I've made Bacon Bombs, Fat Bombs and Cheese Bombs… And now it's time for guacamole bombs!!! If you like my recipe for Avocado Fries – you'll love this too! I've included how to make guacamole in the recipe, but quite honestly you could use store-bought or your own preferred recipe. Just make sure you allow enough time for them to be frozen before coating and frying.
Oh – and I have shallow fried them in this recipe but I'll be honest and say if you are OK with deep fat frying they'd probably be even better – but it's not something that I'm ever comfortable doing, and shallow frying is good enough!
But they're very moreish – and although you don't need to also provide a dip, something like sour cream is a nice addition.

How to Make Low Carb Guacamole Bombs
To make the guacamole, add two avocados, low carb salsa, onion powder, ground cumin, lime juice, fresh chopped cilantro, salt and pepper to a bowl. Mash everything together until smooth.
Use a spoon or cookie scoop to portion out the guacamole onto a small baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or wax paper. This recipe makes 12 guacamole bombs!
Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 2 hours.
For the breading, I used some Low Carb Seasoned Bread Crumbs from LC Foods – which they kindly sent to me. They're 0.3g net carbs per serving of two tablespoons. I often use crushed pork rinds as breading or coating but these are super convenient! Although they're not gluten free, they are sugar free and don't contain any artificial ingredients. And the seasoning is perfect for this recipe!
Gluten free option: Replace the low carb breadcrumbs with the coating that I made for my low carb chicken tenders recipe.
Place the breadcrumbs in one bowl, and a beaten egg in another. Take the avocado balls out of the freezer and, working quickly, dip each one fully in the egg, then roll it around in the breadcrumbs until fully coated. Place it on a plate and repeat with the rest.
Add some oil to a large skillet and place over a medium-high heat. Add the guacamole bombs and cook until they start to harden on the outside and turn darker brown. They will need turning often for even cooking.
Transfer them to a serving plate and serve warm with sour cream.
