Chocolate Avocado Muffins!

Some of my close friends know how I feel about Avocados...I'm obsessed with them! They are like candy to me! I was looking at some baking recipes with Avocado and started experimenting with my own! Avocados are packed with all that good fat ,it acts like butter in this recipe! These muffins are so satisfying they could pass as dessert. Take a look!
