What are Green Bean Fries?
Air Fryer Green Bean Fries are a great alternative to regular fries. Instead of dipping in ketchup, serve with my homemade ranch dressing and it serves as the perfect crispy appetizer, snack or side dish. I love serving them with a lettuce wrap burger and it gives me all the same feels as a regular burger and fry combo.
Ingredients needed for Air Fryer Green Bean Fries?
- Green beans
- Almond flour
- Nutritional yeast
- Garlic powder
- Onion powder
- Homemade ranch dressing
How to make?
Preheat air fryer to 390°F. Trim the ends of the green beans and rinse/dry. Prepare your two dipping bowls. One for the egg wash and the other with all the dry ingredients
One at a time, dip green beans in the egg wash and then the dry mix. Place in air fryer in an even layer and spray the beans with cooking spray. Cook for 8-9 minutes until golden brown.
At the halfway mark, be sure to shake the basket and spay the tops with cooking spray to help get a crunch texture. Serve with my homemade ranch dressing and enjoy!
How do you cook Green Bean Fries in an Oven?
Yes! Follow all the steps in the instructions below. Instead of adding to the air fryer do the following:
- Preheat oven to 425F
- Spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray, then line the green beans up in a single layer across the pan.
- Bake for 12-13 minutes or until the coating begins to brown.
- Serve with homemade ranch dressing
Tips and Tricks for these Fries:
- Spray the fried with cooking spray before cooking and again when you pull the air fryer basket to shake. This will ensure a nice crispy texture.
- When coating the green beans in the egg, use a fork to dip them before transferring to the dry mix. This will help keep your fingers clean,
- Do not overcrowd the air fryer. The green beans should be on a single layer in order to get as crispy as possible.
In conclusion, if you are looking for the perfect healthy appetizer, side dish or snack, look no further. These Air Fryer Green Bean Fries have the perfect crunch and texture. You seriously won’t even miss real fries. Pair them with my homemade ranch dressing and you are all set!

These were awesome! We’ve been getting a lot of green beans in our Imperfect boxes and I’m so tired of the same old… this was something different and delicious. My 7-year-old gave them 👍🏼👍🏼 so they’ll be on repeat in our house!
Hi there, this sounds perfect for our Keto diet. One question, how many servings does it make? Is it 7 carbs for the entire recipe?
It is 4 servings, so 1/4 of the recipe.
