Air Fryer Avocado Fries
Air Fryer Avocado Fries are a must-try! It’s hard to beat the combination of creamy avocado slices and a crunchy, perfectly seasoned crust. Aside from herbs and spices, we’re also boosting the flavor with everything bagel seasoning. And did we mention they only take about 7 minutes in the air fryer? Serve with your favorite dip, and get ready to fight over the last piece!
Aside from being a great appetizer and snack, we also love subbing them for regular potato fries in our meals. They’re an amazing side to burgers, tacos and burritos, BBQs, and other entrees.
Finally, they’re an excellent choice for parties, too. Serve them on an appetizer buffet along with other healthy veggie starters like our Air Fryer Fried Pickles, Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower Wings, and Air-Fryer Shrimp Cakes!
Why You Should Use an Air Fryer for Avocado Fries?
For one, it’s faster and less messy than frying or baking. In addition, it’s healthier too, since you don’t need a lot of fat to crisp them up. It’s also very convenient if you’re making smaller servings since you won’t have to heat up the oven or take out a frying pan to make this dish. If you want to make a big serving, simply air-fry in batches.
What do you need:

How to make Air Fryer Avocado Fries

- Coat. Coat each fry in this order: seasoned flour, then a dip in the egg, and lastly dredge it in the seasoned panko.
- Cook. Arrange in the air fryer basket in a single layer, with a small hap in between. Air-fry at 400F for 4 mins., then flip and air-fry for another 2-3 minutes.

How to store leftovers?
After they’ve cooled down, place in a single layer inside an air-tight container. You can keep this chilled for up to 3 days, but for the best texture, we highly suggest finishing them ASAP.
Can you reheat them?
Yes, but do note that they won’t be as crunchy as freshly air-fried. To reheat, you can air-fry or bake them at 370F for a couple of minutes until hot and crisped up. We’re using a lower heat so they don’t burn and are able to warm up completely.
- You can also use this method for other vegetables like zucchini or sweet potatoes. Just add or subtract more minutes depending on the veggie.
- Since this breading has three layers, it’s important to organize your bowls. This will make it easier to coat each piece without making a big mess.
- Try other seasonings! These are delicious with Cajun seasoning, some cayenne for heat, Taco seasoning, dry ranch powder, lemon salt, seasoned bread crumbs, Old Bay, or parmesan.
