Healthy Avacado Chocolate Cookies

I have been trying really hard to eat healthier and make better choices. Its not always easy… I know this because I have a bad sweet tooth! I can’t give up my sweets sooo… A few nights ago my bestie and I really wanted to make cookies but we didn’t know what kind… so of course we turned to pinterest. Pinterest so amazing… you can find so many great things! I love searching recipes, home decor and fashion. Anyways…. haha

We found this really simple recipe that didn’t have a lot of ingredients nor were the healthy ingredients hard to find. I really enjoyed this recipe so I thought I would share! 

So we didn’t know what type of cookies to search so we started with healthy… which then led to healthy avocado dark chocolate cookies… which took us to The Smoothie Lover’s blog!! I couldn’t wait to bake what looked like this wonderful creation!!! I am literally going to link her page and her instructions for the cookies! Her blog post explains them so well that I want to make sure she gets all the credit!!!!! 🙂

So lets begin!!!! 

 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
makes about 10 cookies
NOTES – These cookies are absolutely best when completely cold. Storing them in the fridge over night makes them perfect – * Some people might like a bit more sweetener. I like my cookies bitter. – * Instead of coconut sugar you can use 1/2 cup of honey – * I recently made a batch of these using 1 banana instead of the coconut sugar. The result was great. If using banana instead I highly recommend making the cookies using the food processor method. 

Ingredients:

-Avocado for butter
-Coconut sugar for white sugar.
-Very dark chocolate chunks
-organic dark cocoa powder
-An egg
-Baking soda
….. And that’s it!!!
  • 100 g. (3/4 cup) avocado flesh (very ripe, but not brown)
  • ½ cup (120mL) coconut sugar (*SEE NOTES)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup (120mL) dark cocoa powder
  • 50 g. dark chocolate chunks (I used 85% cocoa)
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 175°C / 350° F.
  2. In a bowl using a hand mixer (or make everything in a food processor), mix together avocado and coconut sugar until smooth. Add in the egg.
  3. Mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda.
  4. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  5. Using two spoons place dollops of cookie dough in a baking sheet with parchment paper. The cookie won’t spread as much as usual cookies when baking, so make sure to flatten them out a bit with the back of the spoon.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies don’t stick as much to the paper as they did before baking.
  7. Cool down. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Readers’ notes
– If using banana you might have to bake them for a little longer. Also, I recommend not using a big banana
– Readers have tried adding all different kinds of delicious add ins – try for instance mint, peanut butter cups, cocoa nibs etc.
