BEST Avocado Muffins

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.

BEST Avocado 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.

This recipe did not turn out well for me. Burnt on the outside and gooey on the inside. They collapsed and didn't rise. Maybe my baking powder is old? Or maybe they need baking soda? I'm in the US and baked at 400F, which is higher than most muffin recipes.

Jennifer, I am not really sure what went wrong. You mention the baking powder might be old ? That could definitely contribute to the collapse. Also, depending on your baking altitude, the recipe might need adjustment on the oven temperature as well as the time baking (lower temp, but baking a few minutes longer)

Hi, I made them and loved them, though were a little heavy. Your recipe suggests 2 medium-sized avos but in Zimbabwe our avos are huge off our trees in our garden), I did however reduce the quantity to 1.5 of our medium size avocado. It would help me more to have a weight to work with. Do you think you could estimate that for me me. kind regards Verne

An average avocado weighs between 150 and 170 grams ( which is about the size I am using ) Hope this helps :-)

I made these muffins and they turned out really great! And they were more filling than your average muffin. The only change that I made is that I added about a teaspoon of vanilla, and I would highly recommend this addition! I will definitely make these again!

I'll definitely try a batch with some vanilla next time as well, Rashidah !

I got a good deal on some avocardo. So just trying out your recipe now. The batter do look a bit doughy. Hopefully it turns out nice like yours. ? from a fellow SA. X
