Busy mornings? Try a make-ahead, grab and go breakfast like these Chocolate Avocado Blender Muffins. Start your day the right way with these healthy muffins. Gluten free and low sugar! Perfect for back to school.
We are getting soooo close to meeting our baby! I’ve been working on getting everything ready for his arrival. In addition to making a few freezer meals, I’ve also been freezing some breakfast or snack items. I baked up a bunch of loaves of my Healthy Banana Bread (which freezes great!) and a dozen of these delicious Chocolate Avocado Blender Muffins.
These fudgy, chocolatey muffins are a great make-ahead breakfast or snack for when you are super busy. Plus, they are healthy, too!
Don’t let the “avocado” part of the recipe scare you. I promise these muffins taste super chocolatey. The avocado adds to the texture but you don’t taste it at all.
These muffins are also gluten free and low in sugar. You can make them completely sugar free by omitting the peanut butter chips. But come on, who wants that?
These are called “blender muffins” because you mix up the batter using a blender. It’s so easy! All you have to do is dump all of the ingredients in the blender and let it mix up the batter for you.
