Avocado Egg Rolls

These Avocado Egg Rolls are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside and are such a delightful snack idea! I first had a version of avocado egg rolls at a restaurant years ago and was hooked! The only problem was, I knew they were deep fried in vegetable oil and probably high in calories. I could have eaten the entire plate if not for the results on my waistline. So I set about making a version that was lower in calories but didn’t take away from the flavor. Each roll is only 168 calories, compared to fried egg rolls that can be 300 to 400 calories a piece! Perfect for when you are wanting to be good but need something yummy to bring to a potluck or party.

Ingredients in Avocado Egg Rolls

  • black beans – drained and rinsed
  • corn – drained and rinsed
  • tomatoes – diced small

  • Cilantro Verde Sauce – click for dip recipe

Suggestions for Healthy Baked Egg Rolls

  • So how do you make crispy egg rolls without frying? Bake them in the oven! Using egg roll wrappers, wrap the ingredients inside, then place seam side down on a cookie sheet that has been coated with cooking spray.
  • You could brush sesame oil, olive oil or even some cooking spray over the top of the egg rolls to get that shine after baking.
  • Each egg roll is loaded with avocado, black beans, and corn. Baked nice and toasty.
  • If you can’t find egg roll wrappers at the grocery store, you could substitute with wonton wrappers! They’re smaller, so they won’t fit as much filling, but they’re perfect bite size appetizers. Kids love them!
  • You could add shredded pork or chicken to these egg rolls as well and turn them into a meal.
  • These egg rolls can be baked ahead of time and frozen! Keep them in a freezer safe bag or container for up to two months. To reheat, just pop a few rolls in the microwave until heated through.

Don’t Forget the Dip!

We use our Cilantro Verde Sauce to dip these avocado egg rolls in. It’s our go to dip for nearly everything Mexican! Use the  tangy, slightly spicy sauce can as a salad dressing, or drizzled over burritos, tacos, enchiladas, just about anything! But it’s especially delicious with these egg rolls. Spicy, slightly sweet flavors of the sauce pair perfectly with the creamy avocado, buttery black beans and that crunchy shell. It’s so yummy and also low in calories, so you can feel good about serving this anytime!

    I made these yesterday but my supermarket didn’t have spring roll wrappers so I made mini ones in wonton wrappers. Kids took them to school cold for lunch and they were a huge hit. Then we had the left over filling as a side salad for our dinner.
