Avocado Choc Chip Cookies

Here is a very special new recipe for you guys to try out and I highly recommend giving it go because these cookies are amazing! When making these I had a few issues especially with the recipe being in cups because I forgot that cups to grams conversion is dependent on the substance (why you gotta be like that America?). Also, these cookies don’t melt out like regular cookies so when I say flatten, make them as flat as you want your cookies to turn out. On a positive: these are VEGAN and I have included the macros below!

Ingredients

1 1/4 cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon of baking powder

2/3 cup of cocoa powder

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup of mashed avocado

1/4 cup of granulated sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

1/3 cup of almond milk

1/2 cup of vegan chocolate chips (I used Sainsbury’s free from chocolate buttons)

 

Method

  1. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper and pre-heat the oven to 180’c
  2. Mix together the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder in a bowl
  3. In a separate bowl beat together the coconut oil, avocado, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy and then add the vanilla extract
  4. Fold in half of the flour mix, add the almond milk and then fold the remaining flour mix followed by the chocolate chips
  5. Roll the cookie dough into tablespoon balls and flatten them out on the baking tray about two inches apart
  6. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, once finished leave to cool and move to a cooling rack

Time for another food post!

I’ve had this recipe for a few years now on how to make chocolate chip cookies. It’s the perfect recipe for big, warm, gooey cookies and i think everyone should give it a go because they are the best!

To begin with you’re going to need 250 grams of all purpose flower, 2 grams of baking powder, 170 grams of unsalted butter (softened), a whole lot of sugar; 220 grams of packed brown and 100 grams of white, 15ml (around a table spoon) of vanilla extract, 1 egg and 1 egg yolk.

Start by preheating the oven to 165’c and line a baking tray (or 2 if you can) with greece proof paper.

Take a big bowl and sift in the flower and baking powder, set this aside as you’ll need it later.

In a separate bowl mix together the softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar thoroughly. Then beat in the egg and egg yolk until you have a light, creamy mix!

Add the wet mix to the flower and ix it altogether, it should look something like cookie dough. Once it does chuck in as many chocolate chips as you’d like and mix them in using a wooden spoon.

Now you’ve got your dough, it’s ready to go in the oven. I recommend placing 3-4 dollops of dough on a baking tray at a time to ensure they have enough room to flatten out without touching each other or the sides. However, if you’re not bothered by this then there is no need. When i made the cookies for this post it meant doing to rounds of cooking with 11 cookies.

Place the cookies in the oven for between 15-17 minutes, 15 minutes is usually enough for me but it depends on your oven. Once they are ready to come out, let them sit as the tops will still be soft to touch. After around 5-7 minutes you can transfer them to a plate or chopping board (somewhere flat) to fully cool down and then place the second batch in the oven.

And there you have it! Big, warm, gooey cookies! Let me know in the comments how yours turn out and if you decide to put anything other than chocolate chips in them!!
