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!

This was a tasty, unique recipe. I made as is using powdered buttermilk. Very different; have most of it in the freezer to pull out later. Thanks for posting!

That was such a tasty suprise. I liked it because it wasn't too sweet I think it would be a perfect compliment to a chicken salad or fruit salad.

oh my. I have never thought about using avocado for a bread. it gives a really nice flavor and aroma! love it! however I changed the ingredients measurement a bit. I halved the recipe, used 1/3 cup of mashed avocado, only 1/4 cup sugar, and (1/4cup + 3 tbs) buttermilk because the dough was too dry at first. baked them on muffin pan for 40 minutes and they turned out beautiful. thanks for the recipe!

Outstanding!! My bread looked exactly like the one in the picture. The crust was crunchy and golden sweet. The inside was a beautiful color. My brother who doesn't like anything i bake loved it! Thanks for sharing this. And it only needs one bowl to make! Saves me the mess. Since i didn't have any buttermilk, i substituted mine with half a cup of 1% and a teaspoon of lemon juice. It still turned out fabulous! I will be making this again because my father loves avovados and bread. to put it in one would be he dream.

I made this for Thanksgiving at my aunt's house (I was asked to bring nut breads) and I offered a prize to anyone who could identify the secret ingredient that made the bread slightly green. They guessed everything from zucchini to asparagus to brussel sprouts, but nobody got it. But once I told them, they all said, "Ah, ha! Fantastic bread!" I substituted walnuts for pecans, but otherwise followed the recipe precisely. It yielded a moist, sweet pretty bread. :o)

I mixed this exactly as the recipe states, minus the nuts. It didn't get all pretty like yamakarasu's picture. It was dry, lacked flavor. I was disappointed. But next time I am going to try a large or extra large Haas avocado and see if that helps. My kids liked it.

We liked it - I would have loved it if it was even greener!
