Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies

Vegan Chocolate Cookies on Rich, chocolaty, fudgy-you will never know these cookies are healthy!

Avocados are the perfect food. I love using them to make guacamolesaladsmac and cheese, and sandwiches. I also love using them to bake cookies! I am sure you just said COOKIES??? out loud. Yes, cookies. I recently made Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies and they are incredible. Actually, they are beyond incredible. They are the best chocolate cookies I have had in a long time. No joke!

Vegan Chocolate Cookie Recipe on

Instead of using butter I used mashed up avocado and coconut oil. Two healthy fats team up to create an amazing cookie! I am telling you, you will never know there is avocado in these cookies. I kind of feel bad saying that because I love avocado and don’t mind inviting an avocado to my cookie party. But just in case you worried the avocado will interfere with the decadent chocolate taste, go ahead and breath a sigh of relief because these cookies are divine!

Avocados turned into a divine Chocolate Cookie! Recipe on

Look at that beauty! Avocados make me happy, especially when they create such a fantastic cookie. You aren’t going to miss the butter at all! There are no eggs involved either. I used almond milk to create a moist dough and it worked beautifully. And to get the rich chocolate flavor, I used Dutch processed cocoa and vegan chocolate chips. Double the chocolate, double the fun!

These Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies are crazy good! I can’t say it enough! The cookies are thick, rich, and fudgy! You only need one cookie to cure your chocolate craving. These cookies are a chocolate powerhouse!

If you need a chocolate fix, I highly recommend you bake a batch of Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies. They are a chocolate lover’s dream!

Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies

Yield: 2 dozen cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Rich and chocolaty cookies that are made with avocado! These vegan cookies are divine! You will never know there is no butter in these babies!


1 1/4 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cup Dutch processed cocoa
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup mashed avocado
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup almond milk
1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the coconut oil, avocado, and sugars together until creamy and smooth, about 2-3 minutes. Add in the vanilla extract.

4. With the mixer on low, add half of the flour mixture. Add the milk and then add the remaining dry ingredients. Mix until the flour disappears. Stir in the chocolate chips.

5. Form cookie dough into tablespoon balls and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten the cookies with the palm of your hand or a spatula. Bake cookies for 10 minutes, or until set around the edges, but still soft in the center. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.

Note: I buy vegan chocolate chips at Whole Foods. I like to use Trader Joe's coconut oil.

    all the time i used to read smaller content that also
    clear their motive, and that is also happening with
    this post which I am reading at this place.

    Maria I love these!!! I just saw Gaby and got her book and some avocados last week and I was so close to making brownies with them but had JUST made brownies 2 days earlier and then I almost made cookies but went in another direction that I’m posting later this week. But your cookies are stunning. I love using avo in desserts. And no, you never taste it. Well, I don’t. It just adds creaminess and richness. Pinned!

  5. Erica — June 10, 2013 @ 6:44 am

    Avocado is popping up all over the place! We’re avocado- fanatics in this family, so we are more than ok with that. If I finally buy some coconut oil, I’ll give these a go

  6. nessa — June 10, 2013 @ 7:13 am

    These look terrific! Perfect for my vegan friend :)

  7. Jett Whitfield — June 10, 2013 @ 7:17 am

    What a great way to get the healthy benefits of avocados and coconut oil into kiddos like mine who don’t like them! Definitely trying these soon!

  9. Helena — June 10, 2013 @ 7:23 am

    These look divine! Thank you for making a relatively new vegan very very happy! I am going to try to use coconut sugar in place of the sugar too, so that they are almost healthy and I can eat two!

  10. I love avocado cookies! They are one of my favorites! Love how you got the brown color with the cocoa powder! Great recipe!

  13. coconut oil and mashed avocado. These cookies are calling my name, Maria! I’m not vegan, but I do love finding new chocolate cookie recipes. And I’m an avocado freak! Hope you had a blast at BlogHer this weekend! So sad I had to miss it.

  14. Grant Nash — June 10, 2013 @ 9:15 am

    These look incredible. Im always a little surprised by how well Avos work in making ‘sweet’ desserts/cookies etc. Thanks for sharing Sally. Going to try them out this weekend.

  15. Grant Nash — June 10, 2013 @ 9:17 am

    I mean Maria …. I have never been good with names LOL :-)

  16. What a gorgeous batch of vegan cookies, Maria! They look so scrumptious and easy to make, too. Gaby would be proud of the avocado addition. 😉 So glad we got to meet at BlogHer!

  18. Alyssa — June 10, 2013 @ 9:51 am

    I wonder how these would turn out using GF flour? Any thoughts??

    • Two Peas replied: — June 11th, 2013 @ 7:55 am

      I haven’t tried making these gluten-free, but I want to. I am sure they will turn out great!

    Wow, what a unique cookie! I was going to put avocado in some muffins, but chickened out because I thought it would be weird. I should try again 😉

    I really need to include avocados in my baked goods more often! Love how moist and chocolatey these are!

  23. Marie — June 10, 2013 @ 10:49 am

    Whenever I use coconut oil in recipes the taste is too strong for me……are some brands better than others?

    • Two Peas replied: — June 11th, 2013 @ 7:55 am

      I always use Trader Joe’s coconut oil. I love it!

  24. Heather Christo — June 10, 2013 @ 10:53 am

    These look so great! I should try using avocado in place of eggs too- great idea!

  25. Wendie — June 10, 2013 @ 10:59 am

    Avocados are one food that makes me happy, also!! Great vegan recipe!

  36. Laurie — June 10, 2013 @ 4:13 pm

    Have you substituted honey for any of the sugar?

    • Two Peas replied: — June 11th, 2013 @ 7:54 am

      I didn’t use honey because I wanted the cookies to be vegan, but I bet honey would work well.

  37. Mimi @ Culinary Couture — June 10, 2013 @ 4:21 pm

    I NEED these cookies in my life!

  38. naomi — June 10, 2013 @ 4:37 pm

    I have to try your fat combo (avocado and coconut oil) what a great idea!!

  39. These sound so freaking good! This is a total MUST try!

  40. Michelle — June 10, 2013 @ 5:10 pm

    Hi! I am wondering, I’m not a huge chocolate fan. Can I omit the cocoa powder without replacing it with anything? Or if I need to replace, what would I replace or change?

    • Two Peas replied: — June 11th, 2013 @ 7:54 am

      I haven’t tried the cookies without the cocoa powder.
