CHOCOLATE CHERRY COOKIES!

Brace yourself, because these chocolate cherry cookies are out-of-this-world delicious. Gooey, rich, sweet and deceptively healthy, this recipe is simply amazing. We used avocado as the base — surprising, we know! — along with just a handful of other ingredients resulting in a cake-like treat bursting with velvety, chocolate flavor. But the best part is that you’re getting a burst of skin loving antioxidants from the cacao along with a tasty dose of healthy fats from the avocado.

Kids and hubbies will love these too…this recipe fools even the finickiest of eaters!

CHOCOLATE CHERRY COOKIES

makes 8 cookies

INGREDIENTS 

  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbs oat flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/3 cup of dried cherries

DIRECTIONS 

Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Add all ingredients, except cherries, to a bowl and use a mixer to blend. You can also add ingredients to the blender or food processor. Once batter is smooth, fold in cherries and if you’re feeling naughty add a handful of chocolate chips to the mix too.

Drop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes. These cookies will not spread very much. Dust with some Perfect Fit Protein and chocolate shavings.

    Sound delicious! What can I replace the coconut sugar with?

    1. Samantha says:

      I’ve had success with using it interchangeably with brown sugar, though brown sugar might add a little more moisture to the recipe. If you are in the states you can find coconut sugar almost anywhere though – my middle-of-nowhere Walmart carries the madhava brand for pretty cheap!

        Thank you! :) I’ve never seen it before, but then again I haven’t looked. :P
        Thanks for the help!

  2. Katrina says:

    OMG these look amazing!!! I would make these right now but we are all doing the 7 DAY SLIM DOWN starting tomorrow!! ah! this is torture, ladies! hahaha

  3. Μαρία says:

    Because I live in Greece and I don’t know where they sell coconut sugar and oat flour, can I use instead brown sugar and regular flour?Or the flour that we use to make cakes?

    1. Katie Hayft says:

      For oat flour just put regular oats into a food processor. Try looking online for coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is a healthier alternative to regular sugar

  4. Emily says:

    im guessing these are not slim down approved??

  5. Kendall says:

    Think if I made these vegan by subsituting applesauce for the egg they would still taste good?

    Remembered these from LYB challenge and just getting around to making them. They are surprisingly yummy. I baked for about 15-18 mins because they were too soft at 10 mins. Replaced cherries with cranberries since this is what I had on hand. This is a really good base mixture! Could easily add nuts, other dried fruits, and I bet amazing with choc chips as suggested. Enjoying now with a cup of hot tea. :) Calculated calorie content ~97-110 per cookie depending on batch size (I made 7).

  7. Do you have an alternate ingredient that I can use instead of a ripe avocado?? I’m allergic to avocado :( And I would LOVE to make these one day!!!
