Fresh, tart, slightly creamy, and leaving you feeling guilt free after eating one or two... or three of these Wild Berry Avocado Muffins. Great for an on-the-go breakfast, or as a sweet snack later in the day.
One thing is certain: you avoca-don't want to miss this recipe!
I subscribe to a produce delivery service and ended up getting a few avocados in my box two weeks in a row. I had no idea what to do with them. Typically, I end up making guacamole, eat it as a side to my morning eggs, or add it to a sandwich, but I wanted to try something new. Being the baker I am, I decided to use avocado as a butter replacement for these muffins.
What I love about avocados is their delicate flavor, but it also makes their presence (you know, beyond the green tint) very hard to detect. So to address the skepticism of all those avo-critics out there, I promise the flavor is mild enough not to upset you. The avocado's main purpose is to add creaminess and moisture. It also helps to make the muffins just healthy enough for you to eat two without feeling too guilty 😉
What is especially great about these wild berry avocado muffins is that they still retain the rich, buttery flavor we all love. The explosion of fresh berries also makes this a delightfully fruity treat to kick off the day.
