The keto chocolate avocado cookies with chocolate chips are healthy 5-ingredient avocado peanut butter cookies with only 5 grams of net carbs per serving!

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

These EASY keto chocolate cookies are healthy 5-ingredient cookies with only 5.5g of net carbs per serving to satisfy your sweet tooth on a keto diet. Bonus, they are also vegan! Therefore, they can be included in a vegan keto diet. Read more about the egg-replacement options below.

What do you need to make keto chocolate avocado cookies?

As I mentioned before, those avocado cookies are EASY to make! – you will need a food processor or blender in this recipe to pulse the ripe avocado along with the liquid sweetener into a creamy smooth puree.

Mashing the avocado with a fork will leave avocado lumps in the cookie batter, and it won’t taste good. Let’s see the 5 basics ingredients you need to make these delicious keto chocolate cookies.

Is avocado keto?

Avocado is a good keto-friendly vegetable. It does contain 9 grams of carbs but 7 grams of fiber. This leaves only 2 grams of net carbs!

Plus, avocado is a great helper to reach your macro with 15 grams of good fat per 100 grams.

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

1. Ripe avocado – how can you tell if your avocado is ripe?

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 cap with a light green color underneath.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

Another way to check avocado ripeness is the skin color. Ripe avocados have darker skin and a rougher texture. Give a gentle squeeze to the fruit, and it should be firm and slightly tender. If too soft, your avocado is too ripe and will show dark spots.

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

2. Peanut Butter – those are avocado peanut butter cookies

To make these cookies fudgy and soft, use peanut butter – or any other nut or seed butter.

Make sure to choose natural peanut butter. While natural peanut butter made with only peanuts is perfectly keto-friendly, many processed peanut butter brands add sugar and glucose to the jar!

It is also important to use fresh runny nut butter. Old nut butter gets hard and makes recipes fail because it does not add enough fat from the nuts.

3. Eggs – or learn how to make chia egg for vegan avocado chocolate chip cookies

To make a chia egg, you need to combine one tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water.

Set aside for 10 minutes until an egg-like texture forms.

Use as an egg in this recipe to create vegan avocado cookies.

The texture of the vegan avocado chocolate chip cookies is less fudgy but still delicious.

4. Liquid sugar-free sweetener, what is the best sweetener for diabetics?

Monk fruit syrup is made of Monk fruit extract, 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 people with diabetes or anyone on a keto diet.

Other great diabetes-friendly sweeteners are sugar-free crystal sweeteners made of a combo of stevia and erythritol (or monk fruit) or stevia drops.

5. Unsweetened cocoa powder

6. Sugar-free chocolate chips

This is optional, but if you love chocolate chip cookies, adding a handful of sugar-free chocolate chips to your avocado cookies will make them even better.

You can make your own sugar-free chocolate chips easily following my recipe or buy some from the store.

Make sure they are made with a diabetic-friendly sugar-free sweetener like Monk fruit or erythritol – not Maltitol.

Can you eat avocados on a low-carb diet?

Avocado is a very healthy keto vegetable. It contains a high amount of healthy fats and a few net carbs.

Avocado is a great way to reach your fat macro while adding fiber to your keto diet.

It is also a great dairy-free option to great keto vegan recipes like keto chocolate avocado mousse.

How many carbs are in an avocado?

One cup of pureed avocado contains only 5 grams of net carbs. The size of avocado varies from their origin.

New Zealand avocados are smaller, about ½ cup, while Florida and California avocados are about 1 cup of pureed avocado (230 grams or 8 oz). The data below shows the nutriments for 1 cup of pureed avocado. You will get:

  • 34g total fat (27g from mono and polyunsaturated fat)
  • 20g of total carbohydrates
  • 15g of fiber
  • 5g net carbs – total carbs takeaway fiber
  • 5g natural sugar
  • 6g protein
  • 368 calories

On a low-carb keto diet, you count net carbs, calculated as total carbs takeaway fiber and sugar alcohols, which means that 1 cup of avocado brings you only 5 grams of net carbs.

The whole keto avocado cookies recipe contains ½ cup of pureed avocado or 2.5 grams of net carbs from the avocado.

What do bake avocados taste like?

Baked avocado has less flavor than fresh avocado but a more intense creamy, buttery texture that makes avocado perfect to replace butter in baking.

It makes delicious keto desserts like chocolate avocado brownies, chocolate avocado muffins, or these gluten-free chocolate avocado cookies.

