Blueberry Banana Zucchini Avocado Bread

Hi Everyone,

No need to adjust your screen, yes I am serving you bread with a green tone.

Green bread!  Weird, I know, but don’t let the color fool you, this is the most moist delicious bread I have created in a long time!!  Whats in it to make it turn green?  Avocado and Zucchini!  I wanted bread that I could use up my zucchini and I wanted bread that contained healthy fats, not butter or oil, so in went the avocado.  Basically I call this bread, everything but the kitchen sink bread!

My Husband who doesn’t like avocado or zucchini was terrified to try it.  I told him to try it and he said later.  I went to take my shower and I came back and half the loaf was gone.  I asked did you touch my bread?  He he Yes he said, I had a few pieces.  He said it was really good and the flavor surprised him.  He said he liked that the blueberries popped in his mouth.  He said he never had such plump blueberries before.  I told him that’s because it’s Trader Joe’s blueberries.  He just shook his head.

This recipe makes one big loaf or two fat mini loaves.  I actually had a pinch of batter left over, I couldn’t fill my bread pans any higher.  This recipe is made with fresh blueberries, one ripe banana, one avocado and a little bit of brown sugar.  I tried to make it as healthy as I could.  I’m pretty happy with the nutritional stats of the bread.  12 FAT slices are only 107 calories.  Yes I’ll take two pieces please, and that I did.

The flavor of this bread is sweet, moist and you don’t taste the avocado at all!  You do get a slight taste of banana and honestly I barely tasted the zucchini.  It kind of got lost in the bread.  The blueberries are amazing.  They do pop in your mouth and they stain your hands.  After making the bread my fingers were blue.  I really like this bread and I love the idea of using avocado in it!  I will be doing that more often when making quick breads.  if you never tried avocado in bread, you must try it!!

  1. Best idea ever! Get your veggies and enjoy a healthy, delicious bread, too :)

    Sues

  2. This looks fantastic!! I actually have no idea how to mash an avacado….what could I use to substitute it instead?

    • Hi Samantha! If you want to use an avocado, let it get ripe (turn black) and kind of soft, but not to soft. Then mash it like you would a ripe banana. Other wise I’d use coconut oil or canola oil to sub for it, maybe a 1/4 cup, but I’m not to sure to be honest. Or maybe a quarter cup of soft butter.

  3. It sounds Lovely! Yes…maybe a but weird too with the avocado, but I like trying new things so why not this:-) great inspiration!!

  4. That’s so funny that you husband gobbled up the whole loaf! I’ve never heard of avocados in bread, always learning something new!

  5. Gorgeous bread! I’ve used avo in so many desserts but never in bread-making — must try it b/c it looks sooo moist!

  6. Gorgeous bread, darling! I love the huge chunks of blueberries inside. Mmmm

  7. Ahh husbands-mine would totally do the same! Though he would probably blame the kids on eating half the loaf :) I really need to try avocado in bread. You always have the best making ideas!
