Low Carb French Fries

These are, hands down, the BEST keto french fry recipe I have had to date! This recipe was inspired by Heavenly Fan who makes vegan keto recipes on YouTube. She is credited to making the foundation for this almond flour keto fries recipe. I added a few extras to perfect the flavor.

From appearance, to texture, to taste, these golden brown keto french fries are the closest thing to traditional fries you find at a fast food joint. In fact, they remind me a lot of McDonald’s fries with their appearance and crispy texture! Dip these fries in sugar-free ketchup or ranch and serve them next to your favorite burger.

Before these fries, most of us are used to making jicama fries. Keto jicama fries are good, but they are an effort to make and have a slightly sweet flavor. These almond flour keto fries don’t require any peeling and only take a few minutes to prepare. Plus, you can FREEZE them! You can have fries on your plate whenever you want.

Almond Flour French Fries

This keto french fries recipe is made using almond flour. Almond flour has a fine texture and delicate crumb so when this dough is fried or baked, the texture is similar to the inside of a soft potato, yet the outside is golden and crispy. I recommend using a finely milled almond flour in this fry recipe.

Can I Use Coconut Flour?

If you are allergic to almond flour or don’t like the taste of it, you can substitute with coconut flour. Heavenly Fan recommends you use 50 grams of coconut flour. You will need to add less because coconut flour tends to absorb more liquid than almond flour does, so you need less of it.

Xanthan Gum Role in Keto Fries

The xanthan gum in this side dish recipe is used to hold the dough together. Xanthan gum is often used in keto recipes to provide structure and support. It helps hold the components together so the fries stay stable during frying or baking.

Potato Flavoring

This step is optional but I highly recommend it in order to get an authentic potato french fry flavor. If you can get ahold of it, add a small amount of potato extract. Use my affliate code ketofocus-10 to save 10% off your order.

Another option to try is butter extract, which is commonly sold in most grocery stores. Only add about 1/4 teaspoon. You don’t want these keto french fries to taste like buttered popcorn!

Frozen Keto French Fries

Besides being the best keto french fries I’ve ever tasted, these fries can be FROZEN!!! So you can easily have french fries for dinner to go along with your dinner. This is an excellent keto food to meal prep. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe to make up a big batch of frozen fries.

To freeze these keto fries, prepare as instructed until you make the strips of dough. At this point lay the strips of keto dough onto a parchment or foil lined baking tray and flash freeze until hardened. This will prevent the fries from stick to each other. Once hardened, transfer the low carb almond fries to a freezer safe bag and store in the freeze until ready to use.

You can cook these keto almond flour fries from frozen. Just follow the instructions above to continue cooking.

  1. Really good!!! Added chili flakes, dried rosemary and sesame seeds before adding water and stirring. I’m sure this can added to dough before rolling the dough. Cut into strips ahd cooked in airfryer for 8 mins, turn over if you want and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  2. Saturday night is wing night in our house but I always try to make something new and last night Keto Fries was our something new and I have to tell you they were pretty darn good. I do think I did cut them a little too thin but they were still really really good (reminded me of hickory sticks if you know what those are).

    This recipe has been voted in as a regular to our Saturday Chicken Wing night.

    Highly recommended

    Cheers

  3. I literally feel like I’m cheating when eating these! they are so similar to actual French fries it’s amazing!!! finally something to curb that craving for potato French fries that won’t jeopardize your diet!!

  4. How are you getting 2 1/2 net carbs per serving? The almond flour that you have linked is 4 carbs per 2 tablespoons. You have the recipe almost 14 tablespoons. Thats 28 carbs!! And you said it’s four servings..?🤔
