown Rice Flour for this recipe, but any Gluten-Free blend should work. You can also use All Purpose Flour, if you are not Gluten-Free. Just keep in mind that each flour absorbs liquid at a different rate, so start with 1/2 cup of Non-Dairy Milk and go from there.
  • If you have a nut allergy, you can substitute the Almond Flour for finely-ground breadcrumbs, or more Cornmeal.

  1. I loved this recipe!! I ended up cutting the avocado fries into fourths once they were out of the oven and mixing the pieces with rice and vegan chipotle sauce. I also tried this again but with brussel sprouts and it tasted good as well. Thank you so much!

    1. Coconut flour is extremely absorbent and would probably mess with how the breading adheres to the avocado and since we haven’t tried that we would recommend substituting the almond flour for finely ground breadcrumbs or more cornmeal.

  2. I eat CRISPY BAKED AVOCADO FRIES every single day! Love the richness and creaminess of this wonder fruit ???? Had only savoury version before, but it was long time ago.

  3. Great info. Lucky me I discovered your blog by chance (stumbleupon).
    I have saved as a favorite for later!

  4. Caitlin, ANOTHER winner! This was so easy and tasty. Since I made this on the fly, I had to wing the chipotle mayo by using a vegan mayo w/a healthy dose of smoky chipotle powder, crystallized lime and garlic powder (a good stand in unt I can make the full recipe).
    Moowhahaha, CostCo bag of avocados- I am NOT passing you by any longer. I now have plans for ALL of you!

  5. The is looks good for my grandbaby who has to have gluten-free, but i would also need to substitute the cornmeal cause she can not have corn either, nor wheat, or whey.

  6. The baked avacado wedges sound and look terrific! Is there a calorie/fat gram count?

    Thank you!!

    1. Hi Debra! I do not calculate or report the calorie information for my recipes, but there are plenty of recipe calculators out there if you wish to do so yourself 🙂

      1. These are so delicious! I used the suggestion of adding Parmesan to the dry mix-turned out perfect. I had no chipotle sauce so I made sriracha mayo instead. My husband who rarely offers critiques on food said he liked them. I definitely will be making these regularly. Thank you!

  7. Well this recipe looks like it has my name plastered all over it! Being a major avo lover … like most of the population these days … you can only imagine my excitement when I saw this post pop up in my inbox! Baked Avocado Fries without ANY oil?! I mean what can get better than that! I can guarantee you that I will be buying my avocados only in bulk now so I can constantly make these for my family and I! Another way I like to eat my avocados is by cutting them in half, removing the pit, and then grilling them! So so tasty and perfect to go along with any meal or have as a snack with so lime juice squeezed on top. And also (I promise, last thing), I have actually pulled that stem out of the avocado multiple times before and saw the green, but never have known what it meant! Well I guess you learn something new every day 😉

    1. Awesome, Isabella! I just tried some grilled avocado on my trip to Boston – it was amazing!
