Gluten-free, Dairy-free, Sugar-free
Avocados are all the craze these days, and its no wonder why! These fruits are creamy and delicious and pack a powerful punch! Growing up, we would eat these in our salads and usually only on special occasions, and I would gobble them all up. Now we have the luxury to eat them as often as we want as they are so abundant in the grocery stores. We have also expanded their use as a simple vegetable (even though they are really a fruit but we eat them like a vegetable) into many different types of desserts!!! That’s because they contain an oil that lends a great creamy texture into whatever you chooose to bake it into.
Instead of chucking your avocados when they have rippened too much or turned a little brown, make this recipe instead!!
Here is a little trick…… you know how one day the avocados are perfect and then the next day…boom! they are brown and too ripe to eat. This happens to me too so don’t worry, just use them in this recipe!!! These cookies freeze really well too. Because of the avocado fats they come out super fudgy and chewy and taste oh so decadent!
I choose to make these cookies sugar-free by using Monk Fruit crystal sweetener. However you can substitute an equal amount of any other sugar you prefer such as coconut sugar or cane sugar, however if you do they will no longer be sugar-free.
There are so many benefits to eating avocados, and why they are good for your body….. and here are some reasons why:
- Loaded with up to 20 vitamins and minerals
- Contain healthy monounsaturated fats that contribute to a healthy heart
- Contain plant hormones that help reduce inflammation
- Contain Lutein and zeaxanthin good for eye health
To make these cookies, combine your wet ingredients in a separate bowl from your dry ingredients, then mix up the two. Super simple. I used Organika collagen powder in these to give them a boost, but you can easily omit it if you don’t have. Be sure not to overcook them though if you want to keep that fudgy texture!!
