These Avocado Devilled Eggs take a creamy, whole food approach to classic devilled eggs. Full of flavour and colour, this recipe is sure to become a new favourite.

Devilled eggs. You either love them or you don’t. I personally love ’em and yet they rarely cross my mind as a dish I should whip up, considering how easy they are.

All my life I’ve enjoyed the classic Devilled Egg made with mayonnaise, but oh my goodness – have you ever tried them with avocado instead? I promise you they’re so delicious, and honestly, very comparable in taste and identical in texture. And what’s better about the use of avocado over mayo is that you’re getting a whole food source of fats instead of processed oils in a jar of mayonnaise.

These Avocado Devilled Eggs require no more than 15 or 20 minutes and just 5 ingredients:

Salt & pepper (and optional spice)

This recipe is also fantastic for entertaining, and great for storing in the fridge for up to 3 days for easy snacking.
