Whole Wheat Chocolate Avocado Banana Muffins

I was searching for recipes from Avocado when I landed on this Avocado Banana Muffins recipe. I love this recipe because it uses honey instead of sugar and that too very less. The sweetness comes from Banana’s, so be sure to use very ripe Banana’s which will impart its natural sweetness. I did do few changes in the recipe to make super moist and delicious Whole Wheat Chocolate Avocado Banana Muffins.

I did replace the all purpose flour in this Chocolate Avocado Banana Muffins with whole wheat flour and also added some cocoa powder to make it more chocolaty and appealing to my kids. This recipe is toddler friendly too, so easy to give them something healthy. If you do not want cocoa powder for the toddler, simply replace it with the whole wheat flour.

I would be true this Whole Wheat Chocolate Avocado Banana Muffins were not sweet, two reasons because I used whole wheat flour, which according to my experience cuts the sweetness and secondly I added cocoa powder to the original recipe. So I tweaked without adding any more sweetener. But this was perfect for me to have as a snack or even in my morning breakfast . Lol, I just need an excuse to eat chocolate 😛 😛

And why not when it does not contain any butter or oil. Oh did I not mention that, yes it is oil and butter free, so what can we ask more in a cake or a muffin?

To serve it as a dessert to guest, I would warm them a bit , add some chocolate sauce and a dollop of fresh cream or Ice Cream and a perfect dessert is ready in minutes. This muffins freeze well, so even if they are left, do not worry, just freeze. Pop them in the microwave when you feel like eating one and you are sorted without any extra hassle.
