PIN IT HERE TO SAVE THE RECIPE FOR LATER!
This past week my husband challenged me to try eating JUST fruits and veggies.
Hhhhmmm, I think he knows that I have been letting my sweet tooth rule my diet lately.
So last Tuesday I began.
The first day was not really a problem.
But by the end of the second day,all I wanted to do was raid all the Easter baskets and eat every Reese’s egg.
Instead, I went to bed, and the urge went away!
Then it was strange…the rest of the week I didn’t really have a big desire to go all crazy on chocolate.
(I think keeping my coffee/creamer was what kept me going) I also found that if I wasn’t in my kitchen being the crazy baking lady,
there were no goodies to munch on.
But then Friday night came and I just wanted to bake…something…anything!!!
We had some avocados sitting on the counter, so I decided to work them into a “healthy” chocolate muffin.
Now usually we use them in bbq chicken & avocado quesadillas, but I needed chocolate. And fast!!
And adding some other stuff like applesauce, yogurt, and coconut oil…that makes chocolate healthy, right?
Time to get our green on…muffin style.
It is a really good thing that two times the chocolate is getting added to these muffins
because there was no way my kids would have touched this otherwise.
My first batch had some baking issues…
they were undone when I first pulled them out.
So I went ahead and worked on round two with a few variations.
And, boy, am I glad that I did because these are now a family favorite!
Our family thinks these taste just like those amazing store bought muffins that are so rich and decadent.
My daughter says that 7-8 seconds in the microwave will give you that fresh from the oven texture too.
I trusted her judgement on that one…and holy cow!! Freaking amazeballs I tell you!
You just HAVE to give these chocolate avocado muffins a shot!
Don’t let the thought of green
in your breakfast scare you away!
Seriously, all you taste is fudgy chocolate!
Who else wants to eat their fruits and veggies this way with me???
