Avocado Devilled Eggs

by | Aug 20, 2018 | Gluten-Free, Paleo, Snacks

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 ’em or you don’t. I personally love them and yet they don’t often 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:

  • Eggs
  • Avocado
  • Pickles
  • Mustard
  • Salt & pepper (and optional spice)

This recipe is also fantastic for entertaining, and an all-around great snack. Plus, avocados offer an abundance of nutrition. They’re rich inheart-healthy monounsaturated fats, a great source of fibre, and rich in vitamins A, D, K and E for healthy skin and bones.

    These were delicious! On day 3, I couldn’t bring myself to eat more than one, though, because the avocado had darkened so much and the egg and all the ingredients were so watery. Does your avocado still look good on day 3? It’s not a problem, though, because between me and everyone else in my family, we can finish 10 of these eggs in one day, which is now what I tell them to do :).

      Hey Jen! Yes — definitely wise to eat them ASAP because they certainly become less appealing over time! I’m so glad you liked them, I could eat a million of them haha

    Is there any way to keep Avocados from browning after being cut? I’ve tried lemon juice, I also tried Avocado oil spread on top.

      Hi Kat! It’s a bit tricky with this recipe. You can scrape off a thin layer of brown at the top but ideally I’d suggest eating them all as quickly as possible!
