Can you imagine the rich goodness of avocado in a muffin? It's pretty incredible. Here's a simple recipe for avocado muffins, made with avocado powder.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup avocado powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and avocado powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, milk, melted butter, and sugar. Stir well.
Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients, and pour in the wet ingredients. Slowly fold the two mixtures together, being careful not to over mix. Stop mixing as soon as the two mixtures are fully incorporated.
Scoop the mixture into 12 paper-lined muffin tins. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-22 minutes, or until the muffins are slightly brown on top and firm to the touch. Let the muffins cool for 10 minutes before removing them from the pan. They're delicious spread with butter, or even dipped into a little salsa for a savory snack.
Avocado powder is such a versatile ingredient. Try using it to make the oatmeal and muffins above, and experience breakfast in a whole new way.
