Crispy Avocado Egg Rolls (Air Fryer or Oven)
These easy Air Fryer Avocado Egg Rolls are inspired by the Cheesecake Factory egg rolls, only healthier because they are not fried.

They are also so much cheaper to make yourself! If you like guacamole, you'll love these avocado egg rolls! A variation of these air fryer buffalo chicken egg rolls! The avocado filling is so delicious I would even serve it as a salad. It's made with sun dried tomatoes and red onion, lime juice and cilantro.
The first time I tried these in the Cheesecake Factory I knew I wanted to recreate them. The ones at Cheesecake Factory are served with a tamarind cashew sauce. Rather than making it complicated, I went with a sweet and spicy aioli-esque sauce. With the sauce, it's 4 points for each egg roll. Without the sauce, it's 3 points each.
Variations and Tips
- You can use spring roll wrappers in place of egg roll wrappers.
- Lots of questions about freezing. I have not tried this personally with these eggrolls, but I do this with my other recipes so I think it would be fine. I would freeze them uncooked.
