Classic blueberry muffins that call for creamy fresh California Avocado to replace shortening or butter. The result is very moist and great for breakfast, snacks, tea time or dessert. Health-conscious bakers can substitute avocado for many traditional baking ingredients, such as butter or shortening. By substituting avocado, the nutritional value of baked goods is increased with the fruit's contribution of nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, along with "good fats" (poly and monounsaturated fats), while reducing the overall calories in a recipe.
