Amazing, Delicious, Soft, Chewy and HEALTHY – My Favorite Avocado Cookies
December 20, 2021
Who doesn’t love cookies?
I mean, my kiddos could LIVE on them…literally. What’s not to love? They are so soft, yummy, and if you are like me, just the right amount of sweet. Even though we love cookies they aren’t the pinnacle of health food so here is my favorite recipe that takes a twist on an old favorite and makes it not only a little more healthy but takes them into the health food realm.
These are quick and easy and the best part is they taste great. My children even love them and I’m guessing yours will too.
1 cup coconut flour 1 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp sea salt 1/4 cup cacao powder 2 ripe bananas 1/4 ripe avocado (that’s about 1/4 cup) 1 cup alternative milk of your choice (I love unsweetened almond) 4 tbsp honey 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 eggs 1/2 cup shredded coconut 2/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375
In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients.
In another more substantial blow, add in the remaining ingredients, mashing the banana and avocado with a fork. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Make sure to work out any clumps of coconut flour.
Spoon out about two tablespoons of dough and form into a ball, placing it on a parchment lined baking sheet. Continue this process until you’ve created all of your round cookies.
Bake the cookies for 20 minutes, or until golden browned.
*If you want them slightly doughy in the middle after baking then keep in a ball. If you want more of a cooked cookie, press down the tops slightly, flattening them out.
