Avocado Chocolate Cookies

Avocado Chocolate Cookies

I began a search for healthy cookies, mainly made with whole foods and no white or brown sugar in the ingredients   Below is another cookie you have to try!

Avocado Chocolate Cookies

  • 1 avocado flesh (ripe, but not brown)
  • 1 banana (ripe, but not brown)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup dark cocoa powder (I filled the avocado peel as my measuring cup -fill about 1/2 way full)
  • Sprinkle dark chocolate chunks (I used about 1/4-1/2 cup with 85% cocoa)
  • ½ tsp. baking soda

Baking Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C / 350° F.
  2. 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.
  3. Mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda.
  4. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  5. 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.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies don’t stick as much to the paper as they did before baking.
  7. Cool down. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Having six children in six years and a husband that supports me in all I do, has given me much to live for. However, the reason why I live is because of Jesus. I can’t imagine going a day without the hope He gives and the freedom for which my soul and spirit can thrive. After receiving my bachelors from ORU in O/I COM, I decided to get more training to hone my skills. I am a certified personal trainer, multi-certified fitness instructor, wellness and life coach. Most of us know a rock solid workout and nutrition plan isn’t going to make us healthy – there is way more to the equation. I’m here to help sift it out and challenge you to find your peace, calling, desires, and purpose in life through every avenue of your being; physical, spiritual, mental, emotional, and social all through a Godly perspective. If you have an inward desire to totally transform your inner health along side the physical, grab your sneakers and tighten up your laces because you are about to embark on a journey like nothing you’ve experienced – if you allow it to happen.
