Ingredients

Chocolate avocado icing

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C, line a 12-hole muffin tin with paper cases.

  2. Sift the flour and cacao into a large mixing bowl. Add the stevia and stir to combine. Whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla and macadamia oil. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Stir through the chopped chocolate.

  3. Divide the mixture in the muffin tray. Place in preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.

  4. Place the avocado and cacao in a food processor and process until completely smooth. Add a few drops stevia to taste. Spread icing over the cooled muffins.

    • It’s a natural sweetener that is good for you, I use it when a recipe calls for sugar

    • My doctor actually told me not to use it or any other sweeteners, just keep trying to reduce your sugar intake. Suits me as I don’t have sugar in my coffee, and only the occasional desert as I’m more of a savoury tooth.

    • Stevia is a plant. I grow it. If you don’t want to buy the refined stevia then buy a couple of plants. Allow the leaves to dry out and grind them. Not as sweet as the refined stevia but it works okay.

  1. my daughter, who is vegan and gluten free, uses the avocado icing all the time except she uses pure maple syrup instead of stevia. it is so delicious you just want to eat it out of the container.
