Avocado Chocolate Cookies (Almond Flour)

Although I am a big fan of butter, I had read how avocado can be used to replace it in cooking so thought I would give it a try.  The end result was a soft, brownie like cookie after 30 minutes in the oven.  They were better the next day so a bit of will power is needed not to eat them all when they are out of the oven.

Since the mixture was very moist, I think you could possibly make this vegan by omitting the egg and it would firm up the cookie.   I was also making some ice cream and made a cookie ice cream sandwich out of the last two.  Delicious.  I kicked myself for not doing it when I had more cookies left, as they were perfect for an ice cream sandwich!

Make sure you use a soft, ripe avocado.  If it is a bit firm, wait a day or two.



1 ripe avocado

1 cup almond flour

1 tspn baking powder

1/4 tspn salt

    I just made these for the second time. The first batch burned, but were still edible though a bit on the dry side. The second batch came out much better. I added a little butter, maybe 2 tsp, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, chopped walnuts, 2T flaxseed. Baked at 350 for 25 minutes. My husband likes them, even after I told him about the avocado.

      Yum! I’d have to lie about the flaxseed to my husband! Let them eat first, then tell them what was in it!

    It is tempting to leave the cocoa powder out just to see what they bake like though! Perhaps flavour them with lime? hmmmm..might have to have another play around with these!

      LOL! I try the same with various things too! After sneaking avocado into a chocolate pudding, he now tolerates it in a salad! Keep it up! 😉
