I am IN LOVE with these cookies! It may sound like a strange ingredient to add in a dessert, but trust me it does work!

Avocados can be used in baking as a substitute for butter/oil. The benefit of using avocados is that it contains less saturated fats ‘bad fats’ compared to dairy butter.

It is not low in calories due to its high fat content but it’s unsaturated fat which is beneficial for the body.  It’s also rich in potassium, vitamin K, B, C and B6

So these cookies will be oil free, dairy free and potentially sugar free

  1. Hi there! I just found your site and am excited to try your recipes 🙂 I just started converting to clean eating and I’m trying to find sweet alternatives :-p My sister likes using avacado in dishes but I havent tried it yet! I’ll have to give these a try! Do you come up with the recipes on your own, or adapt them from other recipes?

    1. Hi there Katie 🙂 I’m glad you’ve decided to try a clean eating diet. Hope it’s going well 🙂

      I love using avocado in baking, it’s a great alternative to butter/oil and gives baked goods a soft and rich texture.

      I get inspirations from many places – foods I’ve tried, foods that I’ve always loved but that are on the unhealthy side, and of course the internet and social media provides a great source for ideas!

      Let me know if you tried these cookies 🙂 x
