Avocado Chocolate Paleo Muffins


Avocado Chocolate Paleo Muffins

Avocado chocolate muffins that make for an easy paleo breakfast! Gluten free muffins made with almond flour and avocado. Kid approved muffins that taste like brownies!

You know how much I love chocolate.

And today was a party….

I am getting to that stage in work life, where working by myself has become a total bore.

The older I get, the more my introvert scale moves down.

I find myself feeling bored of my own company and wanting to party more.

So, I decided to change things up!

Official news: my sister is now part-time working for Paleo Gluten Free Eats, yahoooo!

She has been my right hand lady and a co-producer for videos (really trying to get behind that trend, aahhhh).

Aliya is working for me behind the set, doing all the video things and helping in SO SO many ways.

I just have to say: I shoulda made that move a long time ago.

It’s so much more enjoyable working with people you love… and my sister and I are best friends, so we have the time of our lives singing and dancing around the kitchen while we work. ๐Ÿ™‚

Today was a little different, because the neighbor kids came over and we had an even bigger party!

Of course, it involved chocolate, because what’s a party without chocolate???

We tried sneaking avocado into the recipe without the kiddos catching on.

So, we blindfolded them, but kids are smarter than they were in the ’90’s I guess, because they picked up on the green avocado in their brownie mix pretty darn fast!

Lucky us, they loved it and the recipe was a hit!

Avocado muffins? yes!

Everyone couldn’t stop eating these tasty chocolate muffins and we had such a blast filming a short video for you guys, so you can see how they are made.

I hope you enjoy these healthy paleo muffins, packed with extra protein from the almond flour and little EXTRA with the avo. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Tried these and it seemed there wasnโ€™t enough liquid, batter was more of a crumble consistency. When baked they were still crumbling and didnt his shape, perhaps the. Was the coconut oil supposed to be melted? Or were they supposed to be compressed into the cupcake pans? Tasty, but diapppointing.

        same here. It is very crumbly before and after baking. I used coconut oil that was not melted and I used almond flour for sure. I was looking forward to this recipe ๐Ÿ™

    Hi there!! Wanted to make these for someone allergic to peanuts and canโ€™t have other nuts (almond flour) could coconut or oat flour be a good substitute? They also canโ€™t have egg and was going to do flax egg instead?

    Are you supposed to get much rise on these? Mine didn’t even fill a cup. The pic looks like they are supposed to rise over the top of the pan like a traditional muffin?

    I made these muffins and they turned it out awsome thank you for the recipe! I used a duck egg since we have regular egg allergies. Then I use avocado oil instead of coconut oil since I cannot have coconut. Instead of the maple syrup I added just a squirt of honey and two packs of stevia. Love love love them!!!

    very very delicious! Plus, nutritious. I love to feed my family things like these:-) I wonder, what happens if I freeze them to have them on hand for busy mornings. Have you tried freezing them?
