Banana Avocado Muffins

As promised... my Banana Avocado Muffin recipe (altered [because I cannot follow a recipe to save my life] from a recipe shared by my good friend B - who is tall, slim, blond & GORGEOUS... oh and a mama of FOUR... if I didn't love her so much, I'd hate her... for realz)

Measurements are approximate, I use measuring cups... but more of as a means to transfer ingredients from their containers to my mixing bowl... not to be accurate
2 ripe Avocados
2-3 medium sized ripe bananas
1 cup oats
1-1.5 cups flour (whole wheat preferably)
1/3-1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
pinch of salt
pinch of baking soda
1 great big splash of vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips (optional *spfffffffft* like you won't add them)

Pre-heat oven to 375F

1.  Mush, smash, puree bananas & avocados
2.  Blend butter & sugar.  Add eggs.  Add puree, mush, smash mixture
3.  Mix dry ingredients (set aside 1/2 cup of flour... you may need it later, you may not)
4.  Combine dry ingredients with wet ingredients
5.  If combined mixture is too wet, slowly add more flour until you reach optimal muffin consistency
6.  Spoon into muffin tins - I use the medium sized dozen tins

Bake for 18-20 minutes (depends on your oven... check with a tooth pick)

Now, this may sound like a weird muffin combination but it is seriously delicious.  The avocados add a rich buttery texture... yom yom yom!

Oh and the gals at LLL did not get to enjoy these muffins... my avocado wasn't ripe enough.  Stupid avocado.
