Avocado Lime Muffins

Avocado Lime Muffins

I am a big fan of using up all my ripe fruits in recipes. One, I am not guilty of throwing it away and two I am so happy that something that would have otherwise landed into the dustbin has turned into something so beautiful. That feels really good 🙂

When you find yourself with an abundance of ripe avocados try these. Whether its breakfast muffins or an afternoon snack, this recipe is just the ticket.

Serves 12


113 g unsalted butter; at room temperature

133ml buttermilk; at room temperature

265 g caster sugar

265 g plain flour

2 large eggs; at room temperature

1 lime

1 ripe avocado

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda


  1. Preheat oven at 180 degrees C.
  2. Line muffin pan with muffin liners and set aside.
  3. Sift all dry ingredients except sugar together and set aside.
  4. Beat sugar and butter together. Add eggs one at a time until the batter is fluffy and pale yellow.
  5. Stir in mashed avocado, lime juice, buttermilk and vanilla extract.
  6. Fold in the wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Do not overmix else your muffins will be dense.
  7. Spoon the mixture 3/4th full evenly into the muffin liners. I use an ice cream scoop so I get equal sized muffins.
  8. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes at 180 degrees C or do a toothpick test. Remove from heat and cool.

Enjoy these light muffins with your favourite cuppa’ coffee. 🙂
