Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 Cups Whole wheat pastry flour (312g)
  • 2 tsp Cornstarch
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Cup Raw organic cane sugar
  • 1/2 cup Mashed avocado About 1 avocado (126g)
  • 1/3 Cup Coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 large Egg yolk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 1/2 Cup + 2 Tbsp Chocolate chips (can use dairy free)

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl,combine the whole wheat pastry flour, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the mashed avocado, sugars, vanilla, egg and the egg yolk, with an electric mixer. Beat until well combined, and there is no lumps.
  3. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the avocado mixture.
  4. Add the chocolate chips, and mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
  5. Place the bowl in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes

  6. Heat your oven to 325 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

  7. Use a cookie scoop to roll the dough into balls (lightly heaping out of the cookie scoop) and place onto the parchment paper. Press out just under 1/2 inch thick.

  8. Bake for 13 minutes. They will seem underdone, but that's good! They cook a bit more on the sheet afterwards.
  9. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet COMPLETELY.

  10. DEVOUR!

Recipe Notes

Whole wheat PASTRY flour is key here. If you use regular whole wheat flour, your cookies will be dense. The pastry flour gives them the texture that all purpose flour would. I use Bobs Red Mill Organic Whole Wheat Pastry, available at most grocery stores.

Your dough will seem very sticky when forming it into balls (having damp hands help it not stick to your fingers!) this is due to the extra eggs. It is totally how it should be, and will keep these cookies so soft!
