Avocado Bread Recipe

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (3 Reviews)

By

Slightly sweet quick bread is an unusual way to use avocados. The buttermilk is a great way to add richness without a lot of fat.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado (1 medium avocado)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Generously grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and avocado. Stir in the buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and blend well. Stir in the pecans.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Yield: 1 loaf

made it vegan, wayyy better, Member jacquestk

I was hesitant to play around with this recipe but I'm sooo glad I did. Easy changes made it healthier and it was so delicious!! I've already made it three times...and I never write reviews but I thought someone out there may be trying to find a good vegan avacado bread like I was! Substituted: 1 tbs ground flaxseed + 3 tbs water for the egg, and in place of buttermilk I combined half of a cup of non-dairy creamer (I'm sure almond or coconut milk would work too) with a small splash of Apple cider vinegar. I also used 1 cup of almond flour and 1 cup of sprouted wheat flour in place of the all purpose. And because I love chocolate so much my last batch I traded the nuts for some soy and dairy free chocolate chips LOL. Yummy!!!!!!
