It may sound crazy but the combination of chocolate and avocado create a rich, smooth and decadent texture without any hint of avocado. Avocado offers healthy fats, fiber and makes any smoothie or treat you’re making - in this case, batter - super thick and creamy!
Using avocado in your baked good recipes is a perfect healthy substitute for butters or oils and the Cacao Magic gives these cookies a rich, chocolate flavor with extra nutrients!
This recipe was created by Kelly and originally adapted from a recipe by Blair of @balancewithb.
1 ripe avocado
½ cup coconut sugar
1 cage-free egg
1 tbsp water
Dash of vanilla extract
¼ tsp baking powder
¼ cup Cacao Magic
¼ cup cacao powder
Large handful of chocolate chips
Sprinkle of sea salt
Mash avocado and mix well with coconut sugar, egg, water and vanilla until creamy and smooth.
Add in baking powder, Cacao Magic and cacao powder, scraping sides of bowl until well incorporated.
Fold in chocolate chips and scoop heaping tablespoons of dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Top with a few more chocolate chips for good measure & a touch of sea salt, then bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 12 minutes. These will be super fudgy, but firm up as they cool! Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
