Avocado Chocolate Cupcakes

My mom and dad recently found this recipe, which we slightly tweaked and made for Easter. If I didn’t bake it myself, I would have never guessed it has avocado as a main ingredient.

The straightforward recipe calls for honey instead of refined sugar. I think everyone was surprised with how closely the cupcakes both tasted like and resembled actual chocolate cake. One side note: they’re not low in calories.
