HOT LUNCH RECIPE WAGON: Avocado Muffins

This recipe is a good way to use overripe avocados that are too mushy to put into salads.  The muffins have a gentle flavor, and are good plain or with a bit of honey on top.

½ cup ripe avocado cubes

1 egg

½ cup milk

2 tablespoons orange juice

1 cup whole wheat flour

¼ cup granulated brown sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon salt

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Coat 5 cups of a muffin tin with nonstick baking spray.
  • Put the avocado cubes, egg, milk and orange juice into a food processor and process until the mixture is pureed.  Add the four, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and process until mixed.
  • Spoon an equal amount of the mixture into each of the cups.  Tap the muffin tin on the counter a few times to eliminate air bubbles. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins spring back when touched.  Place warm in foil, pack in a heated lunch tote for a hot lunch.
