Gorgeous lemon avocado muffins with poppy seeds and a simple sugar glaze. Perfect for Lent as they are dairy and egg free. For a vegan option just switch the honey with some agave nectar.
Let me start by saying you can’t really taste the avocado. For some this is a good thing, for some… well, let’s just say it wouldn’t bother us if we could. I love avocado. I’m so glad I’m a grown up and I can eat all the avocado bits and leave the rest of the salad. I’m sure you know what I mean.
I am quite proud of these muffins. The recipe is my own creation and considering how finicky baking is, I was very happy with how they turned out. I got the result I wanted with the second try. The first was good, but the extra drop of honey, which is the change I made second time round, made all the difference. You can substitute the honey with a suitable syrup like agave for a vegan version. These are definitely not only for Lent. Enjoy with a cup of coffee, tea, or even for breakfast!
