Chocolate, banana & avocado muffins

Full disclosure I’ve made this recipe 3 times now in a row because I kept forgetting to put key ingredients in. The first time I forgot the honey…they tasted ok but not quite sweet enough, the second time I forgot the bloomin eggs! And hey presto third time lucky we have chocolate, banana, avocado muffins. Arthur has been a bit poorly today with a sore throat and a temperature…but he has told he in no uncertain terms that he loves my chocolate cake and he loves to drink milk AND he loves me because I am his best friend ever! Might be because I made him these tasty muffins but I’ll take it, I don’t mind. He has recently become very affectionate and expressive with his emotions. Sometimes things come out a bit muddled up as they can do when you are only 2 and a 1/2 but it’s really sweet hearing him express how he feels so confidently. Anyway I don’t know why I was failing time and again to put all the correct ingredients in but we got there in the end and these little beauties are chocolaty and tasty and healthy…hurray!
