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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

I had a larger avocado so I reduced the butter to 1/4 cup. I also used half whole wheat flour and half all purpose. I wanted my kids to eat these and I was afraid the color would turn them off since they know I add wheat flour to other baked goods so I added 1/2 cup cocoa powder. It worked they loved them.

These were delicious and a score in my endless quest to sneak healthy things into my picky eater. My avocado was a little less ripe than ideal so I had to transfer the wet ingredients to my food processor to really purée the avocado and eliminate any sign of green chunks. I subbed oat flour for 1/2 c of the white and almond flour for 1/4 c, which upped the nutritional value without impacting texture of taste. I also reduced the brown sugar from 3/4 c to 1/2 c. The whole family likes these, I think they will become a staple for us! Thank you Read More

Followed the recipe exactly except for substituting 1 cup of whole wheat flour in place of part of the all purpose flour. These were great and we couldn't stop eating them. Read More

I wasn t sure about this recipe but was intrigued and I had two ripe needing to be used avocados. The taste was great. The only change I made was to use a brown sugar/ stevia mix to replace the white sugar and the brown sugar that was called for in the recipe. Very tasty easy to make. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
