I posted on Instagram yesterday that the #1 questions I seem to receive as a food blogger comes up almost weekly:

“What on earth do you do with all of that food you cook?!”

I tell them the answer is simple:

I share.

It’s true that sharing is caring.  But now that I’m a full-time food blogger usually cooking multiple recipes a day for the blog (or freelancing projects), I’ve learned that sharing is also pretty much essential.  There is so much food coming out of this kitchen!!

To be sure, I always keep a portion or two of all recipes to sample and enjoy myself.  But thankfully my loft building happens to be half full of hungry bachelors.  (A definite score for this food blogger!)  So when a new recipe is photographed and ready to go, all I have to do is send out a few texts until someone shows up at my door hungry with a little tupperware container to go.  :)

It’s a total win-win!

My other willing taste-testers are the guys at the coffee shop next door.  Usually that means the guys who happen to be working at the time.  But when I took a plateful of these blueberry avocado muffins over for taste-testing the other day, my friend Dane happened to be hanging out there with a friend saw them first and jumped at the chance to taste-test.

I warned him that there was something a little “different” about these muffins with the mysterious green hue, but he wasn’t deterred and dove in.  Turns out that he and everyone else who tried these avocado muffins — myself included — loved them!

I have to admit I was a little curious about how avocados would change a classic blueberry muffin.  But after having baked with avocados before in brownies and cookies, I knew that they are a great substitute for oil and also lend hints of the creamy, delicious avocado flavor to any baked good.  So I was excited to give these a try!

Sure enough, these blueberry avocado muffins turned out to be completely wonderful.  They were moist, light, and literally overflowing with fresh blueberries.  And while the avocado flavor was not predominant in the least, I loved the little hint that came through with each bite.  I also couldn’t resist and topped these with my favorite crumble for a little extra muffin-y sweetness.

SO good.  And even more good for you, with all of that avocado in place of oil.  I already can’t wait to make these again!

Muffin Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)

  45. Hi all,
    usually cookie recipes replace half the fat with avocado and add the other fat as well. You can use 1:1 ratio for substitution.
    I like this recipe bac. I don’t have to use butter or coconut oil. I replaced the yogurt and egg with 1 c. pureed tofu, and they came out fine, just not as green as in these photos. Next time , more avocados. Ciao!

  46. Roughly what’s the weight for the avocado? Or in cups maybe? I’ve got two small ones need using up.
