Double Chocolate Avocado Muffins

I was first introduced to avocado as a child. Back then I knew it as ‘Butter fruit’ and they are grown in abundance in my home town plantations. Little did I know back then that, this buttery fruit could be awesome in desserts.

With avocado being the new health food, I thought why not add some into muffins? It’s creamy, smooth texture can easily replace butter while making cakes. This super simple recipe is a double chocolate muffin made with mashed avocado and almond flour.

I used one large avocado, which yielded one cup of mash. I didn’t use any equipment, but a fork to mash it. The mash isn’t completely smooth. Once the muffins are baked, you can find tiny bits of avocado. If you don’t like the bits in your muffin, then go ahead and use a food processor to blend it into a smooth, creamy paste.

When you bite into these muffins, you get a rich chocolaty taste, lovely graininess from the almond flour and those chocolate chunks are to die for! People who are on a Keto diet can replace sugar with any keto sweeteners like Stevia or Erythritol, add keto friendly chocolate chips and Greek yogurt.

Once baked, let them cool completely on a wire rack. These keep fresh in the refrigerator for 3 – 5 days.

I hope you try this recipe and enjoy making them as much as I did.
