Avocado Bread Recipe Fixings

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.


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

In a large bowl, use a hand mixer on medium-high speed to cream the avocados and sugar until completely smooth.

At this point, it will look like guacamole!

Add the eggs and vanilla extract.

Whisk until they are fully incorporated into the batter.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet.

Using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula, gently fold in the dry ingredients until no streaks remain.

Bake it

Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Tips For Making Avocado Bread Recipe

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.

Don’t overmix the batter! Over-mixing a 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.

Bake the bread on the middle rack. This will help ensure that your avocado bread bakes evenly.

Line your loaf pan with parchment paper. This will help prevent the bread from sticking to the pan and make cleanup a breeze.

Let the bread cool completely before slicing. This will help prevent your avocado bread from falling apart.

Addition to Add

Add chocolate chips. For a delicious twist, add 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 bread, 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 refined sugar. The bread will be slightly less sweet, but just as delicious. I have also written an article on Bread Recipe Chia Seeds.

How to Store?

This avocado quick bread can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap for up to four days.

To reheat, simply pop a slice of avocado bread in the toaster or microwave until warmed through. You can also reheat the entire loaf of bread in the oven at 350°F for about 15 minutes.

How Long Will Avocado Bread Recipe Last?

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


There you have it – a quick and easy avocado bread recipe that is sure to please! With only seven ingredients and minimal prep time, this recipe is perfect for busy weekdays or when unexpected guests drop by. Give it a try, and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Can I make this recipe without sugar?

Yes! You can either omit the sugar altogether or replace it with 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.
