An easy way to check if your avocado is ripe is to remove the top stem or cap of the avocado. A ripe avocado has an easy to remove the cap with a light green color underneath.
Another way to check avocado ripeness is the skin color, ripe avocado has darker skin or the texture. give a gentle pressure on the fruit, it should be firm and slightly tender. If too soft, your avocado is too ripe and will show dark spots.
Should we call those avocado peanut butter cookies? because yes, those are the most delicious fudgy keto chocolate cookies with peanut butter. While any other nut butter or seed butter works in this avocado chocolate cookies recipe, I highly recommend using peanut butter. Make sure you are using fresh runny nut butter. Old nut butter gets hard and makes recipe fail because it does not add enough healthy fat from the nuts.
To make a chia egg you need to combine 1 tablespoon of chia seed with 3 tablespoons of water. Set aside for 10 minutes until an egg-like texture form. Use as an egg in this recipe to create vegan avocado cookies. You see, vegan can do the keto diet too. I originally use one egg in this recipe but as my husband is vegan, I like to test keto vegan options for most of my recipes.

Monk fruit syrup is made of pure Monk fruit, vegetable gum, and stevia. It contains no carbs; no calories and it is natural. Therefore, this option is the best liquid sugar-free sweetener for diabetics or anyone on a keto diet.

This is optional but if you love chocolate chips cookies adding a handful of sugar-free chocolate chips in your avocado cookies will make those even better. You can make your own sugar-free chocolate chips easily following my recipe or simply buy some from the store. Make sure they are made with a diabetic-friendly sugar-free sweetener like Monk fruit or erythritol – not Maltitol or xylitol.
