Avocado is a great, high-in-healthy-fats ingredient to enjoy on keto. I love my avocado fresh, simply sprinkled with salt and (both white and black) pepper, then simply finished with a generous squeeze of lemon. However, here I chose to shake things up a bit: I dusted avocado slices in seasoned coconut flour and shallow-fried the pieces until golden on the outside. The flavour of cooked avocado is very different to raw avocado and not everyone has a taste for it, but its lovely and makes for a unique breakfast experience. Macros for this breakfast or light lunch option includes the poached egg served on top. (For steps to making the perfect poached egg, see the Keto Salmon Eggs Benedict recipe on this site.)
Sprinkle the coconut flour over the avocado slices. Gently turn them to cover all sides in the flour.
Heat the coconut oil in a non-stick pan. Once hot, place the coated avocado slices into the pan and cook until golden and crispy on all sides (be sure to turn them gently).
Plate up and top the crispy avocado slices with a warm poached egg. Season the dish with sea salt flakes, a pinch of white pepper and some freshly ground black pepper. Finish with herbs if you are feeling fancy.

*Note for US readers: The recipes on this site show the carbohydrates which should be counted on keto (in this case: it's 3g). Here in the UK, our nutritional breakdown information displays a carbohydrate count that has already had the dietary fibre subtracted (and displayed separately) - and it’s indicated this way throughout the site. In short, you need not subtract anything further.
