I have FOUR avocado trees in my yard, and over the course of my time in this house, they have given us more than a lifetime supply of guacamole. This year I did not want to waste a morsel of the “meat” and so I got to thinking…how can I use up these avocados (and get my kids to eat them as well?!!)
If you are hesitant to go out on a limb and try these, let’s remember how healthful these ancient fruits really are. I am not typing a bunch of sentences to convince you. So, I will give you a few key words that may motivate you to grab some off the trees that you have in your yard, and get to baking: Superfood, Antioxidant, Potassium, Folate, Oleic Acid, Lutein, Satiety, Caloric Density, Not Eggs.
These taste like avocado, but I like that. They are a great base for mix-ins: ground breakfast sausage, green onion, cheese, bacon, tomatoes (chopped & drained), even chocolate chips. They are an awesome alternative to egg muffins… My kids think they are pretty good, but they liked them the most with chocolate chips. We are going to call that a win when it comes to getting them to eat well. 🙂
2 ripe avocados
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
2 1/2 cups nut flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
OPTIONAL: 1 cup of mix-ins of your choice. (I like cheddar/bacon the most, kids liked chocolate chips)
With a hand mixer, mix up the avocados, oil and water until smooth and shiny. Then add in the rest of the ingredients and mix until you have a nice batter. Stir in your mix-ins.
Bake at 350 for 23-25 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
Enjoy real food!
