Lightbulb AVOCADO Muffins!

You all know I love the avos!
Here's yet another idea of what to do
with them.

AVOCADO MUFFINS

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 avocado mashed well (no chunks!)
1 cup toasted slivered almonds
1 cup milk

2 cups self-raising flour
lemon rind

Preheat oven to 400F and spray pans with Pam.
Cream butter and sugar and beat in the egg. Blend in the avocado and milk and mix in the nuts.

Add the flour and mix gently but thoroughly until the ingredients are moistened and combined.
Pour into pans.
Bake 20-25 minutes.
Makes 10-12.

You know jkath, I sure wish they were as cheap here as they must be for you. Those babies cost me an arm and a leg to buy. And frankly, after filling my van, I don't have the arm or leg to spare!

These look tasty though. Got a pic to post?

Well, now that I have a bit more time, I've been baking up a storm. Yesterday was almond brownies, today was banana muffins, and hopefully I'll bake more avo-muffins later on this week. I'll be sure to take a photo when I do.
