Avocado Banana Bread

Don’t knock it until you try it!


This is a tried & true recipe — A fan favorite even! I can GUARANTEE you won’t even know there’s avocado in them!


I actually adapted this recipe with the help of my boyfriend, Blake. He snagged it from an old family recipe book and adjusted it during college for an experiment in one of his cooking courses. Who would have guessed that it would be so well loved!



Not only does this recipe have added health benefits because we cut the butter in half, but it’s super moist and not sticky like a lot of other banana bread recipes.


Pop these in the microwave before you eat them and they are PERFECT.


^ like look how delicious this looks! I eat them for an afternoon snack at work all the time. I'll even bring them for breakfast every once in a while.


A few things that I used for this recipe are linked below:

  • These are my favorite silicone muffin tins. So cute, easy to clean, reusable, and dishwasher safe!

  • I use this kitchen aid mixer and i'm obsessed. It's out of stock pretty often so I’ve linked a few different options for you here.
