BEST 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 fruits or vegetables to live on for the rest of my life, avocados will most definitely be number one.
This Avocado muffins recipe is 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.
The muffins are 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.
However 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 have treat at tea-time !
Which Avocados to use in muffins ?
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.
