A healthy take on a chocolate chip cookie with a surprising tint.


Units Scale
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup avocado, fresh
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups (about 12 ounces) semisweet and/or milk chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. With a mixer, cream the avocado until smooth. Add sugars, mix to incorporate. Add the vanilla, and then eggs, one at a time. Mix until smooth. Add the flour mixture and gently mix to incorporate. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  4. Chill the dough for 30+ minutes before scooping onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet in 1/8 cup balls, then flatten slightly. Bake for 15-17 minutes, or until tops begin to brown slightly.


  • These cookies are best enjoyed the same day they are baked.
