Ingredients needed

This avocado bread recipe is truly made with just 3 ingredients, plus a little something extra for flavor. Here’s what you need:

  • Avocado: This is a great way to use up any avocados that are getting overripe.
  • Egg: The egg binds the ingredients together and helps the bread bake properly.
  • Cheese: We like to use shredded mozzarella cheese but shredded cheddar cheese or even shredded pepper jack would be delicious!
  • Optional: Add a sprinkle of everything bagel seasoning or salt for a little extra flavor. This is up to you!

How to make this recipe

This bread recipe comes together in about 5 minutes with just 3 ingredients! It could not be easier to make! Here’s how:

Mix ingredients: Add avocado, egg, and cheese into a medium bowl. Mash with a fork and mix until well combined. 

Bake in the oven: Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper. Divide the mixture into 4 balls and transfer onto parchment paper. Use your spoon to form a patty shape. Sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning or salt if desired. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden. 

Bake in the air fryer: Pre-heat the air fryer to 400ºF. Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper. Divide the mixture into 2-3 balls and transfer onto parchment paper.

Expert Tips

  • Avocado: When buying avocados, look for an avocado that is slightly soft to the touch and has a dark green color.
  • Cheese: Freshly grated cheese from a block will yield the best flavor.
  • Make it egg-free: To make this bread without the egg, use a flax egg instead.
