Typically associated with simple guacamole, avocados are a versatile fruit whose fat content lends itself well to a variety of other dishes besides the delicious staple of Mexican cuisine.

The creamy texture works as a stabilizer for savory pancakes, combining well with caramelized onions and garlic to make small cakes that do not require eggs.

Serve these for a treat during brunch or as a delicious side for a dinner. Create smaller pancakes and serve them with toothpicks for an appetizer.
