Foodie Wednesday: Vegan Fudgy Dark Chocolate with Avocado Cookies

Yes, avocado. In a cookie. It's totally weird for me, but it's surprisingly delicious! While my favorite avocado dessert is still this truly Filipino one, I have to admit, this one's really, really good too.


Fudgy Dark Chocolate with Avocado Cookies
Recipe from Two Peas and their Pod

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup Dutch processed cocoa (*The next time I do this, I'd probably go for 1/2 cup instead)
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup mashed avocado
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (*I used whole milk since I only have almond-coconut milk)
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips

Instructions:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350F. Grease your cookie tray with oil/butter.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. 
  3. In your mixer, beat the oil, avocado and sugars until smooth. This takes more or less 3 minutes.
  4. Add the vanilla extract.
  5. Interchange mixing the half of the flour mixture, milk and the rest of the flour. Do not overbeat - just until the flour is completely incorporated in the dough.
  6. Add in the chocolate chips.
  7. Using a tablespoon, scoop out the dough and form a ball. Flatten the ball a bit, then lay on the cookie tray. Allot an inch in between cookies.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes (*Mine was already done by 8.30/9 minutes) or until the edge has set. The rest would be soft to the touch.
  9. Let it cool in the pan for a couple of minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
