Healthy Chocolate Avocado Cookies

These easy and healthy chocolate avocado cookies are pillowy soft, rich and fudgy. Fill them with creamy frosting and transform them into cookie sandwiches.

One of my FAVORITE things to do is REPLACING unhealthy ingredients with healthy ingredients in my go-to recipes, which is what I did with these healthy chocolate avocado cookies.

Here are some of my most common healthy replacements…

  • Replacing eggs with flax seeds or applesauce.
  • Replacing full fat milk or heavy cream with almond milk, coconut milk or soy milk because they are lower in calories and more nutritious.
  • Replacing butter and margarine with coconut oil or olive oil or even mashed avocados.

I love baking with AVOCADOS  because they add so much RICHNESS and MOISTURE to my treats and they are so good for you as well.

A couple of years ago, I made this oil-free and butter- free Avocado marble cake and it’s the softest, moistest cake ever!

Today, I am sharing the recipe for these HEALTHY chocolate avocado cookies with you!

They are great for VEGANS since they are made with NO butter, NO milk and NO eggs.

These cookies are very RICH and FUDGY and pillowy SOFT.

You kinda feel like you are eating a bite sized BROWNIE! 😉

I also tried making these avocado cookies with COCONUT SUGAR, which is a healthier alternative to granulated or brown sugar. They tasted great but their shape was a little different.
