Low Carb Avocado Egg Rolls

Rich, creamy, and packed with healthy fats, avocados can be a low carb lifestyle’s best friend. Guacamole might be the most obvious option, but you can also stuff them, blend them, or even use them to fill these delicious low carb avocado egg rolls. The creamy texture is the perfect compliment for the crispy, fried exterior. Traditional egg roll wrappers are packed with simple carbs, but a simple swap cuts the count down to a fraction of the takeout version.

While you can definitely make your own wrappers, using low carb flatbread as a substitute keeps things quick and simple. Two of the most popular options are Cut Da Carb flatbread and Joseph’s Lavash Bread. I’ve made these low carb avocado egg rolls with both, and they turn out great either way! That’s in part because the real star of the show here is the filling. In addition to the avocado, the rolls also include tomato, red onion, fresh cilantro, and a squeeze of lime juice.

After tossing together the filling and cutting your flatbread to size, it’s time to get rolling. The process is easier than it seems, and there are guides out there if you want a little extra direction. Brushing the edges with egg adds flavor and helps to seal your low carb avocado egg rolls so that they hold together when frying. For extra insurance, I also stick them in the freezer while the oil is heating. They take only a few minutes to cook.

These keto avocado egg rolls really shine when paired with a flavorful dipping sauce. The recipe below includes a chili lime sauce that you can whip up quickly, but you can also use plain soy sauce/liquid aminos or you favorite store bought option.

Ingredients

  • 2 low carb flatbreads such as Cut Da Carb or Joseph's Lavash Bread
  • 2 large avocados pitted and peeled
  • 2.5 ounces roma tomato diced
  • 2 tbsp red onion minced
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped, optional
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 egg beaten
  • oil for frying

Chili Lime Sauce (optional)

  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp low carb ketchup
  • 2 tbsp sriracha
  • 2 tbsp granulated Lakanto Classic or other keto sweetener

Instructions

Make Dipping Sauce (optional)

  • Add all ingredients to a small saucepan over medium heat and stir to combine. Simmer for 2-3 minutes, or until sweetener is dissolved. Remove from heat and set aside.

Keto Avocado Egg Rolls

  • Cut flatbreads in halve lengthwise, then cut each half into three squares (six pieces per flatbread, twelve pieces total).
  • Dice avocado into small cubes. Add to a bowl with tomato, onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Gently toss to combine.
  • To make the rolls: Add about 2T of the avocado mixture to each flatbread piece. Brush edges with beaten egg. Roll from the bottom, folding the sides in as you go. If needed, brush the last fold with more egg to seal. Repeat for remaining rolls.
  • For best results, chill rolls in freezer while you heat the oil.
  • Add about 1 inch of oil to a large frying pan over medium heat. Add egg rolls once oil reaches 350F, and fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden brown. Transfer finished rolls to a paper towel lined plate to drain and repeat for remaining rolls.
  • Best served immediately, with dipping sauce on the side if desired.

Notes

  • Cut Da Carb flatbreads and Joseph's Lavash Bread (Netrition | Amazon) both work well for this recipe. The nutritional estimates provided are based on using the former. 
  • Store refrigerated in a sealed container. To maintain crispiness, reheat in the oven, air fryer, or by sauteing in a small amount of oil over medium heat.
  • If you prefer not to make your own sauce, G Hughes makes sugar free Sweet Chili, Teriyaki, and Orange Ginger sauces that can be found in many stores.
