These rich, decadent double-chocolatey cookies will delight your entire family and houseguests this holiday season.  Shh…don’t tell them they’re healthy!

Ingredients:

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 Tbsp water

1 very ripe avocado

1/4 cup maple syrup or honey

1 egg

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 ounce very well chopped unsweetened dark chocolate

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.
  2. Mix the baking soda and the water in a small bowl (or a cup) and set aside.
  3. Using an electric hand mixer (or your muscles and a whisk!), whip the avocado very well. Add the maple syrup (or honey) and continue whipping until smooth.
  4. Add the egg and incorporate well.
  5. Then add the cocoa powder a little at a time while continuing to mix on slow/medium speed. Once it’s all added, turn the speed back up to high, and mix well.
  6. Add the baking soda/water while still mixing on high.
  7. Add the chopped chocolate and stir to combine. The dough will be fairly soft.
  8. Using a 2 Tbsp scoop, or 2 tablespoons worth, plop the cookie dough onto the prepped cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Flatten the cookie oh so slightly with a spoon. You can also do 1 tbsp sized cookie (which makes a nice, bite sized cookie), just adjust the baking time.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They will seem a bit underdone and that’s a-o.k.
  10. Let cool on the cookie sheet on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes, then move to the wire rack to finish cooling.
