Chocolate Cherry Avocado Muffins & Miss Piggy

Miss Piggy

Gotta love Miss Piggy

When I was younger, I LOVED Miss Piggy! So sassy and fierce and always dressed like Tammy Faye Baker! She was amazing. And she could put those other muppets in their place in a nano second. Who’s decision was it to make her a pig, though? I mean, is there some hidden chauvinist agenda in making the most awesome character in the Muppets crew a PIG?

Anyway, I loved Miss Piggy. Miss Piggy loved Kermit. Kermit was green like an avocado. Avocado was this week’s challenge item. See how I did that? Wasn’t reaching at all.

I made muffins this week for the challenge. And I’ll be eating them, along with the delicious Gala apples I picked up from Trader Joes, for breakfast this week. They aren’t like these cupcakes, like kick your mama good, but they are solid, lightly sweet and definitely nutritious. And come on, who doesn’t love a muffin that’s got avocado in it?

A plethora of yummy, nutritious ingredients
