Avocado Blueberry Muffins

With nearly 20 vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, along with “good fats” (poly and monounsaturated fats), avocado is a great replacement for butter or shortening in muffins, quick breads, and even some brownie and cookie recipes. Try it in these Avocado Blueberry Muffins!

  • Avocado Blueberry Muffins
  • Ingredients
    • 1 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1 cup all purpose flour
    • 2 tsp. baking powder
    • ½ tsp. baking soda
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • 1 large ripe avocado, about 8 oz.
    • ¾ cup granulated sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
    • 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
    • 1 ¼ cup fresh or frozen blueberries

    Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a muffin tin with 12 paper liners. 1. In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 1. Spoon avocado into a bowl and beat with a hand mixer until almost smooth. Add sugar and beat until well blended. Add the egg, beating until completely combined. Add the vanilla and the yogurt and mix well. 1. Put the flour mixture into a sifter and sift half of the mixture into the batter and mix until just combined. Sift in the remaining flour and mix until just blended. Gently fold in the blueberries. 1. Using a spoon or an ice cream scoop, divide the batter among the 12 cups. 1. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden tester comes out clean. Let cool in the pan on a rack for 5 minutes before removing.
