Description

Whenever you have a chocolate craving, these healthy chocolate avocado cookies are the answer. Sugar and dairy free, they are also available in a vegan version!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, finely mashed
  • ½ cup (100g) coconut sugar
  • 1 egg (for Vegan version, see my notes below*)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (50g) dark cocoa powder, unsweetened
  • 2 oz (60 g) 70% dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/3 cup (40g) flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (150°C).
  2. Combine the finely mashed avocado, coconut palm sugar, egg (or for vegan version with flaxseed prepared as below in notes*), and vanilla extract in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, and baking soda.
  4. Mix together the wet and dry ingredients until just combined.
  5. Gently stir in the dark chocolate chunks.
  6. Using a small ice cream scoop or spoon, add one heaping tablespoon of dough on to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Flatten the top a little bit.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the top has set (don’t over-bake!). Remove from the oven, let cool for a few minutes on the baking tray. Then transfer to a cooling rack.

Notes

* For the vegan version, combine 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and mix with 3 tablespoons of water. Mix well and set aside for about 10 minutes to thicken before using it.
