Keto French Fries [A Must Try!]
Going keto doesn’t mean giving up your favorite snacks like French fries! But fries contain potatoes, you say. Well, here’s the good news: these keto French fries are made using almond flour and mimic the flavor and texture of traditional carb-heavy fries.
They do take some time to prepare, but you’ll thank yourself you made the effort when you’re sitting back with a piping hot bowl and your favorite dipping sauce. Making these keto fries starts by preparing the almond flour-based dough and then kneading and rolling it out before cutting it into long thin fries. All you need to do then is pop them into a hot pan of oil (or you can air fry or bake them), and the fries will be ready to devour within minutes.
The whole family will love these fries. They make the perfect accompaniment to burger night or can be whipped up as a standalone snack. You can even make a big batch and freeze any that you don’t cook—they cook and taste just as good when defrosted. Go ahead and give these keto French fries a try. We’re sure you’ll love them!

Looks good but is there another keto friendly flour that could be used?
@Cyndi Manka You would have to eat a lot of almonds to worry about oxalates. Most people probably don’t eat it everyday. There’s nothing wrong with having it every now and then.
@Kimberly Early not if you’re eating greens and chocolate and other things in your diet that are high in oxalates. They pile up they build up in your body cannot dump them.
@Kimberly Early plus almonds are the highest on the list in
As all the others have said, oxalates are not an issue for the vast majority of people. You only need to worry about them if you are prone to kidney stones or have kidney issues already. If you have kidney issues already, you should be cautious about a ketogenic diet anyway. Please stop spreading misinformation about oxalates.
Yum! I can see so many possibilities. Adding herbs, even crumbled cheese and crushed garlic like the ones sold on food trucks, or even a luscious dip. Thank you. I get so tired of pork rinds as my crunch element.
Garlic and herb sounds great!
Nutritional yeast adds a cheesy flavor. Or you can buy cheddar cheese powder – you just have to read labels carefully. Some have bad stuff like maltodextrin, but the King Arthur (yep, like the flour) is good ingredients and there are others. Read for the carbs, too – King Arthur is the best I’ve found at 3 grams for 2 Tablespoons. Many are that high for 1 Tablespoon or even higher. And you wouldn’t need that much, IMO.
I like to make Nacho Fries with cheese sauce (made from grated cheese), etc.
Oh my, these looks delish. 👍😋🍟
TFS RM, & take care too everybody. ❤️🙂🐶
It would seem that these keto fries would taste like fried bread sticks since they’re made of almond flour.
Some ppl use the mashed potato liquid concentrate…
@Orange Moon I tried with and without and didn’t think the mashed potato flavoring really added a good flavor. It made it slightly sweeter tasting but I didn’t really get a potato flavor from it, so I just omitted it. Plus it saves a good chunk of money since it’s pretty expensive to buy.
Yes, KetoFocus added the potato flavoring to the mix. I’m on the fence whether it adds to it or not. I’ve been out for awhile and haven’t really missed it and haven’t bothered to buy more. By the time you add a dip of ketchup (sugar free, of course) you don’t notice any difference at all.
It’s the texture. And if you dip into ketchup, it’s 👍🏻.
I made those and felt they tasted more like bread sticks, so I ended up having it with cream cheese.
What is the xanthum gum for pls?
The xantham gum is what helps bind the dough together like a glue. Really crucial in a lot of recipes that don’t have gluten or other binding material!
I dunno RuledMe, thumbs up anyway just because you’re RuledMe.👍👍👍👍👍
@Lucinda Jackson 😅🤣😂👍
Know what’s even funnier than my telling you they’re good? A grown adult saying “Oh, ick, pooey!” to a food they haven’t even tried, like a toddler. 🤷🏼♀️
@Lucinda Jackson Awesome, who said this???…😆😅🤣😂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zXnarPaGEo
I use those red small radishes for my potato substitute, especially in my pot roasts, etc. I wonder if a recipe could be made using them shaped into fries. Hash browns would be easy, but french fries? I’m going to look into it. I just bought a bag of halloumi cheese fries from Aldi. I’ve eaten them before, just a tad salty.
I’ve dehydrated radish before and it really didn’t turn out that well. Oven roasting radish is better, but they don’t get a crispy outer layer that I’m after.
@RuledMe If you fry your radishes in the skillet _after_ roasting them in the oven, they will! More or less, of course, depends on one’s preference. 😄 I would recommend to use less salt though — after frying they become saltier (I guess, because of the butter).
Why almond flour? Videos showing keto recipes almost always use almond flour instead of coconut flour. Why? Coconut flour is much cheaper.
Exactly what VeeTeeF said – coconut flour tends to give a different taste and texture that only almond flour can give.
@RuledMe I personally like coconut flour and coconut milk
@Scott Powers I personally do, too. I just don’t love coconut flour in most savory applications. Though some it works well (like I did a coconut shrimp recipe using it).
I like both, but I think these (and lots of savory things) taste weird with coconut flour. Almond flour has a toasty “brown” flavor that lends itself to this recipe.
I agree the coconut flour tastes great with most dessert dishes and cookies, but the more savory applications require the almond.
Can you use Lupin flour instead of Almond for this recipe?
I don’t have much experience with lupin flour so I can’t say for sure. If you do try it out, let me know how it works!
This is too simple. There’s no way I’m not trying it as a great base. Maybe a flurry of seasonings and parmesan flakes for the crunchy seasoned fries I miss so much. With a cheeseburger bowl 🤗
How can these possibly taste like a potato substitute?
Try it and see! 🙃
These look good to me. Avocado oil is healthy. Will try to make these soon. Thank you for posting this ivdeo. Your videos are so well done, and don’t take long to watch. I skip over videos where they talk too much or act goofy because they’re on camera. I like your recipes the best.
It does look delicious!… But yet again it’s almond flour and I already know what it tastes like without trying… And again do feel offended if you feel like it. Sorry.
This reminds me of a recipe we have in my country called chicken foot or sal sev. It’s Indian in origin but popular in Indo-Caribbean culture and is usually made with chickpea/split pea flour and curry powder. I’ve seen an Indian keto version of sev made with almond flour and zantum gum too.
Is there an alternative to almond flour – I’m allergic 😛
Sunflower seed flour is the only alternative for allergies that you can use at a 1:1 ratio
Try using white turnips or jícama.
