With Dr. Oz stressing each time I turn him on about the goodness of this rather fatty green fruit, I thought I’d make something out of it other than the standard guacamole – Don’t know if I have talked about before, but after my third baby, I ended up with a rather sluggish gall bladder and it was very difficult for me to digest any fat – I ended up having violent reactions to fat esp that of avocado – which had been a staple in the house before then – One would be happy right to develop an allergy to fat – well this I can tell you friends, altho I would to lose that muffin top that constantly reminds me of my motherhood status, I would rather not have it go this way – as in developing food allergies, coz many are the discomforts that come along with allergies – Moving to Virginia first made me aware of how allergic I was to pollen, tree pollen to be precise and cats! – I did not know that – And I had the “good” fortune of being bitten by a tick and ended up with Lyme disease in 2007 – That has led to a few freakish annual appearances of swollen joints – Don’t mean to go on about my ailments, but just saying – we deal with all kinds of unexpected issues!
But after 4 years, I have re-introduced Avocado into the home – My hubby and daughter who are the only two who like guacamole usually satisfied their cravings outside or from a dubba from WholeFoods
I thought perhaps baking it would reduce the chance of aggravating or reopening old issues –
The bread was SO delicious and I do believe this recipe is a keeper – I pretty well followed my Zucchini bread recipe and went about it in a similar way, subbing Avocados for Zucchinis. I did not add any nuts or chocolate chips which might have distracted from tasting the avocado
DID I mention that this cake was made FROM Scratch by my darling daughter? She amazed me with her precision and efficiency – Happy she is getting to an age when she can do lots of things on her own – Yes – I got me a sous chef
There you have it mes amiea!
