SO HOW'D IT GO?

I love this recipe, the texture is soft compared those I baked before using mango/pumpkin. Is it the cocoa powder that creat the soft texture inside? I just used normal white flour for baking. :)

Just realized I never did post my full review.

The muffins were excellent, in my opinion, however my omnivorous family wasn't so pleased with them. Mostly because they were expecting a chocolate cupcake (though I did say they are NOT cupcakes). They're not very sweet and some what dense, but that's what I'd look for, and expect, in a muffin. :)

1/2 tablespoon salt seemed like way too much to me, so I cut it back to 1/2 teaspoon. They taste sooo good, especially with cherry jam. :) Makes the house smell super yummy too. Just have to test them on the omnivores now... I'll probably post once they'vre tried them out.

These sound great.  I love avocado and chocolate together.  Also nice that you used whole grain flour!  I will have to try them this week.

These were AWESOME!  I made them for a potluck lunch at work, and everyone raved.  They were also very curious about the avocado.  I couldn't believe how much they rose -- the muffins were huge, and chocolately.  I used Ener-G instead of ground flax, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly.  I am making these again for another potluck lunch at my son's daycare.  Everyone should make these muffins!!
