i got the idea from this recipe on sprouted fig.  i don’t do sugar, even coconut sugar, right now though.

here’s how i adjusted it to be low carb (if you are a trim healthy mama, it would be an S):

2 avocados, ripe
1/2 cup sweetener, like Gentle Sweet or Truvia
1 doonk of THM Stevia (substitute other brands at your own risk.  others can have strange aftertastes for me.)
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened chocolate powder
4 oz 85% dark chocolate chips/chunks
1 teaspoon baking soda

i used sproutedfig’s cooking instructions.

  1. Preheat oven to 175°C / 350° F.
  2. In a bowl using a hand mixer (or make everything in a food processor), mix together avocado and coconut sugar until smooth. Add in the egg.  (<– i used a food processor.  super easy.)
  3. Mix in the cocoa powder and baking soda.
  4. Stir in chocolate chunks.
  5. Using two spoons place dollops of cookie dough in a baking sheet with parchment paper. The cookie won’t spread as much as usual cookies when baking, so make sure to flatten them out a bit with the back of the spoon. (<– i used a cookie scoop and used coconut oil spray on a cookie sheet and skipped the parchment.  no problem getting them off.)
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookies don’t stick as much to the paper as they did before baking. (<– i did 10.  they will look BURNT.  but they aren’t, i promise.  they are actually SUPER moist.)
  7. Cool down. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

the hubs and i have observed that they taste better after they have cooled down.  the batter tastes really sweet, the warm cookies not so much… and the cooled down cookies seem to have a proper sweetness proportion.  of course, sweetness is a personal preference, so proceed to add or take away as you would like.

hope you enjoy! :)

*VARIATION: of course, if you want to try different combos, one of my hubs’ favorites is to drop 4-5 drops of Young Living’s peppermint essential oil in there! OH MY HEAD!  sooooo good!*

    Hello, these look amazing.I’m wondering about the egg. In the ingredients it says 2 eggs, but in the instructions, you mention add “the egg”- so should it be one or two?
    Thanks so much!
