Regular banana bread gets a boost with avocado in this recipe. I have read about using avocado as a fat replacement in baked goodies and even tried it once, only to be completely thrown away by the result. So for this recipe, I kept the fat and also added avocado and the bread tasted delicious. You can also freeze the extras and pop them in the microwave for a quick breakfast or snack. Chocolate chips attracted the kids who had no idea that the bread had avocado. Overall an interesting bread that we enjoyed. Off to the recipe.
