AVOCADO CHOCOLATE CHIP MUFFINS



Have some avocados that are about to go bad? Did you buy too many because they were on sale? No worries, I do it all the time. Instead of always making guacamole with it, I decided to try something else. I wondered if I could bake something sweet with them. I have been known for adding stuff to my baked goods like apple sauce, beets, zucchini, etc. However those are all flavors that can easily be hidden. I wasn't sure if you could really hide the distinctive flavor of avocado. I decided to do a little digging.

I wasn't the only one that wanted to try this out. I found numrous recipeies that had avocado in them but they still weren't what I was looking for. So I had to do some playing around to find what I needed.

I decided to mix the sugar, swap out some regular flour, add some of this and some of that. They turned out great. They were a hit and no one suspected something was up with them until they noticed a speck of green! Guess I didn't mash the avocado well enough....LOL.

Onto the recipe....

Ingredients: 

2 eggs
½ cup oil
1 ½ cups avocado (mashed)
¼ cup apple sauce
2 cups flour (1c all purpose, 1c whole wheat)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
¾ – 1 cup mini chocolate chips.

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 350
2. Mix eggs, oil, vanilla, and sugar. Mix till creamy.
3. Add apple sauce, cinnamon, avocado, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Combine well.
4. Add flour in 1/2 cup increments making sure to get it all mixed in.
