Healthy Avocado Chocolate Chunk Cookies


It’s almost a sin to walk pass Famous Amos cookies. The smell of freshly baked cookies is just overwhelming. It takes a lot of self-control to walk away from the store without buying anything. The assortment of cookies behind the clear counter display…the big moist muffins ( All eyes on the double chocolate ones). My mouth is crying out for just one bite. My dessert sweet tooth is sending signals to my brain to fish out some extra coins for this major situation.


There is an internal battle going on between the brain, the mouth/ stomach and the mind. Eventually, the legs made the ultimate decision to walk away. End of Story. Despite this very sad story, it doesn’t go on for long because when you’re a baker, you can make wonders happen in the kitchen.


Fishing out my 3-4 days old avocadoes.. They seem almost ripe with their green flesh. What am I gonna do with my favorite avocadoes today? A million and one things go through my mind again… I decided, it was time for some healthier cookies. *That’s the famous Amos brain* bugging me again. Temptation exists. FOR REAL and ALL the time. I chanced upon Josefine's from Sproutedfig healthy chocolate avocado cookies and was drawn immediately by how rich and moist the cookie looks. Who can resist chocolates? Double Chocolate ( Twice the temptation). If you’re not tempted, Mama will say you’re definitely crazy. Healthy Avocado cookies? Don’t they sound yum to you already?


I made 2 batches of cookies. I replaced honey for sugar in one of the batches. Texture was pretty similar btw these two batches. The one with honey was a little flatter than the one without ( See picture above).  Taste wise, the honey one tasting more like honey ( Well obviously). Bottomline is the cookies are so delicious!! I guarantee you cant stop at one. It’s good to know that they are healthy too!!

What are you waiting for! Bake a batch and share the love around.

Chocolate Avocado Cookies (Yields about 10 cookies)

Ingredients


100 g (3/4 cup) Ripe Avocado Flesh
1/2 cup  (80g) coconut sugar ( OR you can substitute with 1/2 Cup Honey) 
1 egg 
1/2 cup (30g) dark cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Steps


1) Preheat oven to 175°C / 350° F.

2) Using a hand mixer, mix together avocado and coconut sugar until smooth. 

3) Add in the egg.

4) Mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda

5) Stir in dark chocolate chunks.

6) Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes until cookies don't stick to the paper. 

7) Cool completely or if you're greedy like me, i like to eat them right after they are out from the oven when the chocolate chips are still melty. You can store in an airtight container in the fridge.
