Triple Chocolate Avocado Cookies Recipe

Meghan Yager | Cake 'n Knife Updated

Triple Chocolate Avocado Cookies are the most luscious cookie you'll ever bite into. The avocado makes them amazing!

You guys, I seriously can’t even handle these cookies right now. I’m kind of freaking out over them.

I probably ate about 5 or 6 of these bad boys as I was testing the recipe, trying to find the avocado in them and you can’t taste it at all. Apart from trying to taste the avocado, I was just doing very thorough research.

Very thorough delicious research. These cookies would not have turned out so delicious if I hadn't of eaten 6. Right?

Of course I love avocado and I wouldn’t mind having it in all the food I devour, but there’s something magical about substituting it for butter and having it be completely untraceable. It’s a healthy cookie, people.

Me. Meghan. I made a healthy cookie.

What is happening here, exactly?!

Don’t worry, it’s still me I promise. No AI robot has come to take over my life or anything. I’m still in here.

Really it all stemmed from me trying to figure out a crazy creative way to use avocados other than in guacamole, like in my breakfast tostadas with guacamole.

I wanted to bring something completely wild and different to the table, so why not throw some avocado in and triple the chocolate love?

Why not, indeed…

These triple chocolate avocado cookies are like little pillows - soft and absolutely luxurious. They practically melt in your mouth with every bite.

The texture is something I’ve never been able to perfect with any other cookie in my life and I think, aside from the killer triple chocolate flavor, that’s what really makes this cookie unique.

Plus, you can eat twice as many because of all those calories you’re saving. Nothing wrong with that at all, am I right? More cookies + more chocolate + avocado = this girl’s dream come true.

Triple Chocolate Avocado Cookies Recipe

    16 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 large Avocado, Ripe, peeled, pitted, and mashed well
  • 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Brown Sugar, Plus 2 tablespoons
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • pinch of Salt
  • 2 ounces Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 ounces White Chocolate Chips

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or grease with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together mashed avocado, sugars, egg, and vanilla until well-combined. Stir in the dry ingredients until combined. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop rounded 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoon dough balls onto the baking sheet. Note the dough will be pretty wet so you won’t be forming hard balls with the dough.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, until the center is set. They will still be fairly soft. Allow to rest at least 10 minutes before eating.
