This is, I promise, the last avocado recipe for now.
I can't claim this as my own as I swiped the idea from Deb over at An Aussie with Chron's (recipe on the link). I've since found that bacon and avocado muffins, mainstream version, are a kiwi fave. Who knew? I never even met an avocado until my mid-20's and remember it being a bit hard to handle.
Slimy, green fruit? How exotic. As for baking with them, that's something really new-to-me. You learn something new every day. Avocado muffins? YES!
As I didn't have the coconut flour required for Deb's recipe, I used almond flour instead and it did more or less work. They were yummy, but a little soft.
After a little discussion with Deb via her comments, I think that a 50:50 almond meal and whole psyllium husks might work. You need something to soak up the liquid.
These muffins are suitable for paleo, gluten-free, diary-free, sugar-free and specific carbohydrate (SCD) diets. I would say that one is a snack and 2-3 is a meal.
There is some argument about whether psyllium is actually 'paleo', but in my mind, it's a seed, and seeds are okies. That having been said, I won't be eating any for a while. More about that tomorrow. If you do add psyllium, this makes the muffins unsuitable for the SCD.
