Avocado Bread

Avocados are Loaded With Heart-Healthy Monounsaturated Fatty Acids. In fact, 77% of the calories in it are from fat, making it one of the fattiest plant foods in existence. But they don’t just contain any fat… the majority of the fat in avocado is oleic acid. Which is a great type of fat.. in moderation.

I was at my local cafe getting my regular herbal tea (Raspberry & Hibiscus.. I highly suggest you get your hands on some) and i noticed an avocado loaf bread and just thought it was a fabulous idea.

I went home and tried to find a way to make this delight, and after much of a trial and error process, the recipe is here! I wanted to give my recipe something extra special, so i decided to top one of my loafs with blueberry puree and the other with chopped banana…I honestly couldn’t tell you which one is better.. You’d have to try them both!

This recipe makes 2 loafs. You can half the recipe or make both and freeze one.. They freeze amazingly for up to 1 month.
