Vegan avocado lime jumbo muffins

The other day I went to my local supermarket and to my surprise avocados had their price reduced. Then without hesitation I picked two beautiful ones and I went back home. That night I made guacamole and sweet potatoes wedges and it was a very tasty dinner. I love dipping anything in that stuff. So, I thought I could do something sweet with the avocados next time, and reading and searching I found this nice recipe and the rest is history. This is a good one; I highly recommend it to those who are like me. Why not give it a try? I have a jumbo muffin pan and this also works with any form you like. My next adventure with avocado will be pancakes!!

The ingredients for this incredible recipe are:


  • 220g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • A dash of salt
  • 2 teaspoons lime zest
  • 1 normal size avocado (mashed)
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 200g white sugar
  • 222ml vanilla soy milk
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

For the topping of these muffins I halved the ingredients of the recipe, the ingredients are:


  • 1 normal size avocado (mashed)
  • ½ tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 125g icing sugar


First of all preheat the oven at 200 ºC.

Grab 2 recipients where the ingredients will be mixed. In a big bowl, toss flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and lime zest. Set aside.

In another smaller recipient smash the avocado using a fork or blender. Then add the oil and stir with your spatula. Proceed to fold in the rest of the ingredients: sugar, soy milk and lime juice.

Next step all you need to do is combining the wet ingredients into the dry ones (carefully). Use a whisk to work on the batter.

Before filling your muffin form, apply some butter and flour to it to avoid complications when they are baked (or use muffin liners).

Once your dough is fine and free from lumps, fill your muffin form. Use an ice cream spoon to distribute the same amount.


The last step is to put the muffins in the oven, and lower the temperature to 180 ºC. The baking time will be 25-30 minutes. As every oven is different, the time might change too. So please watch them and introduce a toothpick to prove they are done.

To make the frosting

The frosting is ready in a couple of minutes. Get a small bowl and smash your avocado, add the lime juice and fold in the icing sugar. Use a mixer and combine it well. Keep in the fridge until your muffins have cooled down and proceed to top and decorate them.


My muffins looked like this: I love hearts and colours… who doesn’t?



Please give it a go! I enjoyed them so much, and my husband, his colleagues, my students…

Lots of love,

Pink Maple
