Avocado muffins with chocolate chips sweetened with stevia. These low-carb muffins are gluten free and the perfect snack or grab and go breakfast meal!
About a quarter mile from where my office is there is a produce stand that has such amazing deals on fresh veggies and fruits as well as pretty flowers. I walk there often during the afternoon and snag a few items to take home.
I particularly love their avocados because they’re smaller than what I see at the grocery store, and quite reasonable. Sometimes I can buy three for one dollar!
I can’t pass up a good deal, so I’ll load up and add avocado slices to salads or eat them plain. Alan prefers avocado dishes like this chunky avocado dip, avocados with bacon and egg or grilled Greek avocados.
I was a little surprised that Alan gave these avocado muffins the thumbs up because even though the baking chips add some chocolatey flavor these muffins aren’t as sweet as you might expect. Of course you can easily increase the sweetener if you are trying to satisfy a sweet tooth in a nutritious way!
These muffins are the perfect snack to get you out of a mid day slump. Lots of good fat are added which will help keep those hunger pangs satisfied. I also made these with almond flour, which keeps these babies low carb!
