Foodie Friday: Heavenly Egg Baked Avocado

This has to be one of my favourite meals recently, it tastes amazing and is extremely beneficial.

Now I know there is a lot of stigma around avocados due to their high fat and calorie levels, but don’t let that scare you! The fat in avocados is a good fat, it helps your heart, skin and so much more!

Avocados are also bursting with vitamins, with nearly 20 packed into just one of them!

This is such a quick and easy recipe, it is heavy on the calorie side but it’s worth it! I usually have this as my breakfast on a busy day so that I make sure I’ve consumed enough to see me through the day.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 avocado (fresh and ripe)
  • 2 medium sized eggs (free ranged)
  • 1 small handful of seeds (plain and unprocessed, this step is optional)
  • Coconut Oil (or any healthier oil)

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line an oven tray with foil and grease with coconut oil.
  3. Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and remove some of the avocado flesh (save for later). Place this on the tray.
  4. Crack an egg into each half of the avocado (some may spill out) and place the remaining avocado flesh on the tray.
  5. Put in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes depending on how runny you want your yolk.
  6. After 15-20 minutes, remove the avocado halves and place on a plate. Mash the remaining avocado flesh with some seeds and place on the plate.
  7. Eat warm and enjoy!
