Avocado chocolate chocolate chip cookies

When I first started seeing recipes like this, I was totally tuned off. Avocado in my cookie? No thanks. But I gave in and decided to try it. Honestly, they are delicious, chocolaty, and NOT AT ALL avocado-y tasting. I was shocked. Easy to make, not so bad for you and delicious!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
100 g. avocado flesh
½ cup coconut sugar—-I used half regular sugar, half stevia
1 egg
½ cup dark cocoa powder
50 g. dark chocolate chunks-good dark chocolate is best here. Darker the better I say 🙂
1 tbsp. water
½ tsp. baking soda

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a bowl using a hand mixer, mix together avocado and coconut sugar until smooth. Add in the egg.
Mix in the cocoa powder and chocolate chunks. In a small bowl or glass dissolve the baking soda in water and add to the dough. Mix well.
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.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies don’t stick as much to the paper as they did before baking.
Cool down. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to an week.

Notes from the original baker:

The cookies are best cold – and even better when they have been in the fridge over night.
* 100 g. avocado flesh equals ¾ cup
** You can sub ⅓ cup not-so-runny honey for the coconut sugar
