I found this recipe of Avocanana Bread on a pack of avocados and was curious to try it.
Avocanana Bread is the combination of avocado and a classic banana bread. A part of oil or butter is substituted with creamy avocado, which makes a delicious and moist treat with good fats.
My family really enjoys this healthy alternative. If you have a picky kid, you do not need to tell them the ingredients.
Avocanana bread is a great start for breakfast, tea time or snack.
