The following items are items that I personally use and recommend to make this recipe.

I brought these healthy avocado deviled eggs over to my family’s Easter brunch.

I got the classic skeptical look I always get when I bring my “healthyish” offerings but was given a chance (because everyone loves avocado). As usual, after the first bite, my family was sold. Every bite with the smooth creamy avocado filling was delicious and satisfying. Healthy swaps don’t have to be boring. Switching out some of the yolks for avocado is simple and flavorful.

I love making extra of these healthy avocado deviled eggs because it’s also a nutrient packed snack. Adding avocado to the egg filling takes it up a level and adds heart healthy fats and micronutrients. Don’t knock it, til you try it.

Pro Tip: The crunchy bacon topping is my favorite but you could also sprinkle some everything but the bagel seasoning on top or extra cilantro for a vegetarian option!
