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.


Everyone loved this and they could not belive there was avacado in it. Very healthy Very tastey  :)>>>


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!!
