How to Make My Healthy 3-Ingredient Avocado Protein Bread Recipe

Here are easy, detailed, step-by-step instructions for making my easy avocado bread recipe. The instructions are also repeated in the recipe card at the bottom of this blog post.

How do I avoid a bitter aftertaste?

Everything Bagel Seasoning contains larger flakes of onion and garlic that can burn and leave a bitter aftertaste if sprinkled on top of the buns for the entire baking time.

Seasoning Option 1: Add the garlic powder, onion powder, and salt to the mix. Sprinkle sesame seeds and poppy seeds over the top of the buns before they bake.

Seasoning Option 2: Add the Everything Bagel Seasoning to the tops of the buns half-way through baking. Then they only bake for 10 minutes and do not burn.

Step 1: Prep the Ingredients

Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with oil.

On a plate, mash the avocado with a fork until smooth. Shred the mozzarella cheese.

Whisk the egg in a medium bowl and then add the mashed avocado and mozzarella cheese. If using Seasoning Option 1, then add garlic powder, onion powder and salt to the mixture. 

Stir with a spatula until well combined.

Step 2: Bake the Protein Buns

Divide the mix into four equal portions and drop onto the prepared baking pan. Spread each mound into a circle or square shape about 1/4″ thick. Make it slightly thicker around the edges.

Seasoning Option 1: Lightly sprinkle sesame seeds and poppy seeds over the top of the buns.

Bake for 20 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

Seasoning Option 2: Bake the buns for 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and sprinkle with Everything Bagel Seasoning. Then bake for an additional 10 minutes until the tops are golden brown.

Remove the bread from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Then, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Bake in an air fryer: Divide the mixture into 4 portions and spread on a piece of parchment paper cut to the size of the air fryer basket. Bake at 400ºF for 10 minutes. Then carefully remove the parchment paper from the basket, flip the patties over with a spatula, lower the parchment paper and buns back into the air fryer, and bake for another 4 minutes or until golden brown.

Helpful Recipe Notes

Ripeness of Avocado: Ensure your avocado is ripe for easy mashing and a smooth texture in the bread. An underripe avocado may result in a chunky and less cohesive batter.

Texture Variations: For a slightly denser avocado bread, you can add a tablespoon of almond flour or coconut flour to the batter. This will also add a bit more fiber and structure to the bread.

Eggs: Pair your avocado bread buns with scrambled, poached, or fried eggs for a protein-packed breakfast or brunch. The creamy avocado and cheesy buns perfectly complement the rich flavor of eggs.

Avocado and Tomato Slices: Enhance the avocado flavor by adding slices of fresh avocado and juicy tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper for a simple yet delicious topping.

Turkey or Chicken Slices: Add slices of turkey or chicken breast for a protein boost. To make a satisfying sandwich, add a slice of cheese and some leafy greens.

Cucumber and Radish: Layer thinly sliced cucumber and radish on your buns to add crunch and freshness. A sprinkle of salt and a squeeze of lemon juice will elevate the flavors.

Hummus and Veggies: Spread a generous layer of hummus on the buns and top with sliced bell peppers, cucumbers, or carrots for a plant-based, nutrient-dense snack.

Grilled Vegetables: Serve the buns alongside grilled vegetables like zucchini, eggplant, and bell peppers for a hearty and colorful meal.

Soup or Salad: Pair the avocado bread buns with a bowl of soup or a fresh salad. They make a great side dish to complement your main course and add a dose of healthy fats and protein.
