Author Notes

These tasty muffins pack in a load of antioxidants from the dark chocolate as well as the creamy, rich taste of the avocado. Avocado is considered the world’s healthiest fruit because of its nutrient contents such as Vitamin K, dietary fiber, folic acid, Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and copper. Moreover, avocados provide us with ‘oleic acid,’ a monounsaturated fat that may help lower cholesterol. So, go ahead and dig in to these healthy, tasty muffins! —TheHealthyApple

Amazing! Wildly original and delicious. I would never have thought to cook with avocadoes, much less with chocolate. Loved these. I did use grapeseed oil and reduced the coconut flakes a bit, personal taste. Great recipe. Thank you.

Thank you for these. My son is trying to get me over to almond and hemp milk. I may try these with my gluten free flour because I have lots now. Do you find the olive oil heavy for this? I would wonder if grapeseed oil would work? I pledge to head to a healthier direction right after plum week.
