 California Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies

With Fresh California Avocados replacing some of the saturated fat, these cookies are out-of-this-world delicious! They’re also simple to throw together and can go from a tempting thought to a fabulous reality in less than an hour.

Ingredients

Serves: 48
1 1/4  cups  white whole wheat flour*
cup  all-purpose flour (you can also use 2 1/2 cups of the white whole wheat flour and omit the all-purpose flour, if desired)
tsp.  baking soda
tsp.  salt
1/2  cup  finely mashed avocado from 1 large, ripe California Avocado**
oz.  butter, at room temperature
cup  light brown sugar
pkg.  12-ounce semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2  cup  white sugar
  egg yolks, from 2 large eggs (save whites for another purpose or discard)
tsp.  vanilla extract

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Set aside.
  2. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium-size bowl. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat the mashed avocado and butter until smooth and creamy, about 30 seconds. Add the brown and white sugar and mix on medium speed until fluffy and well combined.
  4. Add egg yolks, one a time, mixing well after each addition. Add vanilla
  5. With mixer on low speed. slowly add flour mixture. Beat just until all flour is incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
  6. Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop up dough into rounded mounds on prepared sheet pans, spacing mounds two inches apart. Flatten slightly with your fingertips.
  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Serving Suggestion: Serve with tall glasses of ice cold milk or hot, steaming mugs of coffee.

Note: *White Whole Wheat Flour is readily available at larger grocers and has all the nutritional benefits of regular whole wheat flour.

** Baking is an exact science. 1 large avocado is approximately 1/2 cup. Be sure to measure. If you have a bit of extra avocado reserve it for another use (it makes a wonderful sandwich spread).
