  2. Will be making more of these! They disappeared at lunch. Glad I ate a few before that happened!

  3. When I heard you talk about these I had to come check them out. Love the blog!

  4. Love the recipe, but is it baking soda or baking powder. Look the ingredient over and let know the correct recipe.

  5. Mimi, I thought these were mini scones at first! They are so cute and small. Perfect as an appetizer for a dinner party.

    I like the addition of the avocado wedge on the top. It really brightens it up.

    Have you ever tried baking with an avocado as a substitute for butter or oil? I’ve tried it once with banana bread and it turned out fairly well.

    However, I found that my bread didn’t rise and fluff up as it would if I were to use butter. Let me know if you have had any experience with it and know a solution!

  6. Look a little too yummy, Mimi – very creative and, I agree, kind of like a mini scone…
