Guacamole Deviled Eggs

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.

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!

  1. This looks absolutely wonderful! I love deviled eggs and I love guacamole, and this looks like a match made in heaven! Thanks for sharing this.

    • My guess is that they would be pretty much an “serve and immediately” type of item if you want to maintain the pretty color. You could always prep this ahead of time with cutting the eggs, scooping the yolks, and mixing everything together in a bowl except for the avocados (and maybe go ahead and squeeze the limes, but have the juice ready to go in a separate bowl), and then before you are actually ready to serve, just get the avocados added into the mix, and then fill the eggs.

      • These are truly delicious. I don’t care for cilantro, so I added minced onlon instead. If you prep this ahead, keep the pit of one avocado in the mixture, cover with plastic wrap pressed ontop of the mash, and in an airtight container. It helps maintain the color.

  2. I immediately thought of Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs ‘n Ham for the kids! That would be quite a healthy treat.

  3. Thank you so much for such an informative site and your generous spirit. An addition of salsa to the hard boiled eggs is tasty. from Joan
