  • I love avocado on my toast instead of using butter. Will have to try this next time I’m baking

  • Avocado’s are such beautiful food. A bit pity this recipe contains sugar, I would look for a healthier alternative and use probably almond meal instead of self raising flour.

  • Love Avocado but never tried it as a bread. This will be on my ‘to bake’ list (perhaps when avo’s are cheaper).

  • It doesn’t directly appeal to me in this sweet version, think I would rather make it a savoury version and use almond flour to give it a rich taste.
