I am in love ♥♥♥!!!
I just can’t even speak…
Make these. Seriously go make these!
Once you do, you’ll question your very existence. You’ll question how you ever went through life without these.
I made these and literally ate the entire plate myself… and since creating this recipe, I’ve made them 4 times! And because they are avocados AND because they are baked, I don’t feel a single bit guilty!
Now if you don’t mind, I need to go make another batch.
Dear God.. go make these!
I mean seriously, just by looking at the picture you can see that crunch they have going on! No oil, no deep frying.. just these luscious lovelies and your oven.
The contrast between the crunchy outside and the creamy smooth inside… OH DEAR SWEET BABY JESUS!
If you notice, I have a dipping sauce to go with this. I made a Creamy Cilantro Dipping Sauce that literally I have eaten straight off of the spoon, have used it on veggies, fish, crackers, another spoon, these avocado fries and chicken. It’s THAT good! No worries though, I’ll be posting it very soon.Print

How can I make these gluten-free. I know I can get the Rice Chex for the Panko but it also calls for flour?????
You have a few options here with the flour. You can use gluten free flour, rice flour (which is gluten free) OR if you want just take the Rice or Corn Chex and grind it twice – once for the panko and grind a second time to make powder. Use a single ingredient for a double duty.

I made these two days ago. They were absolutely wonderful but not by themselves. What I found to make them really good was a hot salsa. I didn’t try the other sauce as I am not fond of cilantro at all. It was almost like eating some interesting mashed potatoes. Also with the panko, I used Parmesan cheese & I think that was good as well. Thanks again for your wonderful recipes .
Oh the salsa sounds great! Yeah with cilantro either you love it or hate it. There is no middle ground I’ve found. I love the crispy coating by the creamy inside!
Best Kitchen Wishes!

I’m subscribed to your website, and get all of your recipes via email, but can never get them to print!!! It always says that there is nothing to print!!!
First, thank you for being part of the TKW Family! The way the Print Functionality works is if you get them via email you use the Print Functionality contained within your program that you use to read your email (Outlook/Gmail, etc). Standard methods are File/Print.
However to get JUST the recipe click on the website link in the email that will open up your browser to the recipe posting. In the recipe itself, upper right corner, if you click print, it will bring up an second window for the recipe and your choice to select a printer (if you have more). If it doesn’t open up, then I suggest you check your browser’s security setting to allow this window to pop up. Your anti-virus may have a setting that prohibits this (like pop-up blocker) although this technically isn’t a pop-up.
