Double Dark Chocolate Brownie cookies with Avocado

Chocolate? YES PLEASE!!

How about with a side of avocado? Ermm, yeah about that... er you think we could do without the avocado?

That is the typical response I got from my family and friends when I suggested chocolate avocado cookies. I am here to tell you that chocolate and avocado are truly a match made in heaven. I made them and my family loved them. We were all back to being friends :) Best part is - takes a total of 20 minutes only!!!!

My recipe is a paleo one which means its gluten free, dairy free and mostly processed sugar free. I am trying to be more healthy this year remember -

Heres what they look like -

I know right!! How amazing do these look!! They are so fudge and yummy. May just have to make them again.

Here is the recipe:


  • Flesh of 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cup of coconut sugar (feel free to use normal sugar)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of unsweetened cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (or milk, up to you)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda optional ( I made the the cookies pictured above without baking soda. I then made another batch with baking soda and they turned out like "muffin tops" - super delicious except less cookie-like and more cake-like)


  • Preheat over to 170 Degrees Celcius
  • Line tray with baking paper
  • Mix the avocado with the sugar until creamy and combined
  • Beat the egg and add to mixture
  • Add cacao powder and chocolate chips
  • In a separate dish, dissolve baking powder into the water. Add this to the avocado mixture (this step only if you are using baking soda)
  • Use a spoon to drop batter onto baking sheet, a few centimetres apart
  • Bake for 8-10 mins
  • Cool before serving

These were amazing. I made about 8 large cookies with this recipe. Let us know how they work for you.
