This quick-bread is a great way to use up that lone avocado quickly passing it's prime! Not too sweet, pretty color, and no one in my household could guess that it was avocado. It's moist despite containing no oil. Avocados do differ in size, you want 1/2 cup mashed pulp. Walnuts can be substitued for pecans if desired. Number of servings is a broad estimate as it will depend on how thickly you slice it!

This was good. I used half a cup of honey in place of the sugar and added half a teaspoon of vanill and cinnamon. It only needed to cook for 35 minutes.

I love making unique fruit and veggie breads, and this definitely fit the bill. It has a very different flavor that is hard to place, but regardless, this is good stuff! If nothing else, it's a great conversation starter. :) I used whole wheat flour and it turned out a bit darker, but still tasty nonetheless. Do watch the bake time. This yields a smaller bread size than normal and mine was a bit overdone at 40 min. I completely forgot to add the nuts, but I'm thinking I might try poppy seeds next time. Yum!
