Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Generously grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.

In a separate bowl, beat together the egg and avocado. Stir in the buttermilk. Add to the dry ingredients and blend well. Stir in the pecans.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Substituted: 1 tbs ground flaxseed + 3 tbs water for the egg, and in place of buttermilk I combined half of a cup of non-dairy creamer (I’m sure almond or coconut milk would work too) with a small splash of Apple cider vinegar. I also used 1 cup of almond flour and 1 cup of sprouted wheat flour in place of the all purpose. And because I love chocolate so much my last batch I traded the nuts for some soy and dairy free chocolate chips
