Add Avocado to your Cornbread recipe for a boost of Nutrition #GardenCuizine #NNM

Avocado Cornbread
Simply add chopped fresh avocado to your favorite cornbread recipe for a healthy variation. We tried it last night and everyone loved it.
Our Country Cornbread recipe is posted here on GardenCuizine, only I did not add the chia seeds. Instead, add about a 1/2 cup of chopped, fresh avocado. Use however much avocado you would like, you don't need to measure it. 

Add the avocado after you combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. 
  • Be careful not to over mix
  • Pour into your prepared 8x8 baking dish and bake as directed
  • Cut while warm and serve with homemade hot pepper jelly
Note: cornbread freezes well
