Avocado Blueberry Muffins

I pinned this recipe awhile back and have been dying to make these muffins!!  The problem is my avocados were always TOO ripe or NOT ripe enough yet.  #TheStruggleIsReal   avocado_notyet So when I noticed that I had two avocados in prime condition for baking, I jumped on the opportunity.  Now you might be thinking...avocados...in muffins?!  I know...I was right there with ya.  But these are AMAZING!  Super moist and delicious.  I think next time I might add protein powder to the recipe.
