Healthy Avocado Chocolate Cookies
Avocado for butter (please don’t leave! I promise you won’t ever be able to taste the avocado)
No grains (which means no white flour)
Coconut sugar for white sugar.
Very dark chocolate chunks (I love the fact that dark chocolate is actually healthy)
And the rest of the recipe list: organic dark cocoa powder, an egg and baking soda (well, I know this isn’t entirely natural, but it is however organic, source)
- 100 g. avocado flesh* (very ripe, but not brown)
- 1/2 cup coconut sugar** (a bit more than 1 dl.)
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup dark cocoa powder (a bit more than 1 dl.)
- 50 g. dark chocolate chunks (I used 85% cocoa)
- 1 tbsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. baking soda

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 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.
