These chocolate avocado cookies are made without any butter or oil, but they’re just as rich and chocolatey as a classic cookie! Try this healthy recipe for a tasty dessert.


  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and peeled (about 1/2 cup mashed)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar) firmly packed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour or all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup mini-chocolate chips


  1. Move your oven rack to the middle position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. In a food processor, combine the avocado, egg, vanilla, and sugar. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use hand mixer, but be sure to blend until the avocado is completely smooth.
  4. Stir in the salt, baking soda, flour, and cocoa until there are no streaks.
  5. Stir in the chocolate chips until combined.
  6. Drop rounded tablespoons onto the baking tray, leaving 2 inches between cookies.
  7. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Do NOT over bake them!
  8. Remove from the oven and let them cool for 1 minute, then transfer to a cooling rack.
