For the almond flour version, you'll need:

1 Cup (100g) almond flour

3 Teaspoons (8g) xanthan gum

6 Tbsp (60g) hot water

And for the coconut flour version: 

Just less than 1/2 Cup (50g) coconut flour

3 Teaspoons (8g) xanthan gum

7-8 Tbsps. (75-90g) hot water


Frying Method:

  1. Place almond flour (or coconut flour) and xanthan gum in a mixing bowl and mix well. 
  2. Add in hot water and mix/knead the dough until all the ingredients are blended together - it will be very sticky.
  3. Leave the dough to rest for 15 minutes.
  4. After it rests and sets, you can roll it out into the shape of a rectangle between 2 sheets of parchment paper until it reaches 1/4 cm in thickness.
  5. Then when you've got it rolled out, cut it into about 25-30 slim strips (french fry shapes).
  6. Add in a generous amount of oil (enough to cover the fries) to a medium-sized pan and put it on medium to low heat. 
  7. Gently place the dough strips in the pan and fry them till they are golden brown on all sides.
  8. Transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to soak up any extra grease.
  9. Sprinkle salt on the fries and enjoy!

Oven Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (or 200°C). 
  2. Place the dough strips on a baking tray (lined with a baking sheet or parchment paper and greased with oil). 
  3. Brush a generous amount of oil on top of the to-be French fries and bake until the fries are golden brown (10-15mins) - Toss them around every 5-ish minutes to make sure they bake evenly on all sides.
  4. Transfer the fries to a plate lined with paper towels (to remove access oil). 
  5. Sprinkle with and enjoy!
