Kizingo EATS: blueberry avocado muffins

We adore avocados around these parts. Mashed into guac, diced onto tacos or on top of scrambled eggs, smushed into taste and sprinkled with salt ... these are the more obvious ways avocados are consumed by the arm load each week.

Avocados are a power food. They are loaded with soluble and insoluble fiber which is great for healthy digestion, contain a component that has been shown to maintain cholesterol levels, and are full of healthy unsaturated fats which help keep brain cells communicating with one another. (Avocados make a great first (or second, or third!) finger food ... if you're at that stage with your little one).

This recipe uses avocados in a new way - at least for our house. Although I've seen recipes calling for it in chocolate mousse and ice cream (even macaroni and cheese) I haven't been very adventuresome. But I have a hard time saying no to muffins, especially with the abundance of blueberries available these days, so one rainy afternoon these bad boys made their way into the oven. 

I think you should give them a try. I doubt they will disappoint. Unless you don't like muffins. In which case, I'm not sure we can be friends anymore ;)
