Chocolate Avocado Muffins

No Butter? No Problem!

I tried a recipe promising yummy muffins replacing the fat in a muffin recipe with avocado. The result was a little strange. So I decided to use my go to muffin recipe and make my own avocado muffin experiment. 4 mini muffins later, I decided that my second attempt was quite successful.

Ingredients

  • 1 avocado
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp instant espresso powder
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking power
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips

Directions

  • Beat the avocado in mixer to mash, then add wet ingredients and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until blended (do not mix too much, just until blended thoroughly). Add chocolate chips.
  • Spray or line muffin tins, fill 3/4 full. We made 24 mini muffins.
  • Make 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
