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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ™‚

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Generously grease a mini muffin pan with coconut oil.
  2. In a food processor blend all ingredients until smooth (except chocolate chips). Use a small ice-cream scoop and fill the muffin pan with batter, then sprinkle with mini chocolate chips (optional) and bake on 350F for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick when inserted to the middle of a muffin comes out clean.

    Tried these and it seemed there wasn’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 πŸ™

    I have made these 3 times now, all double batches, and love love LOVE THEM! I have shared them with friends who have also loved them and wanted the recipe. This recipe was printed and put into my recipe binder. Delicious! No changes needed.

    Hi there!! Wanted to make these for someone allergic to peanuts and can’t have other nuts (almond flour) could coconut or oat flour be a good substitute? They also can’t have egg and was going to do flax egg instead?

  4. 21

    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?

    This so didn’t work for me. It was super crumbly and I had to add about 1.5 extra cups of water and then it looked like the consistency of meatloaf. And they tasted so bland and stuck to the roof of my mouth.

    This is my 3rd time making these muffins. Make a double batch each time. My little kids like them and my big kids. Didn’t change anything in the recipe. Thanks for an easy paleo muffin recipe.

    These are absolute perfection and so easy to make using a food processor!! Thanks for this recipe πŸ™‚

    I saw some people had issues with these being too dry but mine were quite moist. My avocado was pretty squishy so I’m not sure if the ripeness makes a difference. I also baked them in a large muffin tin for 25 minutes so this could be a factor.

    This looks like a great recipe! I am allergic to coconut and am wondering what you would suggest as an oil instead of coconut? I tend to cook with either ghee or avocado oil but am not sure how well either of those would be when baking. What do you think?

    We love these muffins! They have become a staple in our home. Perfect for a sweet treat in the kids lunches. They ask for these all the time!

    These are so yummy. My son and I love these. I have made them several times as a healthier choice for a chocolate snack! Thank you for sharing this. I think they are perfect!

    I made a double batch of these today and they turned out perfectly. Something about avocado and cocoa together makes the chocolate flavour more intense, much to my family’s pleasure! I melted my coconut oil for the recipe, as I needed some to line the mini muffin pan. Checked them at the 20-minute mark, but they were done after 25 minutes. Great recipe!

    Just made these, doubled the batch as only had full size muffin tins. Perfect. Took 25 mins in my oven. My oven runs very hot! Made them for my mums birthday today. Thankyou for the recipe! My new favourite recipe. Jen xx

    I added about 3 tbs tapioca and 1/2 a tsp xanthiam gum as I find they work really well with almond flour. I did add a little more water and maple syrup to compensate and stired about 1/2 cup of choc chips into the mixture rather then on top. Baked about 40 minutes. They have just come out of the oven, have risen beautifully and smell amazing! Can’t wait to dig in!
