Wholesome complete grain avocado chocolate chip cookies
This Healthy whole grain avocado chocolate chip cookies are so soft and chewy that you will never believe they are butter free and better for you!
In all honesty, these are some of my favorite cookies I have ever made.
Even more so than the egg-free chocolate chip cookies or paleo cookies with chocolate chips which, don't get me wrong, are still totally delicious BUT there is only something about the taste of these cookies that GETS ME.
I told you about my favorite saying "You can't please everyone, you're not an avocado" in the recipe for grilled avocados and I think I might like that so much.
Everything is better with avocados.
Why these are the BEST healthy chocolate chip cookies
After a long, busy day, nothing beats a plate of cookies and this is all about them on the blog! Almond flour oat cookies, chocolate quinoa cookies, ANY cookies at all, send them to me. Today's wholesome cookies are such a game changer because they're made from wholesome ingredients that you'll be comfortable eating with, but in the form of cookies – what could possibly be better than that? They're also super easy to throw together and make great snacks or treats any time of the day.
Bake with avocado
It's no secret that avocado is trendy – especially when it comes to toast – but did you know that you can actually use avocado instead of butter in some recipes? Since it is made of fat like butter, it makes baked goods tender, moist and tough. BUT it's better for you fat what makes these heart healthy cookies!
Some of my favorite ways to bake with avocado are the chocolate avocado cake, the German chocolate cake, and the avocado cheesecake truffle!
Baking with avocado also gives these cookies a fun green color. But not as intense as the green cranberry-pistachio bread.
Butter versus avocado when baking
And when I say "some" recipes, I really mean SOME, not all. So don't use avocado forever in all of your baking recipes. Avocado doesn't spread like butter. In recipes where you need them, like cookies, you can't just swap them out 1: 1. It has a different taste too, so you'll want to make sure you use it in a recipe that takes that into account, like these avocado cookies!
Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies Ingredients
To make these cookies you will need a few simple ingredients:
- Wholemeal pastry flour
- baking powder
- Cane sugar
- Coconut sugar
- Chocolate chips
Since I wanted to make these healthy chocolate chip cookies, we're using some ingredients that really improve the nourishing properties of these cookies!
Flour – Instead of all purpose flour, these cookies have wholesome whole grain goodness by using whole wheat pastry flour which is one of my favorite baking flours. If you want to make these gluten free, you can make these gluten free avocado cookies
sugar – Instead of using refined sugar, we use natural sugars like organic cane sugar and coconut sugar to make these whole grain chocolate chip cookies perfectly sweet. You can also use regular sugar and brown sugar if you don't have them on hand
fat – As mentioned earlier, we're swapping out avocado for butter to make these cookies a little better for you!
How to do Healthy chocolate chip cookies
In a medium bowl, add the pastry flour, cornstarch, salt and baking powder. Stir with a whisk and set aside. In a larger bowl, add the avocado, sugar, vanilla, egg and egg yolk and mix well with an electric mixer. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the avocado mixture. Add the chocolate chips and mix until everything is well incorporated.
Put the batter in the refrigerator to chill for about half an hour. In the meantime, line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and turn on the oven to preheat it. After cooling, scoop the dough into balls and place them evenly on the biscuits. Bake until done. If they still seem very soft, that's fine!
Let cool completely, then REMOVE!
How to store avocado chocolate chip cookies
These cookies are best kept in an airtight container. You can leave them on the counter for a day or two, but then it's best to keep them in the refrigerator for about a week. If you need to keep them longer, you can freeze them.
How to Freeze
Freezing your cookies is EASY.
- Let the cookies COMPLETELY cool
- Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
- Freeze, about 2-3 hours, until set. This step will help you avoid being all together when you freeze!
- Place them in an airtight container, label the freeze date, and freeze them for up to 3 months.
But once you try them I am ready to not need these steps.
Prediction: Will They Be Gone Before You Even Need To Cool Them?
What are the healthiest chocolate chips?
Organic dark chocolate chips are often the healthiest because they contain very little sugar. You can also check out your local supermarket for your favorite dairy-free and sugar-free chocolate chips!

Preparation: 10 protocol
Cook: 15th protocol
Total: 55 protocol
- 2 1/4 cups Wholemeal pastry flour (312 g)
- 2 TL Cornstarch
- 1 TL baking powder
- 1/2 TL salt
- 1 Cup Raw organic cane sugar
- 1/2 Cup Mashed avocado About 1 avocado (126 g)
- 1/3 Cup Coconut sugar (or brown sugar)
- 1 big egg
- 1 big egg yolk
- 1 TL vanilla
- 1/2 Cup + 2 tbsp Chocolate chips (can use dairy-free)
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the whole wheat flour, cornstarch, salt and baking powder together. Put aside.
- In a large bowl, beat the mashed avocado, sugar, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk with an electric mixer. Beat until everything is mixed well and there are no more lumps.
Slowly stir the flour mixture into the avocado mixture.
Add the chocolate chips and mix well until all the ingredients are combined.
Put the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
Using a cookie scoop, roll the dough into balls (easily heaped from the cookie scoop) and place on the parchment paper. Press out about 1 cm thick.
Bake for 13 minutes. They'll seem over the top, but that's a good thing! After that, cook a little more on the leaf.
Let the cookies COMPLETELY cool on the baking sheet.
Tips & Notes:
Whole wheat 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 have. I use Bob's Red Mill organic whole grain pastries, which are available at most grocery stores.
Your dough will appear very sticky if you shape it into balls (wet hands help it keep it from sticking to your fingers!). This is due to the extra eggs. It's exactly how it should be and will keep these cookies so soft!
