Healthy Chocolate Avocado Cookies

This time I am back with another dessert recipe, named Healthy Chocolate Avocado Cookies. Since I am posting dessert recipes regularly, you may think that I am a big fan of unhealthy diet. That’s not true,although I can’t control myself sometimes, especially when I prepare a delicious dessert for a party with my friends. Since our day-to-day food is healthy, balanced and less greasy.  Whenever I bake cakes or cookies for regular eating ,  try to make it in such a way that it will have less sugar and no butter.  So this time my health-conscious zero-figure friends don’t need to worry after hearing the word dessert because It’s made of healthy ingredients.

Chocolate Avocado Cookies  are very rich, fudgy and very soft. They taste like bite-sized brownies and perfect for dessert or as an afternoon snack. It may sound weird that that I have used avocado in chocolate cookies, instead of using butter. I used mashed avocado only because it’s incredibly nutritious and a great source of healthy fat. If you use mashed avocado in any baked goodies as a substitute for butter or oil, It gives a creamy smooth texture. At the same time adds the richness and moisture to it. Interestingly you will never know there is avocado in these cookies because it won’t interfere with the decadent chocolate taste here. 

As usual I had initial hesitation to try out this recipe but trust me they are best chocolate cookies I have ever made. Since this recipe is made with no butter, no milk and no eggs, we can call this recipe a great one for vegans. ( if you use almond milk in the place of milk ) So why is the wait, try this healthy Cookies and satisfy your chocolate cravings without any guilty feelings.
