double dark chocolate avocado cookies

Welcome to Meatless Monday! These cookies I have to share today? They are amazing. Seriously.

So it’s dark chocolate week again, right?

I chose a recipe with chocolate, but I think the star in this case is avocado. Many of you know I love my dark chocolate, and it is essential here, but the avocado makes these cookies positively melt in your mouth fluffy soft.

So very rich and flavorful, too.

Look at that puffy fluffy:

I chose Laura’s chocolate avocado cookies from last week, and am so happy I did. Some of the best cookies I have had in a while. I used her vegan version (using flax + water in place of egg, in addition to a tiny teaspoon of Ener-G egg replacer powder).

I also used more chocolate chips, because that is just how I do.

The cookie dough seemed more like a batter, so I placed the whole bowl in the freezer for several minutes to firm it up, before scooping it into cookies.

The result is a very flavorful, soft and fluffy cookie. Seriously melt in your mouth – so good.

I’ve seen a few avocado cookie recipes lately and you know how much I love the green goodness. Considering how buttery it is, I guess it makes sense for the cookies!

it absolutely makes sense – I cannot wait to experiment, as you know I will ;)

Yours look much more appealing than the pictures in the other blog…I think due to the lighter color! Did you use less cocoa powder?

10 Kristina Sloggett May 23, 2013 at 9:22 am

hi Sam, not sure why the difference in color – I followed the recipe quantities exactly; I did mash the avocado very well, which may have lightened the cookie dough more? (the original recipe has more pieces of avocado it seems). either way, an amazing cookie! :)

I am so glad you liked them!!! Avocado is the best… and the more chocolate chips, the merrier. :)

Happy Monday!!!

the more chocolate the merrier? just might be my new motto ;)

I’d never have thought you could use avocado for baking! :D

I know… SO good! :) being a healthy fat, I suppose it is a replacement for oil/butter…

I have never used avocados in baking before–they all seem to fall into my mouth on toast, or on top of tacos, or maybe chopped up in salads. But! These cookies look so soft and fluffy and delicious that I may have to give it a try. :)

I know… any given day you can find me standing in the kitchen, holding a half avocado, salt and a spoon… Mmm…

I love using avocados in anything, but especially desserts. I made some chocolate chip cookies using avocados and they were great! But since chocolate is my first love, I think I’m gonna have to try these next time.

I’ve never heard of avocados in a cookie… and this is from a girl who made ice cream out of an ostrich egg… so I’m going to have to try this! Thanks!

Amy I like the way you think! you will surely love these cookies…

I’ve been wanting to try baking with avocado for a couple months now — after looking at how soft & fluffy these look, I think it’s time to take the plunge!

yes, make these immediately, please! (menu item ;) )

You, Laura and Heather are all amazing in the kitchen. Bring on the chocolate and a glass of wine to “cheers” to you all. :) That sounded bad….
Have a great day Kris.

Everyone seems to be making this recipe and I need to get on the bandwagon! I even have some frozen avocado stored up (and yup, I’ll go your rout and add in some extra chocolate goodness ;D )

These absolutely do look “melt in your mouth” delicious! Luckily, I just re-stocked on both chocolate chips and avocados! ;-)

I loved seeing the photos of you with Ricki and Annelies! :-) So glad you had such a fun time with so many!

xoxo,
Shirley
