Gluten Free Avocado Fries

I love love love avocados and can never find enough ways to incorporate them into my diet. Not only are they rich and creamy but they can be used as a substitute for eggs in baking, as a great substitute for mayo in dips, great in pretty much any lettuce wrap, etc.

Let’s not forget the nutritional goodness of the avocado. Did you know that the avocado has nearly 20 beneficial vitamins and nutrients. It is also full of good fats.

I used gluten free panko crumbs but you can make your own by crushing gluten-free corn flakes (a little tip from my good friend Tracy). Plus you can use any spices you prefer in the almond meal/flour mixture. Make em spicy, make em sweeter, it’s up to you.

I dipped mine in a ranch flavored greek yogurt dip but a nice lemon dressing or chipotle would be great too. If you serve these for a party, offer a variety of dips for everyone’s tastes.
