chocolate avocado muffins

Thursday, April 21, 2011

Avocados and chocolate? Yep they go together...I promise! I picked up some organic locally grown avocados yesterday and made some yummy antioxidant packed muffins! I was almost sure there were no other weirdos who would put avocados in muffins, but I was wrong. I guess you can put anything in a muffin, even sardines...NO thank you, sardines are staying out of my muffins...but there is an actual recipe if your curious.

What you'll need:
  • 2 ripe organic avocados
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 5 unsweetened baking squares
  • 1 tsp baking powder...I once made a cake and thought "Oh well I don't have baking powder and the recipe only calls for 2 little I will leave it out." Result = flat cake :(
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbs of honey
  • A couple dashes of salt
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil

Mush up the two avocados.

In a large bowl add melted chocolate, olive oil, honey, vanilla, and almond milk.
In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
Mix the avocado mixture with the dry ingredients until you have a nice smooth consistency.

I was a tiny bit worried that these would taste funky..but nope they are delicious!!

I got these all mixed up, then looked back at the recipe for the oven temp and bake time, and its not here! I'm just gonna wing it, lol! and if my taste test of the batter says anything about the finished product, they are seriously delicious1

Hi, love your recipes! I'm wondering what I can substitute the wheat flour with. I'm going no-wheat. I have your brownie recipe in the oven right now, smelling yummy!

I am actually going to redo this recipe and make it wheat free soon! I will post it soon

Hello, I was thinking of trying this recipe, but I don't see an oven temperature and time. Perhaps, I am just missing it ;) I have just begun baking and cooking so I'm scared to fake it. Thanks!

Have you had any luck making a gluten-free version of these muffins? I would love to try it out.

Hi, are these supposed to be unbaked muffins? I don't see any oven temp mentioned here. if this is going into the chiller, how long should they be chilled? Also, as i am going on strict paleo, i want to replace the whole wheat flour with almond meal or coconut flour, or even arrowroot flour. Are these good substitutes.

I actually used almond meal and baked these at 350F, but they still turn out soft, really wet and mushy. Please advice!!
