vegan avocado bread (v, gf)

Processed with VSCOcam with t1 preset

 

note to self: when picking up a bag of avocados from costco, remember to check all the avocados inside. as I’ve mentioned before, my love for costco is endless. but i have learned my lesson about randomly picking up a bag of something and buying it without double checking the contents inside. i got around six avocados for a little over 6 dollars – which is a decent deal. however, i didn’t check the quality of the avocados and when i got home, i discovered that 2-3 of the avocados were semi-smushed and really ripe. my mom and i were forced to eat two that day and i had to quickly think of a way to get rid of the avocados fast.

which is where this recipe came in. of course, the typical “smashed avo on toast” is a delicious breakfast (i enjoy adding a layer of hummus beneath the avocado too). but we just happened to be out of bread that week and i didn’t know what else to make with it. so i google “avocado recipes” and found an avocado bread! the  first time i made it, my avocados were too big and so the oil that  came out of the avocado was too overpowering and the bread turned out to be slightly spicy. it still tasted pretty good though so i decided to share this recipe with you guys!

{recipe} / adapted from mykitchenaffair‘s lime avocado bread

you will need:

  • 1 1/2 an avocado**
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey, or agave nectar if vegan)
  • 1 egg (or 1/2 cup applesauce for vegan option)
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt

instructions:

  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. mash the avocado, then add the honey and stir well
  3. beat in the egg (or applesauce)
  4. add water and mix again
  5. add in flour, salt, baking powder and combine well
  6. bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean!

**note: make sure your avocados are around the same size, and they should both be small-medium because my avocados were huuuge and so the ratio/proportion was totally out of wack!
