Chocolate Avocado Cookies
Chocolate Avocado Cookies are the most delicious way to sneak avocado (aka healthy fats) into a dessert recipe! They're made with good-for-you ingredients, making them the ideal breakfast, snack OR dessert.
Servings: 10 cookies
- 1 avocado mashed (approx. 1/3 cup)
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- 2 tbsp cane sugar
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or spray with nonstick spray; set aside.
Mash the avocado into a bowl, then scoop it into a 1/3 cup measuring cup to ensure you have the correct amount. Place the mashed avocado back into the bowl, then add the peanut butter and maple syrup; stir to combine.
Next, add the oats, cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and chocolate chips and use a rubber spatula to stir until everything is mixed together. NOTE: the dough should be a little sticky.
Use your hands to roll the dough into 10 balls and place them directly onto the baking sheet and use your hands to flatten them out. Be sure to make the cookies the size you want them to be because they won't expand in the oven!
Bake the cookies for 14 minutes. Remove them from the oven and carefully transfer them onto a cooling rack. Optional: drizzle them with extra peanut butter and enjoy!
