    I wonder if these would be diabetic-friendly? I have a diabetic grandson who might appreciate a new snack. Thanks for posting, @Sheldon Scott.

    OK, I had everything but an avocado and a lemon. Piggly Wiggly had avocadoes on sale for 49¢ each and lemons for 49¢ each. I bought 2 avocadoes and 1 lemon. I'm going to make the chips tomorrow. I sure hope they are good after all that money I spent. :D

    I was hoping that nobody would ask that. :D I tried it. It was awful. I have tasted some really bad stuff in my lifetime but those avocado chips take first place. I would think that I did something wrong but I followed the recipe exactly. But all was not a total loss. I made some delicious lemonade from the rest of the lemon. I had forgotten how good fresh lemonade tastes.

    Wellll,.........I regard them similarly to Eggplant, both favorites of my Mother when I was growing up. Well, yuk.

    The avocado consists of 73% water, 15% fat, 8.5% carbohydrates (mostly fibers) and 2% protein.

    Half an avocado (68 grams) contains 109 calories, corresponding to 160 calories per 100 grams.

    Amount %DV
    Vitamin A 7 µg 1%
    Vitamin C 10 mg 11%
    Vitamin D 0 µg -
    Vitamin E 2.07 mg 14%
    Vitamin K 21 µg 18%
    Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) 0.07 mg 6%
    Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) 0.13 mg 10%
    Vitamin B3 (Niacin) 1.74 mg 11%
    Vitamin B5 (Panthothenic acid) 1.39 mg 28%
    Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 0.26 mg 20%
    Vitamin B12 0 µg -
    Folate 81 µg 20%
    Choline 14.2mg 3%

    I conclude high in calories and fat. "Saturated fat is one of the types of fat you need to limit, along with trans fat.
    About 15 percent of the fat in avocados is saturated, with each 1-cup serving of chopped avocado containing 3.2 grams of saturated fat, which is 16 percent of the DV of 20 grams."
