Chocolate Avocado Cookies (dairy-free)

April 27, 2018

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.
