Guacamole Deviled Eggs are a huge hit in our house. The boys (now teenagers if you can believe it!) and their friends love this healthy after school snack. I love that it’s high protein and full of healthy fat.
If you’re looking for healthy St. Patrick’s day recipes, I’ve got you covered with this one! Craving more green-themed recipes? Take a look at my Green Eggs recipe – it’s a super healthy bright green method for making scrambled eggs.
- Cut eggs in half and remove yolks
- In a bowl, mash yolks and avocados
- Stir in cilantro, chives, lime juice, salt, and red pepper flakes
- Scoop filling into egg whites with a 1 tablespoon ice cream scoop
- Refrigerate until serving
- Sprinkle with chili powder
This recipe is based on Elise’s Guacamole Deviled Eggs recipe on Simply Recipes. In my version, I’ve omitted the sour cream, increased the amount of cilantro (who can resist an extra helping of this phytonutrient rich herb that controls blood sugar?!), and used different spices –ones that I keep on hand in my spice drawer. What makes this deviled egg recipe special is that it does not require mayonnaise. The avocados are rich enough to replace it, and add the gorgeous green hue.
I’m not sure what it is about deviled eggs that makes them such a special, festive treat. Maybe it’s that they look so pretty and taste absolutely rich and delicious. If you’re looking for another quick and easy kid friendly snack, try my basic Deviled Egg recipe which is flavored with mayonnaise, mustard, celery, shallots, and parsley!
