    After getting inspired to include the healthy mono-unsaturated fats, as well as many as 20 valuable nutrients in the avocado in baking, I found a couple of good looking recipes on Joy the Baker's website. I took a cake recipe of Joy's as a starting point, and created a healthier muffin version.


    • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
    • 1 teaspoons freshly ground nutmeg
    • 1/3 cup vegetable oil (I used canola oil, but light olive oil or coconut are good options too)
    • 1 1/2 avocados, well ripened, and very well mashed (a fork works fine, but you can also use a food processor)
    • 1 1/2 cups maple syrup (I prefer grade B for a deeper, rich flavor and more nutrients)
    • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


    1. Preheat oven to 350º F.
    2. Sift together all of the dry ingredients.
    3. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl, including the mashed avocado.
    4. Combine wet and dry ingredients, and mix with a wooden spoon until smooth.
    5. Spoon batter into a greased muffin tins or paper baking cups. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
