Baby Led Weaning Muffin Recipe
These are healthier than usual muffins because we aren’t using any oil or butter. Instead we’re making them moist and creamy with avocado and yogurt. Remember my avocado brownies? Yup, super creamy! So are these muffins!
To keep them more on the healthy side, I do a very light dusting of sugar on top, but it’s up to you! If you are looking for a more dessert crumble on top use this crumble topping recipe because it’s the best. Also, never underestimate the power of simple peanut butter! For breakfast I often have a few of these mini muffins with creamy peanut butter on top – it’s filling and starts the morning off right!
Time to make Chocolate Avocado Muffins!
Mix all your dry ingredients together in a bowl. For the chocolate taste we’re going to add cocoa powder. For flour we’re making these muffins more nutritious and using whole wheat flour.
Grab your avocado and remove the seed and skin. We want the avocado to be creamy so make sure the avocado is ripe that you’re using.
Once you mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients you’re going to have a crumbly muffin mixture. The mixture won’t be pourable, so you will need to scoop spoonfuls into your mini muffin pan.
Just like that! Now sprinkle sugar on top if you want!
Bake for 15 minutes and then your muffins will easily pop out of the muffin pan. Seriously, they shouldn’t stick at all. They will have a natural crumbly top and soft muffin inside!
This Chocolate Avocado Baby Muffins recipe makes about 40 mini muffins. If you’re not going to eat them all in the next couple days, you can easily freeze them for up to 2 months. They make a perfect snack to pull out of the freezer and pack for daycare!
