What is the literary equivalent to Avatar: The Last Airbender?

A cozy quest across the world, with a trio of fun characters like Aang (fun-loving and honest, but mischevious), Kitara (responsible) and Sokka (annoying but well-intentioned).

And an enemy that within his own clique is struggling to maintain status and has honorable or understandable motivations.

Just a book with some of those general elements or feelings. Not a literal novelization or anything.

Harry Potter
Mistborn
Dark Tower is like grown-up Team Avatar only without the villains being as well-written

You might want to try The Wheel of Time, it is very centered on the four elements, and has a very unique system of magic. God, it's impossible for me to suggest this book without saying how much I actually HATE the series itself for so many personal reasons, yet I read through the whole thing because damn is The One Power an interesting concept and well developed. Characters are.... well, YMMV.

pretty much anything by Brandon Sanderson is a good read. maybe not always Avataresque but fantastic all the same.

the WoT is what i broke my teeth on with fantasy and is pretty similar to Avatar.
3 mains and a few good secondary characters.. but be prepared for the long haul.

14 books and a prequel, each book is huge, and a couple of the middle books are considered boring.
