How to Substitute Avocado for Butter.

August 8, 2012 By Davey Wavey 8 Comments

If there’s one ingredient that’s always stocked in my kitchen, it’s avocado. Avocados are full of heart healthy fat, yummy flavor – and I just can’t get enough.

That’s why I was excited to learn that avocado makes for a great butter substitute in baked goods. Doing so dramatically reduces the saturated fat content while still keeping the food both delicious and rich. And fear not: Substituting with avocado won’t turn your banana bread or chocolate cookies green or dramatically change the flavor; you’re only using a small amount.

Here are the tips:

When substituting avocado for butter, a one to one ratio is recommended. A tablespoon of avocado replaces a tablespoon of butter.

Mash up the avocado to make it as smooth as possible.

Because avocado is a bit drier than butter, you may want to increase the wet ingredients slightly.

Many avocado enthusiasts recommend replacing half of the butter with avocado. In other words, if your recipe calls for four tablespoons of butter, replace it with 2 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of avocado.

If you’re fully replacing butter with avocado, reduce your cooking temperature by 25 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent burning or browning.

Give it a try. It’s a small but mighty substitution – and every little bit counts! When you make small changes over and over again, it leads to big results.

Bon appetite!
