Paleo Crispy Okra Fries

Tonight I tried a recipe that Mary of PaleoLove Company shared with me and it was too delicious not to share. I hope you enjoy! Side note: you can find her products and many other great vendors Saturdays at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market.


2 dozen okra

1 beaten egg

⅔ c of blanched almond flour 

½ tsp cayenne (optional for spice)

⅓ c tapioca flour

½ tsp paprika

¼ tsp garlic powder

¼ tsp onion powder

¼ tsp ground pepper

¾ tsp himalayan salt (pink)

Spray olive oil or coconut oil 


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Rinse okra and place in bowl with beaten egg, coat well
  3. In either separate bowl or a large bag, whisk or shake almond flour, tapioca flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, ground pepper and salt. Coat okra well. 
  4. Place parchment paper or silicon baking pad on a baking sheet.
  5. Coat okra by dropping handfuls in the bag and shake well. Can do this in a bowl too. I just find it easier in a bag. 
  6. Place coated okra on baking sheet and spray with olive oil or coconut oil. Can also just brush with ¼ cup of olive oil. 
  7. Bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown. 
  8. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
