AVOCADO BANANA MUFFINS RECIPE (SUPER EASY AND DELICIOUS!)

Do you believe it was only a little more than a year ago that I tasted my first avocado?

Seriously, I must have lived a a deprived world since my mother never cared for the fruit. She claims it is tasteless so she never Incorporated it into our meals. As a a young adult, I never even had the urge to try it, and it was never on my radar. Now that I have kids, one day I decided to try the unique fruit and was in love at first bite.

Now, I typically enjoy my avocado as the star of guacamole, or sliced in salads, or sandwiches. I have never once tried baking with it until today. Since I am looking to have a healthier New Year, I wanted to try a batch of muffins that incorporated avocado as an oil and butter substitute. I love banana muffins and have several recipes that have been in my family for a while. I decided today to experiment and was super happy with the results, and taste of my avocado banana muffins.