That is the recipe you want if you can’t choose between a brownie or a cookie. These chocolate avocado cookies are the most delicious fudgy keto chocolate cookie EVER!

It has a slight avocado taste that you can easily cover by adding few extra drops of liquid stevia – see recipe notes.

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

How do you keep the cookie dough from sticking to the scoop? 

For a moist and sticky cookie dough, I recommend using a bowl of warm water.

First of all, dip your scoop into the warm water bath. Then, sample out the cookie dough. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the scoop.

Another option is to use two silicone spoons. This makes the process even easier.

Dip the silicone spoons into hot water, use one of the spoons to push out the batter from one spoon to the cookie tray.

Flatten the cookie surface with the back of the silicone spoon to create beautiful cookies.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F).
  • Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly oil the paper with 1/2 teaspoon of liquid vegetable oil (coconut or peanut oil). This will prevent the cookies from sticking to the paper. Set aside. 
  • In a food processor with the S blade attachment, add ripe avocado and sugar-free maple syrup (or liquid sweetener you like). Process for 30 seconds until it forms a creamy avocado batter with no lumps. 
  • Stop, add egg, nut butter, and cocoa powder. Process again for 30 seconds. Scrape the bottom and side of the bowl and process for an extra 15 seconds to make sure all the batter is combined - no lumps.
  • Transfer the chocolate cookie batter onto a mixing bowl. It will bit moist and sticky. That is what you want. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla - if used.
  • Combine with a spatula until the chocolate chips are evenly incorporated. Taste the batter and adjust with 2-3 drops of liquid stevia - only if you want a sweeter cookie. I did not add any to mine, and my kids love them, but if you have a sweet tooth, I recommend adding a few drops of stevia to make them sweeter. Add one drop at a time and see how it tastes. 
  • Prepare a small bowl with warm water, dip a spoon in the water, and use that spoon to sample some chocolate cookie batter from your bowl. The water will prevent the batter from sticking to your spoon.
  • Spoon the chocolate batter onto the baking sheet - I used another spoon to push the batter out of the first spoon.  Use a silicone spoon or spatula to flatten the cookie into a cookie shape. The batter won't stick onto silicone which makes it easier to spread.
  • Repeat until you form 6 jumbo cookies. Those cookies won't spread, so you don't need to leave more than half a thumb of space between each.
  • Sprinkle extra chocolate chips on top of each cookie if you like.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the center is set. 
  • Cool it down for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, then transfer onto a cooling rack to cool down.
  • Store the cookies in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container.

Low-carb/sugar-free: make sure you are using natural maple Flavored Sugar-Free Syrup and sugar-free chocolate chips.
Vegan option: swap egg for a chia egg. Combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water. Sit for 15 minutes then use it as an egg in the cookie batter.
Nut-free option: replace nut butter with sunflower seed butter here.

    Love making these Avo Cookies! A beautiful, silky batter that produces very generous portions, I add chunks of my fave 70% Dark Chocolate and it makes truly the darkest, fudgiest cookie out there, ready in only 15 mins. I’ve used Flax ‘Egg’ and Aquafaba to sub egg on two occasions and both bakes came out tops. A new fave and pretty dang healthy too, thank you Carine!

  2. 5 stars
    This looks sooooo awesome! Is there anything you’d suggest substituting for the Keto maple syrup? If I come
    Up with something, I’ll be making these tomorrow. Thanks

    • I am pretty sure crystal erythritol will work, same amount. They will be slightly drier I guess but good. Enjoy the recipes around here, XOXO Carine

      • Based on the recommendation, I made these using a quarter cup of Swerve as I had no liquid sweetener. It wasn’t remotely sweet.

  3. Hi there just love all your recipes. The Avocado Chocolate Cookies what would you suggest using instead of maple syrup we are trying to stay away from all sugars. Thanks Dorothy

    • Hi Dorothy! I am actually not using maple syrup in this recipe but sugar-free maple flavored syrup. It is made of monk fruit and it has baely few carbs and no sugar at all. You can find it here. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine

  4. 5 stars
    I made this recipe but with a bit of a twist (I’m at high elevation so math is always involved in my baking) I substituted the cocoa for chocolate protein powder (zero carb isopure is what i used)- I also cut the maple syrup in half. Lastly I added 1/4 cup almond milk since the elevation dried up anything i bake… and left the cookie as a mound. This left me with more of a soft gooey muffin top rather than a cookie but I am A-OK with this! They were delicious!

