Whole Wheat Avocado Cheese Straw

Avacado Cheese straw

Avocado, also known as alligator pear is a large pear shaped fruit having a single seed. They are mostly cultivated in the Mediterranean or tropical climates throughout the world. They are green skinned and have a pear shape. The fruit has a higher fat content than the other fruits. It is fleshy and has a buttery texture. It is loaded with mono saturated fatty acids which is good for a healthy heart. Besides avocados are rich in potassium, fibre, antioxidants and many vitamins like B,K, C and E. It is good in taste and goes well with many dishes.  It is thus used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Avocado is popular in vegetarian cuisine as a substitute for meats in sandwiches and salads because of its high fat content.

The flesh of the avocado generally turns to blacken when exposed to air. Hence sprinkle lemon juice over it to retain the nice green colour.

Guacamole is the dish that comes in our mind when we think of avocados. It is used in many dishes like sandwiches, milkshakes, smoothies, soup, salads,  ice cream or cakes.

As it has high fat content the amount of additional butter or oil in dishes can be reduced and it will yield the same results.

I thus thought of making a healthy version of Cheese Straws by using Avocado and whole wheat flour.

The straws came out really good and I was happy as I had to use less butter. I tried making this with whole wheat flour. They were perfectly baked and were crispy to eat.

Do try this recipe to enjoy the goodness of avocados.
