Why You Will Love This Recipe
When it comes to cannabis edibles, we immediately think of sweet treats like cannabis brownies or chocolate chip cookies.
But recently, I’ve had more and more requests from my Well With Cannabis Community for more delicious, healthy cannabis recipes.
Thankfully, there are so many ways to made delicious edibles beyond just baking sweet treats.
These cannabis-infused avocado deviled eggs are a savory, mayo-free, high protein, wholesome snack that is naturally gluten-free, low-carb, and keto-friendly all wrapped up in one delicious bite-sized serving.
Plus, this comes complete with step-by-step instructions for the cooking process and multiple cannabis infusion options to fit any taste and tolerance.
Below I will go over the most delicious and versatile ways to infuse these deviled eggs and take your homemade edibles to the next level.
- Eggs – 8 large eggs, farm-fresh, are perfect
- White vinegar – or white wine vinegar, this key ingredient will help your shells peel of easier
- Kosher salt – this is to be added to the water for cooking, not the filling – it will be too salty
- Avocado – our plant-based alternative for mayo in this recipe. If you don’t like avocado, just swap in a few tablespoons mayonnaise
- Lemon juice – to keep the avocado from turning brown
- Cannabis flower – find one of the many alternative infusion options listed below
- Spices: salt or cannabis salt, ground cayenne pepper, ground garlic powder, ground turmeric, ground paprika
- Optional garnish: hemp seeds and micro-greens
Note: a complete list of ingredients with amounts and printable instructions is located in the recipe card below.
- Step 1– In a large 6-quart stockpot, carefully place eggs in the bottom of the pan. Add enough water to cover the eggs completely.
- Step 2 – Add the vinegar and kosher salt to the water and place the pan over medium-high heat.
- Step 3 – Bring the water to a boil. Once at a rolling boil, set a timer and allow the eggs to boil for 5 minutes.
- Step 4 – After 5 minutes of boiling, turn the heat completely off and let the eggs sit in the hot water for another 5 minutes.
- Step 5 – After five minutes, drain the water and run the eggs under cold water or place them in an ice bath to cool. Once cool enough to handle, peel the shells off, rinse, and slice the eggs in half. Remove the egg yolks and set them aside in a small metal bowl.
- Step 6 – While the eggs are boiling, put the avocado and lemon juice in a medium bowl and mash well with a fork.
- Step 7 – When the eggs are boiled and ready, add the reserved yolks to the mashed avocado mixture. Mash yolks and all ingredients together well with a fork.
- Step 8 – Add the rest of the ingredients: decarbed cannabis flower, salt, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, turmeric, paprika, to the bowl and mix well. Taste-test the mixture and add more seasoning or lemon juice as needed.
- Step 9 – Using a pastry bag, ziplock bag, or even just a spoon, transfer the avocado mixture into the reserved egg whites.
- Step 10 – Garnish with hemp seeds and micro-greens if desired. Enjoy!

This recipe is best enjoyed immediately. If storing for future use, be sure to store the prepared eggs in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Avoid leaving the egg recipe out at room temperature for any period of time.
Alternate Cannabis Infusion Options
Just like all things cannabis, there are many different ways to infuse this delicious classic recipe.
Decarbed Cannabis Flower
Adding ground decarbed cannabis flower to this recipe is just like adding ground oregano or any other spice.
However, to experience the benefits of activated THC or CBD, cannabis must first undergo a process called decarboxylation.
If you’ve never gone through the process before, have no fear, decarbing really is simple. You can learn how to do it in an oven or Instant pot.
This recipe calls for 1 teaspoon of ground, decarbed cannabis flower, but you can adjust this as needed to suit your needs.
Don’t forget to keep track of the potency of your starting material if you want to use the edible dosage calculator.
Kief is the fine, powdery substance that accumulates at the bottom of a grinder or other cannabis container.
Because of this, you may be able to use small amounts of it in this recipe, or more, depending on the effect you’re looking for.
Remember that you still need to decarb the kief just as you would traditional flower.
If you’ve never worked with kief before, you can get my full guide to decarbing and making edibles with kief here.
Leftover Cannabis Pulp
Many people tend to throw out these cooked leaves after extraction, but I recommend saving them, especially for a full-spectrum experience.
The leftover leaves are not that potent after the infusion process has taken place, but they contain beneficial nutrients and even a few remaining cannabinoids.
Plus, the terpenes in the cannabis pair well with the terpenes found in the other herbs and spices used in this recipe.
As long as you like the taste and enjoy it, it’s great to reuse and recycle cannabis plant byproducts wherever possible.
If you haven’t already, I do recommend grinding down the leftover pulp to a more fine consistency so it blends into this recipe nicely.
I recommend adding just 2 teaspoons of leftover flower pulp in addition to the other ingredients of this recipe and going from there.
Keep in mind, this is a low dose option.
One of the easiest ways to make infused foods is with cannabis concentrates.
These are the most convenient, easy-to-use, pre-prepared concentrated products for cannabis infusions.
Because they are concentrated, you only need to add a tiny bit to each recipe to get the experience you are looking for.
Because you only need to add a tiny bit, cannabis concentrates will not disrupt your food’s volume, texture, or flavor.
For this reason, cannabis concentrates are the perfect way to infuse these cannabis deviled eggs.
While THC-dominant cannabis concentrates must be purchased at a recreational or medical dispensary in a legal state, CBD-dominant cannabis concentrates can be purchased from my shop here.
Full Extract Cannabis Oil (FECO)
Full-extract cannabis oil, also known as FECO, is a concentrated, whole-plant, full-spectrum cannabis extract.
FECO is a powerful concentrated cannabis extract that interacts with our own endocannabinoid system.
Because of its potency, a few drops may be all you need for a perfectly infused deviled eggs .
Simply stir in your FECO after preparing the avocado-yolk filling.
Notes and Expert Tips
- Fresh eggs tend to have a more difficult time peeling compared to older eggs
- To make the process extra easy, prepare your filling in a food processor or with an immersion blender and then transfer it to a piping bag for easy filling of the egg white
- Feel free to play around with the filling to make it your own! A teaspoon of dijon mustard or ground mustard, some fresh lemon juice, green onions, even hot sauce can be a delightful way to customize your deviled egg recipe
- Because each person has a different endocannabinoid system and responds to cannabis differently, it is important to add an appropriate amount for your personal tolerance. Be most mindful about the mg THC you’re adding, and use the edible dosage calculator if you need it
- Different cannabis strains will have a different potency of the weed, so be mindful about how much you are adding, especially if you will be eating several halves for an entire meal
