Who wouldn’t want green cookies? Following along with all my favorite websites, I found this gem of a cookie recipe that not only contains one of our favorite fats, avocado, but also turns green. Green! Can’t you just see these green avocado cookies on a Christmas platter alongside a batch of red velvet cookies? The color is green but it is not a ‘I might die from the mold kind of green’- rather a festive green.
Now when someone says cookie, one doesn’t automatically think avocados right? Well, it is a little trick us vegans love to do to our recipes to add healthy fats into our diet while subtracting the unhealthy ones. It’s okay to substitute bananas in this recipe instead of the avocado but why not try something new and fun? The original recipe comes from the Nate and Rachael Website, a website written by a sweet family working towards sharing their lives raising two some ones while taking mission trips to boys in need in Guatemala.
This was originally not vegan so I made a few changes but not many. The recipe is super easy to put together and the cookies are just as good as if they were made with oil. Blindfolded no one would notice the difference in taste, in sight obviously the cookies are green so someone would notice something’s up. The cookies are soft and flaky, not hard and chewy.1 tsp flaxseed instead of the egg
1 c non-dairy chocolate chips (I used Ghiradelli Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips- accidentially vegan and available in most grocery stores) Again, these are only the substitutions that I made so that I was assured the cookies were vegan. Please look for the entire recipe at the wonderful site listed above and maybe take a peak at the mission trip this wonderful young couple is partaking in to better humanity. Nutritional Info
