Ingredients to make avocado bread

  • Avocado: Ripe avocados are key for this recipe. You’ll need two large or three small avocados for this recipe. You can use unripe avocados if that’s all you have, but the bread won’t be as moist.
  • All-purpose flour: You can use wheat or white all-purpose flour for this recipe. I haven’t tried it with gluten-free flour, but let me know in the comments below if you give it a try!
  • Baking powder: Keeps your avocado bread from being too dense and gives it some fluff.
  • Sugar: You can use white sugar, brown sugar, or coconut sugar in this recipe. I’ve even used honey with great results.
  • Egg: Helps bind everything together.
  • Vanilla extract: Gives the bread a delicious flavor and aroma. You can omit this if you don’t have any on hand.
  • Salt: A little bit of salt brings out the flavors in the bread and helps balance the sweetness.

How to make avocado bread

This quick avocado bread is super simple to make. The batter comes together in under 10 minutes, and then it’s off to the oven.

Mix Batter

  1. In a large bowl, use a hand mixer on medium-high speed to cream the avocados and sugar until completely smooth.
  2. At this point, it will look like guacamole!
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla extract.
  4. Whisk until they are fully incorporated into the batter.
  5. Add the dry ingredients to the wet.
  6. Using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula, gently fold in the dry ingredients until no streaks remain.

Tips for making this avocado quick bread recipe

  1. Use soft and ripe avocados. Ripe avocados are key for this recipe. They make the bread moist and give it a delicious flavor. If your avocados aren’t ripe, you can place them in a paper bag with a banana or apple overnight to speed up the ripening process.
  2. Don’t overmix the batter! Over mixing quick bread batter will result in a tough and dense loaf of bread. Stir just until the ingredients are combined – no need to overdo it.
  3. Bake the bread on the middle rack. This will help ensure that your avocado bread bakes evenly.
  4. Line your loaf pan with parchment paper. This will help prevent the bread from sticking to the pan and make cleanup a breeze.
  5. Let the bread cool completely before slicing. This will help prevent your avocado bread from falling apart.

popular substitutions & additions

  • Add chocolate chips. For a delicious twist, add in a cup of chocolate chips to the batter. You can also top the bread with chocolate chips after it’s baked.
  • Make it savory. If you’re not a fan of sweet quick breads, you can easily make this recipe savory by omitting the sugar and adding in some chopped herbs or cheese.
  • Replace 1 avocado with 1 ripe banana. If you don’t have enough avocados or they’re not ripe enough, you can replace one avocado with a ripe banana. The bread won’t be as moist, but it will still be delicious.
  • Use honey instead of refined sugar. For a healthier twist, you can use honey in place of the refined sugar. The bread will be slightly less sweet, but just as delicious.

The avocado bread has a small hint of avocado taste that is not too overpowering and a subtle sweetness from the sugar. It’s a pretty simple bread without any overpowering flavors so spread one of these toppings on top.

how long will avocado bread last in the fridge?

I have actually kept the bread once for 6 days, and it still looked green and tasted good!

Yes! I wrapped it in plastic wrap and then placed it in a freezer bag. It lasted for about two months.

When you’re ready to eat it, just thaw it overnight on the counter or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.

Frequently asked questions

Can I make this recipe without sugar?

Yes! You can either omit the sugar altogether or replace it with a natural sugar like honey.

My avocado bread is dense and heavy. What happened?

If your avocado bread is dense and heavy, it’s likely because you overmixed the batter. Be sure to mix just until the ingredients are combined – no need to overdo it.

Can I make this recipe gluten-free?

Yes! Just use a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend in place of the regular flour. I don’t recommend just using almond flour or coconut flour though.

I don’t have a loaf pan. Can I bake this avocado bread in a different type of pan?

Yes! You can use an eight or nine-inch round cake pan, an eight or nine-inch square baking pan, or a muffin tin lined with muffin liners. You’ll need to adjust the cooking time. Make sure to keep an eye on it if you do switch out the pan.
