Vegan Avocado-Scallion Bake Sale Muffins
My Vegan-Bake-Sale Best Seller!
Posted By Savita
These Avocado and Scallion muffins are The Best vegan mini treat ever! Ready in no time, these muffins are great for bake sale, breakfast, or lunch-box treats.
Packed with flavor of avocado, citrus, scallion, and serrano pepper, these Avocado Scallion are famous among my bake sale team as "Guacamole Muffins"
Oh yeah! Guacamole Muffins!!
Who knew you can cook with avocado and make delectable, healthy, and savory treats like Vegan Muffins!!
If you like Guacamole, chances are you will adore these muffins. Rich avocado, zesty serrano, mild onion taste from scallions, and just a hint of sweetness, these muffins are packed with goodness of veggies, good fats, delicious taste but are still vegan!
Since these muffins are vegan, there is piece of mind eating 2 or 3 in the breakfast (or even more!). It will certainly fill you up but will not fill you down. Their light and moist texture is my new fav these days...
I don't bake many sweet muffins/cupcakes, just once-in-a-while... One because we both avoid overall-y sweet stuff and second due to fat contents. When I started working on some recipes for fall this year, I did decide to bake some cupcakes and muffins for you all. But... whenever I was in kitchen working one the recipe, something not let me finish.... everyday, I ended up baking something but cupcakes/muffin.... I realized, I'm NOT a cupcake person... and I am never able to share with you something I won't eat.
This is when I decided to make these vegan savory muffins with easy to find pantry ingredients. In one line, "if you can make Guacamole at home and you like it, you will be able to make these muffins at home, today! and I guarantee you will love'em"!
My first bake vanished in no time! We had some for breakfast and some with evening tea. Second time, I baked'em for our (forever going...) Community Bake Sale and guess what? My community event team members purchased all of'em! Not a single cupckae reached the bake sale table... go figure!
Now, everyone is asking for recipe and that's why I made these muffin at first place, to share recipe with you all.
Keeping today's fall special recipe post, simple and petite like these muffins, allow me to quickly some-up these muffins and then get to recipe straight!
These petite are muffins so special because they are -
2) Made with easy to find ingredients!
3) Ready in no time (just 25 minutes)
4) Perfect, original, and different item for your next Bake Sale
5) Above all - enjoy 5 muffins and have not-a-single-second of guilt feeling!
Recipe is for 12 petite muffins. It doubles easily. Let me know if you want ingredient measurements for 12 large or 24 large muffins. I can send some information your way!
