Healthy Avocado Chocolate Cookies

josefinetm
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. -
CALORIES: I do not usually count my calories for personal reasons, but one reader has calculated them for me: If you sub maple syrup for honey and add one tbsp. oat flour and make ten cookies each one has 75 calories

Ingredients
  

  • 100 g (3/4 cup) avocado flesh (very ripe, but not brown)
  • 1/2 cup (120mL) coconut sugar (*SEE NOTES)
  • 1 egg (FOR VEGAN VERSION SEE BELOW)
  • 1/2 cup (120mL) dark cocoa powder
  • 50 g dark chocolate chunks (I used 85% cocoa)
  • 1/2 tbsp baking soda

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 175°C / 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 baking soda - or better: blend everything together in a food processor, so easy.
  • Stir in chocolate chunks.
  • 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.

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.
