Upon hearing avocado and chocolate, my first reaction was….hmmm. However, once you try one, you are immediately going to reach for another and ask for the recipe!
These are a decadent treat that will satiate your chocolate fix, appeal to your childhood love of soft-baked cookies and give you a healthy dose of your healthy fats for the day to keep you going!
1 c dark cocoa powder
1 c date sugar or coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking powder
¾ c whole wheat flour
¼ c dark chocolate chips
2 eggs or egg substitute
Preheat oven to 350F. Combine avocados and cocoa powder in a food processor. Separately mix flour, sugar, baking powder and chocolate chips. Add whisked eggs or substitute. Mix all ingredients together. Using a table spoon or an ice cream scoop, place spoonfuls of the dough onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
