Avocado Olive Oil Muffins

Avocado Olive Oil Muffins (makes 18 muffins)

2 medium Hass avocados
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup honey
Zest of 2 lemons
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 eggs
1 cup milk
4 cups white whole-wheat flour or whole wheat pastry flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tablespoon cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Beat together the flesh of the avocados, olive oil, honey, lemon zest, and lemon juice, until smooth.  In a separate bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.  Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, stirring just until combined.  Scoop the batter into prepared muffin cups and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
