**Thanks goes out to Josie for introducing me to the idea!

  • 34cup sugar
  • 1 12teaspoons baking powder
  • 12teaspoon baking soda
  • 12teaspoon salt
  • 1large egg
  • unnamed (1)1avocado, mashed
  • 12cup buttermilk
  • 12cup pecans, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Grease a 9 X 5 inch loaf pan.
  3. Combine dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat together egg and avocado; stir in buttermilk.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and blend well.
  6. Stir in nuts.
  7. Pour into pan and bake 50 minutes to 1 hour, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

The next time I did this for my gluten-free friends and it came out great!

  •  3 cups of gluten-free baking mix
  •  1/2 cup honey
  • 1 12teaspoons baking powder ( I didn’t cut down on leavening as I might with traditional baking mix because of the gluten-free the more leavening the better)
  • 12teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 1 avocado, mashed
  • 12cup buttermilk
  •  1 cup of dried cranberry, raisins, almonds and sunflower seeds (this was a homemade trailmix I had left over)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Line a 12 cupcake pan with paper liners
  3. Combine dry ingredients.
  4. In a separate bowl, beat together egg and avocado; stir in buttermilk.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and blend well.
  6. Stir in trail mix.
  7. scoop into cupcake tin and bake until they are brown and spring to the touch. About 20-25 minutes.

BONUS*******Later you take the pits and rinse them off. Put toothpicks into four sides and hang them so that their root is in the top of a glass of water.unnamed (4) Leave them in a sunny spot and keep adding water as needed.

They will take root in a week or two and them plant them in a pot leaving the top of the pit exposed where the plant will grow. Once the plant is large enough you can put in more dirt and cover the pit.unnamed (3)

  1. Look at me! Frist I am 😀

    Never heard of avocado bread! But I’m willing to give it a try. I don’t suppose it’s similar to zucchini bread? lol I mean, they’re both green:)

    Would love to grow avocados!

  2. This is a surprise. I never heard of avocado bread. I bet it would taste creamy and rich. I have tried to do those pit plants, but never put them in soil. They are beautiful.
