Avocados: they seem like they’re everywhere now. They’ve become so popular with the millennial generation that avocado toast is a symbol of the age bracket. The moment we discovered avocados, we started experimenting with them.
Avocado toast is far from the only thing you can do with the fruit (yes, it’s technically a fruit, even though most of us think of it as a vegetable). We’ve found ways to incorporate it into smoothies, sandwiches, soups, and as odd as it sounds, baked goods.
In fact, with its mild flavor and high-fat content, avocado is a perfect baking substitute. More and more recipes are starting to use avocado instead of butter. This includes cakes, cookies, and more. This is a way to make traditional recipes vegan or even add extra nutrients.
If you’re worried about putting veggies in your cake or brownies, don’t worry. Avocado’s flavor tends to be overpowered by stronger ingredients. Its primary role is to provide texture, moistness, and the occasional hint of freshness. In most recipes, no one will ever guess that you didn’t use butter.
Avocado and dessert lovers can now rejoice! We just made dessert (mostly) healthy.
