Strange But Good: Peanut Avocado Sauce

The secret is always in the sauce.

 

Literally.

I am sure someone is going to say they’ve done this before, but maybe not on top of this eggy breakfast item.  I’m not sure if it’s an egg crust or what, but it was good.  And it was made ever more strange with a peanut nutty topping.

Peanut Avocado Egg-cake

 

Peanut flour and avocado sauce.  Avocados are a fairly neutral flavor, and they add amazing texture to foods.  I love to use them in scones, chocolate cake, and shamrock shakes to add healthy fat and a creamy smoothness.  So why not in a sauce?

I mixed it together with a little almond milk and stevia before spreading it across a cinnamon-egg “crust” and adding blackberries and jicama to the top.  I purposefully left little pieces of the avocado in there… you know, for added strangeness.

If you are a texture junkie like I am, you will adore this.  From the smooth spread to the juicy berries to the crisp jicama, each bite is a party in your mouth (that’s what she said).

Peanut Avocado Eggs

Peanut Avocado Eggs

  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1 T peanut flour
  • Stevia, to taste
  • Almond milk (add to desired consistency)
  • 1/2 C egg whites
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • Optional toppings: blackberries, jicama

 

In a small bowl, mash avocado.  Mix in peanut flour, stevia, and almond milk, adjusting to desired consistency.  Set aside.

In another bowl, whisk together egg whites and cinnamon.  Place in a small pan and cook over med-high heat until almost done.  Flip to finish off the top.  It will form a sort of egg white pancake.

Place egg whites on plate, spread with peanut sauce, and top as desired.  Enjoy!

I realize the photo quality is even lower than usual.  It’s been a tough couple of weeks… sorry…

What’s the strangest way you’ve used avocado?

Have you had jicama before?  It’s like if an apple and a potato had a love child.  In a good way.

    im sure this comes as no surprise to you, but I’ve made a peanut avocado mash. but i’ve never put it on eggs, i used it as a spread on toast. but i’m firm believer anything with avocado is amazing, and let’s be real a peanut avocado mix? amazing :)

    1. Laura

      I was specifically thinking of you, knowing you were going to have done something like it! ;)

  2. Choc Chip Uru

    I trust you, if something is good, you will make it and I will try it :D
    It does sound intriguing!

    Cheers

      Thanks, friend! That means a lot. :)

  3. Cat

    Genius! I’ve mashed avo and vanilla whey protein and that’s pretty incredible, but I imagine this is whole new level stuff.

    1. Laura

      You’ve done it with chocolate too, right? That’s my favorite!

  4. Brittany @ Delights and Delectables

    well… I like avocado and eggs… and PB and eggs… so why not??? I love your creativity!

  5. Angela @ Happy Fit Mama

    That is quite genius! I love the addition of blackberries and jicama. Although I haven’t bought jicama in forever.

    1. Laura

      Thank you!!! I love jicama – roasted or raw it’s fantastic!

  6. Jill @ Fitness, Health and Happiness

    You have such a creative talent in the kitchen. This definitely fits the “strange”! So many of my fav foods. How could it not be good!

    1. Laura

      Jill, that is so nice of you. Thank you!!!

  7. Linz @ Itz Linz

    oooh i think i like the sound of peanut and avocado!

  8. Krista @ Tiny n Fit

    I am a firm believer avocados make everything better :) YUM!

  9. Pamela Hernandez

    Oh my that sounds good!

  10. Kierston

    Looks awesome. I would love to eat this. Yummm.

  11. Kaila @healthyhelperblog!

    I like the sound of this! Two rich tasting ingredients all in one dish! YUM!

  12. Parita @ myinnershakti

    NEVER thought to combine avocado and peanuts. But why not!? That sounds really good. I think I’d add a little sriracha for some spiciness. Thanks for the idea!

    1. Laura

      Great idea! I bet this could make a cool noodle bowl!

  13. Heather (Where's the Beach)

    Interesting, I might just actually be able to eat an avocado prepared like this!

    1. Laura

      I thought of you – I bet you’d never notice! Let me know if you brave it. :)

  14. misszippy

    Ok–I’m open to this concept! Love all the ingredients so why not. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  15. Dietitian Jess

    Love this idea! healthy fats make me happy :)

    1. Laura

      Me too! Literally – when I don’t get enough it affects my mood!

  16. Lora @ Crazy Running Girl

    This doesn’t come off as too crazy to me, I’ve heard of way stranger combos! Sounds like it could be really tasty!

    1. Laura

      Hahaha – someone always tells me that. :)

  17. RavieNomNoms

    Sounds pretty amazing to me!

  18. Megan (The Lyons' Share)

    I don’t know why, but the little arrow pointing out the avocado chunk literally has me laughing out loud. I have never tried this but it’s definitely something that I can see in my future! And yes to jicama – good so many ways … your jicama nachos, sliced with cayenne or cinnamon, sliced plain, in salads, and more!

  19. Jennifer F

    It would never be boring to eat at your house!

    1. Laura

      When should I expect you? ;)

  20. Whitney @ To Live & Diet in L.A.

    This is definitely strange! But I’m willing to give it a try since I am obsessed with nuts and avocado, and of course because you said so :)

    1. Laura

      Let me know what you think! <3

  21. lindsay

    what can i use besides the eggs? Just curious if t would work with banana or something

    1. Laura

      Sure! I think it would be good on anything. Even a spoon. :)

  22. Megan @ The Skinny-Life

    I love avocado, eggs & peanut butter. I’ve never had them together, but it sounds worth trying! I must say you’re very creative.

    1. Laura

      Thank you! Please let me know what you think if you do try it!

  23. Shashi @ http://runninsrilankan.com

    I love baking with avocado and I have had it with eggs, but I dont think I’ve ever had eggs topped with peanut avocado sauce and blackberries – definitely strange – strange enough to be good :)

  24. Heather @ Better With Veggies

    This sounds so good!! I’m still on an avocado kick right now, but I haven’t mixed that with peanut flour. Love that idea!!

    1. Laura

      It seems like everyone is on the avocado kick. I think I want brighter foods because I’m craving spring…

  25. GiGi Eats Celebrities

    I am a saucy minx! My secrets are definitely in my sauce!

  26. Ashley P

    I had a peanut butter and avocado sandwich for breakfast yesterday! It’s a surprisingly great combo!

    1. Laura

      I’d add bacon to that deliciousness. :)

  27. Hannah

    You know, thinking it through, if she really did say there was a party in her mouth, she might need to rethink her dating choices.

    1. Laura

      Agreed. And get tested.

  28. Kim @ FITsique

    Sounds delicious. I have been looking everywhere for peanut flour and can’t seem to find it locally. What brand do you recommend?

    1. Laura

      I don’t think you can get it in stores. I buy mine on herb.com. You can use my discount code – USO924 – for $5-10 off your order. :)

  29. Hayley @ Oat Couture

    This isn’t the strangest way but the NICEST way I’ve ever used avocado is in a chocolate mousse! Delish!!

    1. Laura

      Agree! It’s one of my favorite clean desserts. :)

  30. Abby @ BackAtSquareZero

    I have never put them together before, but I do love both peanut and avocado.

  31. Stacy @ Stacy Eats

    I always love seeing your crazy concoctions! This recipe reminds me that I need to use avocados in more things – I usually just crave the full flavor and eat them plain or in guac.

    1. Laura

      Thanks Stacy!! We should get together for some guac soon! Almost patio weather…

  32. Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets

    Wow. Just wow.

    No one more thing. You win.

    1. Laura

      All it was missing was a mimosa. :)
