Avocado Wedges with Chipotle Sauce -Whole30, Paleo, Keto, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free option. Airfryer or oven, appetizer, easy!

Just when you thought you couldn’t love avocados more…enter my Whole30 Avocado Wedges! These blew my mind and my husband and I just fought over the last few. Delicious – crispy on the outside and creamy in the middle, with a sauce that has a little (but not too much – I’m a spice weenie) kick. A perfect appetizer or dinner add-on!

Why I Love These Whole30 Avocado Wedges

First, they are Whole30, Paleo, Keto, gluten-free, dairy-free, with nut-free, egg-free + Vegan or Plant-Based Whole30 options. Second, you can cook these in the air fryer or oven. I prefer the crisp results from the air fryer, but include oven instructions if you don’t have an air fryer. You can learn all about why I love my air fryer and which ones I’ve had in the blog post here.

Finally, I love them because they are a fun finger food! Perfect to pass around at a party or to bring as a game-day snack. Or, add them as a side dish to dinner to give dinner some healthy fats to keep everyone full and fueled.

Ingredients

Avocado Wedges
  • Avocados – Ideally your avocados will be just ripe. If they are too ripe, they can be hard to handle in the breading process.
  • Eggs – Eggs help the breading to stick. However, if you need an egg-free or vegan option, see the recipe notes for a substitution.
  • Tapioca or arrowroot powder – Either will work equally well in this recipe. Tapioca is what I usually have on hand – I get mine from the bulk bins at Winco. You can also find it easily on Amazon here.
  • Almond flour – Almond flour makes a great swap for breadcrumbs or panko due to its rough texture. I like this one from Blue Diamond I can get at Sam’s Club or Amazon. See notes for nut-free option!
  • Salt – I just use traditional table salt.
  • Garlic powder – You can use garlic powder or granulated garlic for this recipe.

Chipotle Sauce
  • Mayo – We love using my homemade 5-Minute Whole30 Mayo to keep this budget-friendly and accessible. You can also use any store bought mayo that works for your dietary needs. If on a Whole30 and want store-bought, I recommend Primal Kitchen Mayo. If on a Whole30 or eat Paleo and need an egg-free or vegan mayo, I recommend this Vegan Mayo from Primal Kitchen. If you shop on primal kitchen.com, use code WHOLEFOODFOR7FAVORITES to save 20%!
  • Salt
  • Chipotle chili powder or chili powder – Chipotle chili powder will give it the most kick. But, if you can’t find it, traditional chili powder will work.
  • Paprika – I get my spices in bulk from Winco bulk bins or Sam’s Club.
  • Ketchup – This will also depend on what your dietary needs are. If you are on a Whole30, make sure you are using an unsweetened ketchup like Primal Kitchen’s (available at my local Walmart or use the code above to get a discount off their website). If you are not on a Whole30, use whatever ketchup sweetness and sweetener works for your family!

Ingredients
 

Avocado Wedges

  • 2 just ripe avocados halved, then each half cut into 4 wedges
  • 2 eggs*
  • 1/2 cup tapioca or arrowroot flour*
  • 1 cup almond flour*
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

Chipotle Sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayo compliant if on Whole30
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder or chipotle powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup ketchup compliant if on Whole30

Instructions
 

  • If using the oven, preheat to 400 degrees.
  • Set out three shallow bowls. In one, place tapioca flour. In the second shallow bowl, crack and scramble eggs. In the third, combine almond flour, salt, and, garlic powder.
  • Take one avocado wedge and roll in tapioca flour. Then, place in egg mixture, flipping gently to coat, letting excess drip off. Finally, toss gently in the almond flour mixture, pressing avocado slice down into the flour to coat well. Place in a single layer on an air fryer basket or on oven sheet lined with parchment.
  • Repeat with all avocado wedges. Airfry at 375 degrees for 8-10 minutes, no need to flip (due to space and need for single layer, will need to do it in 2-3 batches, depending on size of airfryer). Or, if using the oven, bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Cook until golden brown on the outside.
  • While cooking avocado wedges, combine all chipotle sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Chill until ready to serve.
  • Avocado wedges are delicious served hot and a great appetizer for any meal or party! Chipotle sauce keeps well in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. Leftover avocado wedges are
    excellent re-crisped in the airfryer.

Notes

*MODIFICATIONS:
TO MAKE THESE NUT FREE – I don’t recommend coconut flour instead of almond flour (you’ll feel like you are eating sand), but unsweetened coconut flakes pulsed into a meal worked fabulously as an option to substitute for the almond flour!
TAPIOCA/ARROWROOT FLOUR - Just omit that first breading step that uses them. Recipe still works without it, just not as tasty.
TO MAKE THIS EGG-FREE– Compliant canned coconut milk works well to substitute for the eggs in this recipe. For the sauce, use a vegan mayo like Primal Kitchens for the base.

    So easy! We bought a bag of avocados and needed something easy to prepare. These hit the spot.

    We ended up using 3 avocados rather than 2, so you can definitely extend the dry/wet batter. We also used our toaster oven @ 400F and flipped them halfway. They turned out nice a crispy.
