I taunted you with this recipe a couple weeks ago on Instagram. Today I present to you: Peanut Butter Avocado Cookies! Yep, you read that right. I promise you can’t taste the avocado.
This is the first cookie experiment I’ve done in a while…and after 3 tries, I think they’re pretty darn good! Plus the recipe is super simple. I didn’t even use any flour.
- ⅓ c mashed avocado
- ⅔ c peanut butter
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp agave nectar or honey
- ¾ c oats
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ½ c dark chocolate chips
- Combine wet ingredients until well mixed.
- Add dry ingredients.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Scoop onto baking sheet and flatten slightly with a fork.
- Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.
These cookies are gluten-free if you use certified gluten-free oats…and you could make them vegan. The first time I made these, I made them without the egg. They tasted great, but they were a little crumbly. I think they’d work pretty well with a flax egg but I haven’t tried it!
Hubby & I both ate two for dessert! Dig in, friends.
