I’m sure you’ve had your fair share of avocado toast by now. We’ve seen things from poached eggs to grilled peaches on top of the nutrient-packed super fruit, and at this point, it can get slightly nauseating. But I admit, every now and then, I cave in and indulge as a guilty pleasure.

Instead of filling up your Instagram feed with yet another #avotoast, make these avocado toast cupcakes instead, which fuses dessert and breakfast into a tangy, creamy concoction. And it’s all semi-homemade, which means you can spend less time baking and more time eating. Sandra Lee would be hella proud.
