Avocado, Cinnamon, Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookies

This cookie recipe uses a ripe avocado to take the place of some of the butter found in most cookie recipes.

The avocado gives the cookies a smoother texture without contributing too much to the flavor profile. And no, the cookies won’t come out green.

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 cup flour (I used a mix of what and white)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Avocado, Cinnamon, Chocolate Chip and Pecan Cookie Dough

  • 1 cup chopped pecans

  3. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl except pecans, chocolate chips and cinnamon chips. Stir until smooth.
  4. Fold in remaining ingredients.
  5. Use a spoon to scoop batter into 1/2-inch rounds on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until golden-brown around the edges. Let cool for a few minutes and serve.

These cookies are very simple and can go from mixing bowl to oven to plate in about 30 minutes.

Enjoy them with a big glass of milk.
