I just recently came back from vacation and for some reason my creative flow has been somewhat blocked. Usually it just the opposite. So instead of writing nothing and not wanting to continue feeling guilty everyday that goes by without posting, I decided to share these delicious avocado and banana muffins I made a few months ago… let me rephrase… I don’t still have the muffins (Ewww) so I can’t actually share them with you but I will share the recipe.
If you’re like me you love a little sweet every now and then… (for me it’s more every now instead of every then… but don’t judge). Anyway, I had a few over ripe bananas lying around and a ripe avocado. I hate wasting food so I started looking for ways to use the two fruits together… yes… avocado is a fruit… a berry no less! Who knew?!
I used this recipe from http://www.allrecipes.com for the base but made a few changes. I was really surprised they came out so well… moist, not too sweet and not so bad for you either.
I cut the flour from 2 cups to 1 cup but added 1/2 cup of oats and 1/2 cup of rice flour.
I switched out the 1/2 cup milk for 1/2 cup almond milk and didn’t use as much sugar a little under a 3/4 cup of a mixture of white and brown sugar.
I also added 1 tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp of ground ginger. The recipe called for walnuts but I didn’t have any walnuts 🙂
I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment and let me know if you decide to make them and any changes you made.
Until then… Be Well!