    • Thank you for sharing those precision details that I m sure will be helpful by people living on high elevation too. Enjoy, XOXO Carine

  5. Would a stick blender work instead of a processor, look forward to making them today. Love your recipes xx

    • It will, but it will probably be a bit more challenging to turn the avocado into a smooth puree with no lumps. Enjoy the cookies, XOXO Carine

    I’m over the moon for this cookie! If your not use to eating sugar substitutes and cocoa powder, chances are, you’re not going to care for these. For me, I’ve been on keto for a few weeks, this is my second time around doing keto, and I’ve yet to figure out the trick to using almond and/or coconut flour, or maybe my expectations are too high, reguardless, I’m happy I’ve found a cookie that doesn’t require either of those, and that taste good hot, but even better, after setting in the fridge over night. I’ve made these with and without Lily’s Chocolate Chips, both ways are great. I’ve gotten to where I only use half the amount of cocoa it calls for, that’s just a personal preference for me, as I don’t care much for a strong cocoa flavor. Thank you so much for this recipe.

    • Yeah! I am so glad you love those keto chocolate cookies. Thanks for trying my recipes an enjoy all the keto recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  7. Do you know of a good substitution for Avocado? I would love to make these cookies, but I would need a substitution for Avocado. I am severely allergic to avocado.

    • Oh no ! I didn’t try something else so I am unsure. It would probably work with cream cheese? Let me know if you have any success with that Thanks, XOXO Carine.

    • No I am sorry it is what give the rich chocolate flavor and perfect texture to those cookies. Enjoy! XOXO Carine

    Can’t wait to try his recipe!
    Love that you give great detail on ingredients and substitutes! Very educational. I’m gluten and dairy free so I’m looking forward to checking out some of your other recipes as well.

  9. I will use the chi egg option, and 1/2 this recipe. This will help me with portion control, and I will be able to use up that 1/2 of avocado . ????

  10. 5 stars
    I made these yesterday and took them to our Bible study-they were a very big hit!! They could not believe they were made with avocados! Have several requests for your recipe! My hubby has given up flour and sugars (I used honey) so this was a great recipe. But yes, make sure your avocado is ripe-mine wasn’t quite ripe enough. I also used almond butter. Using a blender is a challenge-gave up and scraped it out=what I could get out, and stirred the rest in by hand.

    • Yeah!! I love when everyone enjoy my healthy cookies. Enjoy the blog recipes and thanks for trying some. XOXO Carine.

    • I didn’t freeze the cookies but many people reported success with freezing them in an airtight container so I am sure it will goes well. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  11. Hi! I love this recipe, I’m on a diet and working out so I could have one a day as a snack/treat, how long can I keep these in the fridge?

    • It depends, you can make 12 smaller cookie using the original recipe or yes double up for 12 large ones. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

  12. I tried the recipe. Everything tasted great up until I put in cocoa powder. Then they became bitter. I used the maple syrup as sweetener. Where did I go wrong. HELP!

    • You didn’t do anything wrong, you are great, it takes time to appreciate low sugar baking recipes.Unsweetened cocoa powder as a strongnd recently started with healthier baking recipes, they may taste to bitter to you, I suggest in the recipe to adjust the whole sweetness with stevia drops if required. Stevia drops increase sweeteness without changing the consistency of the batter it will hide the bitterness from cocoa. Another option, use sweetened cocoa powder, but it will be much more sweet and not low carb anymore. I hope this helps you ! Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine

    • It can be if you managed to turn the avocado into a smooth puree. It can be done with a blender. If you have avocado lumps the recipe won’t work. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  13. 5 stars
    This chocolate chip cookie looks awesome… I do not have any liquid sweetener at home can I use Erythritol? If it’s do able, how much should I put in?

    • I did not try the recipe with erythritol yet so I am not too sure how it will come out, I am worried that the cookies gets dryer as you will miss some moisture from the sugar free liquid sweetener. If you try, I would use the same quantity to keep the same level of sweetness. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  14. 5 stars
    Hi! I made these cookies and they are delicious! I Made with peanut butter, but I would like to feel less the taste of peanut, which nut butter would you recommend me for next time?

