Avocado Walnut Bread

Avocado Walnut Bread

Just like banana nut bread, but without the bananas! This bread is super moist, with a satisfyingly crunchy crust, and a slightly green crumb.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 1 9x5 loaf


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup mashed avocado (About 1 avocado, but grab extra just in case!)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 F and lightly grease a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • In a smaller bowl, beat together the egg, avocado, and honey. Stir in the buttermilk.
  • Add the avocado mixture to the flour mixture, then stir to blend evenly. Stir in the nuts, being careful not to overwork the batter, then pour it into the prepared baking pan.
  • Bake until it passes the toothpick test, about 50 minutes.
