Double chocolate avocado muffins

This recipe comes form the muffin tin mania blog.  It was interesting to find out that there is another person who is addicted to his muffin tin :). When I saw avocado in one of the recipes I have decided to try it out. When I tasted the muffins I was surprised not to taste any avocado. Personally I think hiding vegetables in a cakes is a brilliant way to introduce veggies to the children. I have to say my girls had no clue that something healthy is hiding inside their pudding. Those muffins were tasty, very chocolaty we really enjoyed them.
Ingredients for 12 muffins:
  • 240 whole wheat flour
  • 60g cocoa powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 medium -sized ripe avocado
  • 210g maple syrup
  • 175 ml milk
  • 70g coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g chocolate chips
  • 70g walnuts
Preheat the oven to 180C. Line muffin tin with paper liners.

Sift the flour, cocoa powder, cloves, cinnamon, baking powder, soda, salt into a big bowl and whisk well.

Peel off the avocado, remove the stone and put into blender. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil* and vanilla and blend until smooth.

* coconut oil turn into butter in room temperature you have to meld it down to turn it back into liquid

Pour the wet ingredients into dry ones. Stir until just moist. Then fold in chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.

Spoon the batter into baking tin. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes. Remove form the oven and cool down a little bit.

Enjoy !


  1. I do like to hide veggies in dishes for my smallies but I would never think of avocados in muffins! Makes a change from beer...

  2. I see avocado muffins for the second time! Now I MUST TO DO!
