I am sooooo excited for you guys to try this recipe! I’m a huge snacker. I snack alllll day, and this is one of my new favorites. It’s so rich an filling that I can usually only eat a few slices at a time! Luckily, it’s a snack with a purpose, because avocados are filled with healthy fats that will leave you feeling satisfied but not weighed down.

You’ve probably noticed that I like to keep my ingredient lists rather small. I like my recipes to be intriguing but not intimidating. My goal is to make healthy eating fun, easy, simple, and delicious for everyone. I hope you love these 4 ingredient Avocado Fries and super easy High Protein Ranch Dip made with only 2 ingredients!

This question comes up pretty often. What is panko and why is it better than regular bread crumbs?
Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb traditionally used as a coating for deep-fried foods. The biggest difference between panko and standard breadcrumbs is that panko is made from bread without crusts.

Panko’s crustless bread is coarsely ground into airy, large flakes that give fried foods a light, crunchy coating. The flakes tend to stay crispier longer than standard breadcrumbs because they don’t absorb as much grease.

For this recipe I’ve paired my Avocado Fries with a High Protein Ranch Dip. One of my favorite healthy eating swaps is using Greek yogurt instead of Sour Cream. It has way less fat, much more protein, and contains probiotics which are live bacteria that support the healthy bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract and may help treat some digestive disorders and flatten your tummy. Since plain greek yogurt is tart, you get a very similar flavor to sour cream, but with tons of benefits.

    Can’t wait to try this…it looks delicious! I’ve always wanted to try avo fries, but I was weary at restaurants because they seemed like grease bombs. Thanks for the post.

    Veganize this with non dairy milk or egg replacer and plain soy yogurt or cashew sour cream. Also some of those season packets contain a lot of salt read the and label and some Panko flakes contain sugar.

    Avocados are one of those super foods that we all could use more of! I think baking them to add a little crunch is a great way to satisfy that snack craving we all have, but keep it super healthy and fresh at the same time!

    What a great snacks, I am sure it is declicous! Unfortunately I don’t have an oven for the moment so I will try to make them in the sauce pan, creating a substutue oven with the lid, it is worth testing! 🙂

    I am huge snacker to and nuts is my favorit, vegetable fat makes you feel full faster and longer. 🙂
