Best Avocado Muffins

BEST Avocado Muffins ~ These Avocado Muffins are ideal for breakfast, brunch, lunch or a tea-time treat ! All that's needed is a bit of Butter and you are set !

I am such a huge avocado lover, if I had to choose only a couple of fruit or vegetables to live on for the rest of my life, avocados will most definitely be number one.  These muffins are honestly the Best Avocado Muffins I have had as in ever !

Not only do they taste fantastic, the muffins also look scrumptious with a light greenish color. Not that off-putting green which the kids hate so much, this is more like a pastel color.

I like the Avocado Muffins best warm, with only butter spread {slathered!} over, but a thin slice of Gouda cheese is also nice to enjoy with the muffins.

If you are wondering whether it is a savory or sweet muffin, I would definitely tell you a sweet muffin, but not in the sense of a dessert muffin, like a chocolate chip or strawberry muffin.

These Avocado Muffins are more suited for breakfast, brunch, the lunch box or as a treat at tea-time. Oh, yes, now that I think of it, 100% a must at tea-time !

The best Avocados to use, are the ones just ready to eat, not still hard and tasting like water, but also not over-ripe. Over-ripe Avocados will give the muffins more of a bitter taste and the color is also not very appetizing {these are now the really over-ripe, already blackened flesh inside, ripe}. Any ripe Avocado, which you can easily mash would be just fine.

*The recipe yields 12 - 18 muffins, 18 regular sized, but I prefer to make them a little larger, sort of fill the muffin holes to almost the top and let them bake a little over the muffin hole edges - be sure to spray the top of the muffin pan also with cooking oil if you decide to make the huge ones.

BEST Avocado Muffins

12 - 18 Muffins*


3 cups Flour
1 t Salt
1 TB Baking Powder
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Butter, softened
2 Ripe Avocados, peeled and roughly chopped
2 Eggs
1 cup Milk
2 TB Lemon Juice


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 200 deg C (400 deg F) - spray 1 or 2 muffin pans with cooking oil {12 - 18 holes, depending on the size you want baked}.
2.) In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the Flour, Salt, Baking Powder and Sugar.
3.) Add the Butter to the dry mixture and rub in until it resembles crumbles.
4.) Place the Avocados, Eggs, Milk and Lemon Juice in a blender - blend until creamy and smooth - stir into the Flour mixture until just mixed.
5.) Fill the muffin holes either 2/3 or almost to the full mark - bake 25 - 30 minutes or until done and golden brown.
6.) Remove from the oven - let cool in the muffin pan/s for 10 minutes.

Serve immediately with butter. {unlike most muffins, these Avocado Muffins keep well in a sealed container for up to 36 hours after baking}

  1. Just suggested making a half batch of these to my OH for a lunch. His response was priceless. 'Avocado? Why can't we have muffins with fruit in them?!'
    I think I'll need to discreetly substitute them for a cheese scone lunch as I love that delicate green colour

  2. These are great tips, Linda! I've never tried using avocado in baking, but I've been curious about it for a while. I'm glad to have some advice and a recipe to follow! :) Tea time for sure!

  3. Avocado muffins??? What an awesome idea. Two of the best ingredients all rolled into one!

    Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.

  5. Just wondering if the avocado flavor comes through? These do look tasty!

    1. KC, let me put it this way : if you know there is avocado in them, you will taste only a tiny hint of avocado, if you don't know, it is not so strong to just be "picked" up

  6. I've never made any type of bread or muffin with avocados. How different. Thanks for sharing this on Merry Monday.

  7. I totally agree Linda! Avocados would be at the top of my list too! These muffins look delicious. I have never baked with avocados. I may have to give it a try, thanks for sharing. Visiting from Teach Me Tuesday :)

  8. Wow, I love avocados, but never thought of them in muffins. I am definitely trying these.

  9. Avocados are a newer favorite for me. Although I have always loved them, I am just now realizing their versatility! This recipe goes to show that! :) I can't wait to try this!

  10. I am so intrigued by this recipe! I have gone crazy for avocado lately so I have to try it. I know how good avocado is in baked goods as my chocolate avocado cookies are so good!

  11. I have never heard of avocado in a muffin, but I am perfectly willing to give it a try. I love avocado in pretty much everything else, so why not a muffin?? Leave it to you!

  12. I'm a huge avocado fan - gotta try these! Stopping by from Best of the Weekend!

  13. Avocados are so good for us and I'm always trying to find new ways to use them! I hadn't thought about muffins though, Linda! These sound really good and I love the delicate green colour. Thank you for sharing with us at the Hearth and Soul hop. Pinned, SU and will tweet.

  14. I have never thought to combine avocados and muffins, but I love this idea! Pinning for later! Thanks for linking up at Creative Spark. Hope you'll join us again this week :)

  15. I love the simplicity of these and their pretty colours. I'm not actually an avocado fan BUT after reading your previous comment that if you didn't know it was there you couldn't tell I really want to try these because I know how good for you avocados are!

  16. Ooh these look great! I've made chocolate avocado muffins before but never just avocado, I gotta try this!

  17. This is so CREATIVE! Pinned and stumbled!

  18. Yum! I love avocados too, but never have used them in muffins, I need to try this!

  19. Muffins snacks are so good to enjoy in break times.
