Chocolate Chip Cookies with Avocado


I read that when baking you can replace half or all of the butter with mashed avocado to make it a little healthier. I got out my favorite cookie recipe from my dad and tried it. I replaced half the butter. They were still very yummy and I couldn't tell there was avocado in them.

3 dozen cookies


  • cooking spray

  • 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • ¾ cup brown sugar

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened

  • ½ cup mashed avocado

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 egg

  • 10 ounces chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.

  2. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Beat white sugar, brown sugar, butter, avocado, and vanilla extract together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy; beat in egg until smooth. Stir flour mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, into creamed mixture until dough is just mixed; stir in chocolate chips. Drop dough by the spoonful onto the baking sheets.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
