- This bread can be used for so many things: eaten as is, for sandwiches, making toast or even French toast!
Key ingredients and substitutions:
- Avocados – the star of this recipe. Use ripe ready-to-eat avocados for this paleo bread. You can’t even taste them and they are full of vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats.
- Eggs – helps to bind the bread together and adds moisture as well as protein. I don’t recommend trying to make this recipe with no eggs or any egg replacers.
- Coconut sugar – a great natural sweetener. Feel free to use brown sugar instead if you are not on a paleo diet.
- Apple cider vinegar – helps to activate the baking soda, allowing the bread to rise nicely. It can be substituted for lemon juice if you like.
- Baking soda – makes the bread rise without any yeast. Do not try substituting this for baking powder.
- Paleo flours – a mix of almond flour, tapioca flour, and coconut flour are used in this recipe. This grain free mix of flours helps to give the bread the perfect texture. Feel free to substitute the almond flour for cashew flour but don’t make any other flour substitutions.
Taste and texture:
This avocado bread tastes nothing like avocados. It’s soft, fluffy and moist with a slightly sweet flavour. The crust also turns out perfectly with a nice firm texture.
How to make this recipe:
First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a food processor, add the avocado flesh, eggs, and coconut sugar. Blend these ingredients together until smooth.
Then transfer the blended ingredients to a bowl and add the apple cider vinegar and baking soda. Then stir in the dry ingredients until you have a smooth dough.
Now transfer the dough to a bread pan lined in parchment paper and spread it out evenly. Bake the bread for 50 – 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted inside comes out clean.
Allow the bread to cool and then slice it into pieces. Enjoy!
- Do not try subbing the baking soda for baking powder. It gives the bread a very weird, acidic flavour.
- This bread freezes really well so feel free to make a double or triple batch and freeze loaves for later.
- I used medium sized avocados for this recipe. If you have small avocados try using 4 instead.
- Make sure the avocados you are using are nice and ripe with soft flesh.
Variations and add ins:
- Instead of almond flour you can use cashew flour.
- Instead of apple cider vinegar you can use lemon juice.
- Instead of coconut sugar you can use brown sugar – just note that brown sugar is not paleo compliant.
- Feel free to add raisins, chocolate chips, or nuts to this bread to give it a different flavour and texture.
How to use this bread:
- Toast it – the easiest way to enjoy this paleo bread is to have a slice right out of the oven or to make toast with it.
- Top with fruit preserves or jam – serve with a natural fruit preserve for a sweet treat or dessert. My blueberry chia seed jam would be delicious on this bread.
- Top with nut or seed butter – serve with your favorite natural nut or seed butter for a filling snack. This macadamia nut butter is delicious on this bread.
- Make your favourite sandwich. Egg salad and BLT’s are my favourite!
- Turn it into French toast!
How to store:
This bread is best stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze it for later.
Frequently asked questions:
Definitely not! I actually tried a batch with baking powder and it tasted horrible! It gives the bread this weird acidic flavour so please don’t try it.
Instead of almond flour you could use cashew flour. Otherwise I don’t recommend making any flour substitutions.
No! Tapioca flour and cassava flour are very different. Cassava flour requires WAY MORE liquids to get the proper texture so if you were to try using cassava flour in this recipe as it’s written you would end up with a dry, crumbly mess.
This avocado bread has 34 grams of carbs, 7 grams of fibre and 27 net carbs per serving, so no, it would not be considered low carb or keto.
I have not tested a vegan version of this recipe so I am not sure if it would work out. If you do want to try making it vegan, I suggest replacing the eggs with either chia eggs or flax eggs. If you do try it please let me know how it turns out.
Nope! I had 4 people test this bread recipe and none of them could tell it was made with avocados.
