Gluten Free Avocado Chocolate Chunk Cookies!

I am a huge fan of gluten. Always have been. But I recently found out that I have a high sensitivity to gluten. This is the girl that slapped the hashtag #glutenforever on a recent Instagram post (oh the irony). I decided to start cutting out my beloved gluten in baby steps. Baking was my first challenge because boy, do I love to bake. And of course, eat baked goods like any normal person. It's still a challenge but I've found a few successes and these cookies are definitely one of them! They're super chocolately and fudgey and delicious! Oh and did I mention they're really easy and filled with healthy fats? Hello, Avocado!

Gluten Free Avocado Chocolate Chunk Cookies

  • 3/4 cup avocado flesh (about one medium avocado)
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a bowl using a hand mixer (or pulse everything in a blender or food processor), mix together avocado and sugar until smooth. Add in the egg.
  3. Mix in cocoa powder and baking soda. Add in chocolate chunks.
  4. Using two spoons, place dollops of cookie dough on a prepared baking sheet with parchment paper. The cookie won't spread as much as usual, so flatten them out a bit with the back of a spoon.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until cookies no longer stick to the parchment paper.
  6. Cool down and keep in an airtight container in the fridge!

*This recipe makes 8-10 medium size cookies or 6 large cookies. Enjoy!
