Chocolate & Avocado Muffins

Standard

Did you know that…

I LOVE AVOCADOS!

In fact, I love them because they are delicious and they provide good fats and vitamins to the body.

In this recipe, they replace eggs and butter. Try to use avocados in recipe.. you don’t taste them at all and the results are always surprising! 🙂
