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:
- 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.
