Avocado Chocolate Chip Muffins

I have kind of been on a muffin kick lately.  I'm blaming it on the avocados.  I can't let them sit there and over-ripen...right?! That just wouldn't be fair!  Nope.  Totally not fair.  So turning them into delicious chocolatey muffins seemed like the perfect solution! *Disclaimer: I should not be anywhere near chocolate this month...and I did sneak a few bites, BUT in my defense, Lily requested chocolate chip muffins, as she is not very fond of blueberry muffins. IMG_9144[1] See...I had to do it!  Plus, I found these adorable liners at Target that I just couldn't wait to use!   Avocado Choc_Before   avocado choc chip
