Vegan Chocolate Avocado Cookies
Avocados are the perfect food. I love using them to make guacamole, salads, mac 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!
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!
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.
