Avocado chocolate chip cookies

With so many talented foodies and cooks out there,  I am always keen to learn something from them.

As a result, my “to bake” list has been getting longer and longer…hehe 😉

For a while now, I have been eyeing these avocado chocolate chip cookies on my list and with a lonely avocado sitting in my refrigerator, it was high time I made these!

avocado chocolate chip cookies 01I know it’s a rather unusual combination but I like them!

They are soft and slightly chewy and have a different texture!

I DID NOT taste the avocado at all which was really good coz I was scared of that…

They are sorta like poofy clouds…hehe

Do not expect them to taste like buttery full fat cookies.

Enjoy them for what they are: A low fat delicate cookie that’s not gonna rest on your hips forever! lol 😀

To make these avocado chocolate chip cookies, you will need the following ingredients:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I used chopped baking chocolate)
1/2 cup avocado (approximately one avocado)
3/4 cup Splenda (I used regular sugar)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract (I like vanilla so I added 1 tbsp) 

Note:
This recipe comes from Natalie, who blogs at Deconstructing the home and says these cookies are a family favorite!

 

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Remove avocado from skin and place it in a deep bowl. Also, add Splenda or sugar (whichever you decide to use).

Step 7:
Use an ice cream scooper to scoop out the dough and place it on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 290 degrees . 

Note:
I tried a slight modification and liked the result => If you like bananas, add 1 mashed ripe banana into this batter and your cookies will have a hint of “banana-ness”

And you are done!

    I just tried avocado ice cream and surprisingly it was fabulous. I have never thought of trying avocado in baking. I am inspired to try something new!

    Great change out for the butter.

    Ya know what’s so funny is I was thinking about trying to incorporate avocados into cookies the other day! haha That is so cool that you made them! I’m excited to give it a go!

    What a great recipe! I have been buying sweet potato cupcakes with avocado frosting at our Farmers’ Market, so am totally into trying more sweet things with avocado!

    This is really interesting! I’ve heard of avocado brownies, but never cookies! I would bookmark these…but I just have sooo many bookmarked recipes to try out (approx. 150) and almost everyday, the list gets even longer ^^

    I made these with oat flour and xylitol, and they were absolutely delicious! I also used Dagoba dark chocolate drops, which are my favorite chocolate chip option, and boy oh boy I cannot wait to make these cookies again. Slightly green, and absolutely fabulous. Thank you for the awesome recipe!

      Yayyy! I always get so happy when someone tries my recipe and enjoys it. Isn’t the light grrenish color beautiful?! 🙂

    Oh my gosh, these are amazing. I’ve made them twice so far and many more times to come. They taste like chocolate chip cookie dough. I under cook them slightly so they are super gooey. Also, I do a sugar/pur via (stevia) blend and I add a little extra salt. 5 stars! Bravo!

    • Abeer Rizvi September 15, 2015 10:59 pm

      Woohoo! I get so excited when I hear people like one of my recipes! I also toss in some nuts and raisins which makes them great for breakfast on the go…lol 😉

    is there anything you can substitute the sugar with other than stiva??

    • Abeer Rizvi January 14, 2016 11:17 am

      I haven’t tried any substitutions. So, I don’t know how that would work out but if you do try out other changes, please let me know 🙂
