I made these rich and delicious cookies the other day and they’ve done a fab job of satisfying my desire/ need for chocolate. The good news is that there are no nasties here, so enjoy! It’s also important for me to mention that although the main ingredient is avocado, you cannot taste this.
Unfortunately, I cannot take the credit for this genius recipe. It’s by Josefine atthesmoothielover.com. Here’s her wonderful recipe, which I have slightly adapted:
- 100 g. (3/4 cup) avocado flesh (very ripe, but not brown)
- 1 medium very ripe banana
- 1 egg
- ½ cup (120mL) dark cocoa powder
- 50 g. dark chocolate chunks (I used 85% cocoa)
- 1 tbsp honey
- ½ tsp. baking soda
Preheat oven to 175°C / 350° F.
In a bowl using a hand mixer (or make everything in a food processor), mix together avocado and banana until smooth. Add in the egg.
Mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda.
Stir in chocolate chunks.
Using two spoons place dollops of cookie dough in a baking sheet with parchment paper. The cookie won’t spread as much as usual cookies when baking, so make sure to flatten them out a bit with the back of the spoon.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies don’t stick as much to the paper as they did before baking.
Cool down. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Let me know what you think!
