Avocado Quick Bread

Avocado Quick Bread

While I often try to make low fat desserts, the mono/polyunsaturated fats in the avocado and almonds are very healthy.  The avocado gives this bread a very unique flavour and colour.  This bread is a must-try if you are looking for something different!!  Click below for the recipe, more photos and nutritional information.


* If you have it on hand, try adding 0.25 cup vanilla (or plain) whey protein powder to the dry ingredients if you are using splenda.  This is added since the splenda is much lighter than white sugar – plus it adds a little protein to the recipe which never hurts!


  1. Preheat the Oven to 375F
  2. Lightly spray a 9 x 5″ Loaf tin with cooking spray
  3. Combine the flour, splenda (or sugar), baking powder, baking soda and orange zest in a large bowl.
  4. Add the buttermilk (or milk + vinegar), egg whites, lime juice and food colouring (if using) to the mashed avocado.
  5. Combine carefully – the mixture will be thick.
  6. Spread the mixture into the greased loaf tin and smooth it down until it is level.
  7. Bake the loaf in the pre-heated oven for approximately 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean
  8. Enjoy!
