I tried avocado bread recently when a loaf was gifted to me. I came up with this recipe which is dense and moist. Made with Swerve® and without the addition of butter, oils, or any other fats for a 'healthier' bread. I did not tell the family the 'secret' ingredient and they all thought it was banana nut bread!

  • Sift flour, sweetener, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a bowl; set aside.

  • Mix avocado, buttermilk, egg, and vanilla together in a separate bowl. Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Stir in pecans. Pour batter into the prepared pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 60 to 75 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Invert onto a wire rack and cool completely before slicing.

Cook's Notes:

Haas avocados are richer than regular avocados and used in this recipe for the natural fats they contain.

White sugar can be used instead of the sweetener, but the calorie count will certainly change.

It turned out great! Perfect way to use up ripe avocados. Only change I made was using 3/4c sugar because I don't have any swerve. Read More

This bread was easy and turned out so delicious. It was moist and tasty. I used sugar instead of Swerve and used the same measurement but I would recommend less sugar. Read More
