Aaaa..vocado Mini Muffins

These mini muffins will make you say, “Mmm…”!

That is because everyone in my house couldn’t guess the magic ingredient to make these muffins a smidge green.  I heard that substituting avocado in your basic banana bread recipe is really delicious and I just had to try it!  I was pleasantly surprised, because it gave the muffins a nice creamy and subtle flavor.  The spices and sweetness from the raisins and mini chocolate chips complemented them perfectly.

So easy and a great way to add this super fruit as a yummy treat in your kid’s lunchbox!

  1. I’ve seen quite a few baked goods with avocado lately, but never a muffin! Those look great! I wonder too if you could even eliminate the butter and add even more avocado since it is so high in good fats.

    1. BB, I like the idea to cut the butter and replace with more good fats! I will have to experiment…I wanted to make another batch next week for back to school! Thanks for the idea 🙂
