Mixed Berry Avocado Muffins
Healthy and delicious are two of my favorite words. Add in the words easy recipes, it’s even better. These healthy berry muffins are made with no added sugar and simple ingredients. The one ingredient that you may not normally see in a muffin recipe is the avocado. Avocado adds in extra nutrients and doesn’t affect these naturally sweet blackberry and raspberry muffins.
Blackberries offer many health benefits, so not only do they make my berry avocado delicious, they are also giving you a vitamin boost. Blackberries are full of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese. Blackberries are also high in fiber.
Raspberries are also good for you. Raspberries are high in fiber and loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
Avocados are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, and vitamin B-6. Avocados also have riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, and magnesium. Avocados actually have more potassium than bananas. They loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids and have approximately 12-14 grams of fiber per avocado.
I used a protein pancake mix to make my avocado berry muffins because a little extra protein is an excellent way to help us feel fuller longer and stay fuel for whatever the day is going to through our way. These avocado berry muffins are a great way to start your day or as a midday snack.
The ingredients in my berry avocado muffins are:
Complete Protein Pancake Mix – I used Kodiak Cakes Protein Packed Mix
To make my berry avocado muffins you simply mix everything together and bake them for 25-30 minutes. Easy enough!

These Mixed Berry Avocado Muffins freeze great. If you are looking to make breakfast time even easier, match a batch freeze each one individually and grab one out of the freezer before you head out the door in the morning or add one to your (and the kids’) lunches. You can freeze homemade muffins for up to 3 months, but trust me, these will be long gone before that 🙂
