These stuffed avocados are packed with flavour and healthy fats. Avocados and eggs are two superfoods and staples of a low-carb diet!

Avocados are low in carbs, great sources of heart-healthy fats and potassium. If you just started following a low-carb diet, you may be experiencing "keto-flu." Luckily, you can lessen the symptoms of keto-flu by eating foods high in electrolytes. My tip: eat an avocado and drink a cup of bone broth every day!

Eggs, especially the egg yolks, are high in A, B and D vitamins, choline and minerals like phosphorus and selenium. Because they are naturally high in protein and fats, they will help you stay fuller for longer.

Although eggs got a bad reputation for being high in cholesterol, they do not raise blood cholesterol in the majority of people (studies show that dietary cholesterol does not necessarily raise blood cholesterol). In fact, the liver, which makes most of the cholesterol in our body, can down regulate its production when we eat foods high in cholesterol.

Keep in mind that people with very high cholesterol levels on a ketogenic / low-carb diet may want to avoid eating too many eggs and other foods high in cholesterol (especially those with genetic disorders - ApoE4 gene and hypercholesterolemia).

If prefer fish or other fillings, there are plenty more recipes to choose from:

Ingredients (makes 2 servings)

  • 2 medium avocados or 1 extra large avocado, seed removed (300 g/ 10.6 oz)
  • 4 large eggs, hard boiled
  • 1/4 cup paleo mayonnaise (58 g/ 2 oz) - you can make your own
  • 2 tbsp sour cream or cream cheese or more mayo for dairy-free (24 g/ 0.8 oz)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (you can make your own)
  • 2 medium spring onions (30 g/ 1.1 oz)
  • sea salt and ground pepper, to taste


  1. If you don't have any hard-bopiled eggs, start by cooking the eggs. Fill a small saucepan with water up to three quarters. Add a good pinch of salt. This will prevent the eggs from cracking.
  2. Bring to a boil. Using a spoon or hand, dip each egg in and out of the boiling water - be careful not to get burnt. This will prevent the egg from cracking as the temperature change won't be so dramatic. To get the eggs hard-boiled, you need round 10 minutes. This timing works for large eggs. When done, remove from the heat and place in a bowl filled with cold water. I use my egg timer for that. Creamy Egg Stuffed Avocado
  3. Dice the eggs and finely slice the spring onion.

  4. In a bowl, mix the diced eggs, mayo, sour cream, Dijon mustard and spring onion - leave some spring onion for garnish. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Creamy Egg Stuffed Avocado
  5. Scoop the middle of the avocado out leaving 1/2 - 1 inch of the avocado flesh. Cut the scooped avocado into small pieces. Creamy Egg Stuffed Avocado
  6. Place the chopped avocado into the bowl with eggs and mix until well combined. Creamy Egg Stuffed Avocado
  7. Fill each avocado half with the egg & avocado mixture and top with more spring onion.
  8. Eat immediately or store in the fridge for up to a day. The egg filling can be stored in the fridge in a sealed jar for up to 3 days. Creamy Egg Stuffed Avocado

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

First of all, I love your app and blog, Martina!  Thank you for all the hard work and dedication you put into them!  I'm doing vegetarian keto and there are plenty of recipes on your blog and in your cookbooks, and all of them taste incredible!  As for this recipe, I've made it several times because it's so tasty and easy.  Tonight I used all of the avocado flesh (instead of only the middle of it), made the recipe, then added it to arugula--awesome!  Much like your Easy Avocado and Egg Salad however I liked the flavors even more using this recipe!  Thanks again!

Carrie, thank you so much for your lovely feedback!

Hi, what can I substitute for the eggs? Thanks

You can try some of these other recipes for Stuffed Avocados:

What about paneer instead of feta cheese?

Paneer is quite dry and low in fat compared to feta - it depends on how you plan to use it.

Can we use cottage cheese instead of feta??

Yes you can do that. The difference will be in taste as feta is quite salty.

I'm a little confused about the serving part am I eating one avocado or two per meal?

Hi Briana, the recipe is 2 servings. If you use a large avocado, you will have 1/2 avocado pre serving, while if you use a smaller avocado, you will have 1 avocado per serving. You can go by the weight listed (300 g - that is per recipe) 😊

Can I use tofu instead of the eggs? If so, is any Tofu okay on a ketodiet? Also, can I add turmeric for extra nutrition?

Turmeric is great - definitely! Most soy products are not suitable for a keto diet - you can learn more here: Complete Keto Diet Food List: What to Eat and Avoid on a Low-Carb Diet

This is my third recipe from your vegetarian keto 2 week plan that I've tried. It's so, so good. Very grateful 😊

Thank you, I'm glad you like my diet plan! 😊
