Crispy Oven Baked Fries

Crispy Oven Baked Fries… a classic go-to for a busy night. Requiring very little prep, these homemade fries are an amazing alternative to store-bought frozen versions. Even many of the “healthier” brands found at Whole Foods are high in sodium and contain ingredients like citric acid, apple juice concentrate, and more. In this recipe, we used avocado and coconut oil, rather than canola, soybean, or palm oil. We paired our homemade fries with roasted veggies and Trader Joes Chicken-less Crispy Tenders for an easy Friday night dinner.

    These look amazing! Can you make them with olive oil if you don’t have avocado oil?

    1. Extra virgin olive oil (my go-to for roasting/sautéing) has a lower smoke point than other oils like avocado, canola, sunflower, grapeseed etc. so I usually don’t cook with it in the oven above 375º. Technically the smoke point is around 410º so you could use it, but if you have canola or another oil that is suitable for high-heat I would go with that 🙂
