Better for You Avocado and Banana Muffins Recipe
Do you believe it was only a little more than a year ago that I tasted my first avocado? Seriously, I must have lived a a deprived world since my mother never cared for the fruit. She claims it is tasteless so she never Incorporated it into our meals. As a a young adult, I never even had the urge to try it, and it was never on my radar. Now that I have kids, one day I decided to try the unique fruit and was in love at first bite.
Now, I typically enjoy my avocado as the star of guacamole, or sliced in salads, or sandwiches. I have never once tried baking with it until today. Since I am looking to have a healthier New Year, I wanted to try a batch of muffins that incorporated avocado as an oil and butter substitute. I love banana muffins and have several recipes that have been in my family for a while. I decided today to experiment and was super happy with the results, and taste of my avocado and banana muffins.
The first thing I noticed about these better for you avocado and banana muffins recipe is that they do have a slight hint of avocado flavor. No, they do not taste like guacamole so don’t fret! The sweet, and moist banana flavor is prominent enough to be the star of the show.
