Even though this past week I made three cakes, yes… three, we’re trying to watch the amount of bread we eat. It is just so easy to make waffles, pancakes, biscuits, muffins, scones, or even egg in the hole or breakfast burritos that it had become second nature to load up in the mornings on a bread-laden breakfast.
Breaking from that hasn’t been as easy for me as I would like to admit. Sure, I’ve been drinking lots of smoothies, eating my yogurt, having a scrambled egg, but I was ready for something different. That’s when I fell for these Baked Eggs in Avocado Cups.
And you know, these baked eggs in avocado cups couldn’t be any easier to make either.
Three ingredients, bake for 15 minutes, and your done!
How simple is that?!

I hope you love this recipe as much as we do!
Now, I think I’ll go see if there is any cake left. It’s all about priorities, ya know.
