These sugar coated chocolate avocado cookies are kids approved.
When my son saw me making these cookies, you could see the disappointment in his face. Why ruin a cookie with avocado?? But after the first bite, he changed his mind and had a good helping of these amazing dairy-free cookies.
I love butter. And butter is a very important ingredient for making chewy or crispy cookies. We visited some friends yesterday and one of their boys is lactose intolerant, I wanted to bring something he could enjoy along with the other kids.
These chocolate avocado cookies were a hit with all the kids and the moms as well. It has a very intense chocolate flavor. It overpowers the avocado, so if you have people who don´t like avocado, they won´t even notice it.
The dough is very sticky. But you´ll manage to coat them in sugar. Because it doesn´t have any butter, the sugar helps with the little crunch you look in a cookie.
These cookies don´t expand much while baking. Use the bottom of a glass to flatten them.
Surprise your friends with these delicious dairy-free chocolate avocado cookies. They´ll be asking for more.
