Avocado Bread

Sometimes, I just need a sandwich.  Or toast.  Or a sponge for my egg yolks.

Bonus, too…this stuff is safe on the 21DSD.  If you’ve been following my little adventure in detoxing on Primal Competitor, you’ve already gotten a sneak peak.  You really can’t tell there’s avocado in it at all–it’s a nice, neutral flavor that suits all of your bread-y needs, while being low carb and high in healthy fats.  It’s got a firm texture that holds together in the toaster oven and soaks up butter, egg yolks, and mayo very nicely.  The next test?  Let’s see how well this stuff supports a burger…

INGREDIENTS

**Printable Recipe**

1/2 c Coconut Flour

1 t Salt

1 t Baking Soda

1/2 c Ground Flax

6 Eggs

1 c Avocado Puree (about 2 large avocados)

INSTRUCTIONS

Make sure your avocado puree is totally smooth…no lumps!

Combine the dry ingredients.  The add your eggs and avocado, beating until smooth.  Pour batter into a greased loaf pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

    How interesting!! Quite a healthy way to “spice” up a bread recipe!

    Do you think it would work with a whole cup of flax meal instead of coconut flour? The price of coconut flour over here is just ridiculous.

      I don’t think so…can you get either almond or arrowroot flour?

      Mmmmm…I’d try all of those! Avocado also has a natural affinity for pecans.

      And add about 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup or honey if you really want to sweeten it up.

    What kind of consistency does the bread have? Every thing I have tried is kind of spongy……thx!

      It’s a little like a quick bread–almost cake-y

    I absolutely love avocados, so in my mind this bread sounded phenomenal, so I just made some & it tasted so wrong to me. I am not trying to be rude, just honest… It just didn’t mesh well with my taste buds. To be totally fair I have never baked with avocados ( I have always eaten them cold) or ground flax, so it is probably because my tastes are not used to those flavors. I really wanted to love it, but it didn’t work out for me.

    Would this work with a cup of gluten-free flour blend in place of the coconut flour and flax seed?

      I think it would, but it might take a little more. I would add a little but at a time until you get a proper consistency

    I love this bread! It is great by itself or with some butter. Or…

    Sometimes I cut it into strips and make inside out wraps, wrapping ham or turkey around it with my favorite sandwich spreads and toppings rolled up inside.

    I just made this bread and it’s yummy! Anyone know how many calories there would be in each slice?