    • What a great idea! I love cashew butter for a neutral flavor or tahini (sunflower seed butter). Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • Full nutrition panel is always provided after the recipe card. One cookie has 9.9 g carbs including 4.6 g fibre so 5.3 g net carb per cookie. Enjoy the cookei recipe, XOXO Carine.

  15. 5 stars
    Wow! I couldn’t find sugar free chocolate chips so I made them without. These are awesome, I will definitely keep this recipe.

    • I am very happy that it works well without the choc chips too! I just love extra chocolate in my cookies but you are right this is optional. Thanks for sharing with all of us on the blog. Have a lovely time trying my low carb recipes. XOXO Carine.

  16. 5 stars
    I put the batter in a Ziploc bag and cut the tip off to make a piping bag. much easier then the spoon method and not so messy Love this recipe, made them last night for the ship that I work on the Captain is on a diet and loved them

    • That is a very clever way to shape those cookies. The batter is very sticky so I love the ziploc bag option. Not sure why I did not thought about it earlier lol Thanks for sharing and I am very happy that your captain love it too! ENjoy the blog recipes from your ship. XOXO Carine.

  17. Thanks for the great recipe! I can’t wait to try it. However, I have a question. Can I use Liquid Stevia as the sweetener instead of the Maple syrup?

    • Thanks ! The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of sugar free maple flavored syrup, if you want to use stevia instead you will have to balance the lack of liquid by something else or the cookies will be very dry. If you are on keto or low carb sugar free diet I really recommend you try sugar free liquid sweetener made of monk fruit as I do in this recipe (you can find some here). It is sugar free and add the texture you expect from those cookies. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  18. Do you have any suggestion for an alternative to nut butter.? We can’t use any nut like butters due to allergies.

  19. Do these need to be refrigerated because of the avocado? i never baked with avocado before lol. And how long do they “keep” for?????

    • Well, if you intend to store them more than 3 days – which I never do as we eat them all so fast – I would say yes, fridge is better. I like to store mine in the fridge anyway as they get fudgier too. Enjoy the blog recipe, XOXO Carine.

  20. Hey all,
    Could you do honey instead of maple syrup? Just started Keto. These cookies look amazing!!

    Thank you,

    -Katie <3

    • Hi Katie, of course you can but honey is not a keto sweetener, it contains lots of sugar so I highly recommend you get ome sugar free liquid sweetener made of Monk fruit to keep things sugar free and keto as well. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

  21. 5 stars
    Love these cookies. I didn’t add any extra sweetner. I did add pecans to the top and the sugar free chocolate chips. They made me so happy!

    • Yeah! Thanks for sharing this beautiful comment. I love the addition of pecan in those cookies, what a great idea. Enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

  22. 5 stars
    hi carine! thank you for sharing this recipe, it is wonderful! i made them as you suggested but i doubled the recipe and used maple syrup as the sweetner. they were a hit with the kids and adults alike! i cant wait to try different nut butters as i think it will change the flavour quite a bit. thanks again!

    • Hello! I am so happy to read that! Your so right, changing nut butter makes such a difference and it is a great idea to create different cookie flavors. I love cashew butter or even sunflower seed butter. So good ! Thanks again for this lovely comment, the time you take to add this here makes me very happy. Have a great time cooking with the blog. XOXO Carine.

  23. Can you freeze these once they’re formed then bake from frozen? I find this a really good way to apply portion control to an appetite that will eat a whole batch in one sitting 🙂

    • I did not try so I wouldn’t say yes. They store really well so you can make smaller cookies and store them in a cookie box for up to 1 week. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  24. 5 stars
    A massive thank you for sharing this recipe! We had an absolute blast baking them! It was my first time baking and it was my absolute pleasure to use your recipe! We will most definitely be following your journey! It was very inspirational!

    • Wow ! I am so flattered, first time baking and it is one of my recipe ! That is amazing!!!! Thanks so much for taking the time to try my recipe and share such lovely feedback on those cookies. Enjoy the blog, and don’t forget to tag me on instagram with your lovely creation! Would love to see that first baking experience and share with everyone ! Have a lovely time on the blog. XOXO Carine

    Hi… Great recipe. I thought I would share my a temp to ‘trick the recipe because I did not have liquid sweetener. I did read the comments and knew that plain adding dry sweetener would not work well as liquid was needed…. I I melted a 1/4 cut of better (Kerrygold) and mixed in 3 tablespoons of powered monk fruit…. Well the batter was ‘oily so it was not sticky at all. The butter did ‘seep’ out during cooking. but it did cook. I also added Macadamia nuts (chopped up) to the second half of the mix. I’m not sure how big these cookie are suppose to be but I was able to get 16 good size cookies out of your recipe. The verdict- good cookie but not very sweet (I had the liquid drops and forgot to add those). Going to order the proper sweetener for next time…..

    • Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I is great to know about alternative, even if they are not always successful. I really enjoy my sugar free maple syrup for those cookies and if you can find some I highly recommend you to try the recipe again. It will be perfect. The sweetness can easily be adjusted with the stevia drops, I personally love mine less sweet but my kids love the extra sweetness from the drops. Enjoy the sugar free recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  26. Just a tip for folks, if your nut butter is dried out and not the right texture, just add some oil and mix it up.

    • Clever tip, thanks for sharing that one ! But overall for this particular recipe I always love to use a fresh pot of nut butter to make them perfect or they could come out less fudgy. Enjoy the blog recipes and thanks so much for taking some time to share such a useful info here. Love it ! XOXO Carine.

  27. Could I use cacao instead of cocoa & if so, how much? These look sensational & I’ll be making them this weekend! Thanks ????

    • I am pretty sure it won’t cause any issue! I always buy cocoa powder in New Zealand, as it is what I can easily find in my local supermarket, but I am sure cacao powder would work. Enjoy the cookies and all recipes on my blog. XOXO Carine.

    • I never used banana in this recipe so I am not sure how it will goes. Maybe it will work as a replacement of the liquid sweetener but it will defintly change the texture. Enjoy the cookies, XOXO Carine.

  28. 5 stars
    I was intrigued & skeptical when this recipe can across my Facebook feed. Just made them, wow! I am happily suprised with these yummy gems! Thanks!

    • That such a beautiful comment to read in the morning! Thank you SO much for trying this cookie recipe and to report back such lovely words. I am happy you enjoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    • Agree, it won’t be ! That is why I am always using natural liquid syrup with a maple flavor. It is made of Monk fruit sugar, 100% no carb, few calorie, natural and delicious in this recipe if you are looking for low carb cookie with no sugar. You cna find some online on amazon here. Enjoy the recipe and thanks for reading the blog. XOXO Carine.

  29. My friend made these for me, but they came out very dry. I want to try on my own, what do you think she did wrong? I think it might have been the peanut butter.

    • Hi! I may be many things, did she measure the avocado in cups ? Some avocado may be smaller so less avocado create a dryer batter. Could also be the nut butter she used. You must use fresh, smooth runny nut butter. I love peanut butter and noticed that cashew butter are thicker and won’t make as fudgy cookies. Then, cooking time, overcooked cookies always come out dry. Finally sweetener, it works well with maple syrup, honey, brown rice syrup or even what I am using sugar free maple syrup made of Monk fruit but I won’t recommend artificial sugar free liquid sweetener. The additives in sugar free liquid syrup makes baking dry and taste weird. I hoe it will help you make delicious fudgy chocolate cookies. Thanks for trying my recipes and following the blog! XOXO Carine.

    • I used sugar free liquid syrup because I did not like the ‘crunch left by erythritol in those cookies plus it change the texture, came out dryer less fudgy too. But this would work but be different. Enjoy the sugar free treat on the blog! XOXO Carine.

  30. 5 stars
    They were AMAZING!! I made them last night during a commercial while watching my favorite show on TV. It was super easy and fudgy! I added a little extra stevia because I like mine sweeter but it was sweet enough the way you outlined it! Thank you so much. My friends love it too!!

    • I love when my recipes makes you happy ! So glad you find it tasty and easy too! A huge thanks for your comment, for testing my recipes and sharing with your friends. Enjoy the recipes around here, XOXO Carine.

  31. You may want to clarify that the liquid sweetner in step 3 is the maple syrup. My teenage daughter made these and was extremely disappointed that they tasted so bad. She assumed the liquid sweetner was the stevia.

    • There is NO stevia in the batter recipe. The batter recipe calls for sugar free maple syrup which is a liquid sweetener. The instructions says liquid sweetener because any kind of liquid sweetener can be used like pure maple syrup or agave or brown rice syrup if people are not sugar free. The stevia is well listed in the optional ingredients! Sorry if this confused her but I never add any issue before so assumed it was clear. Enoy the blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    Wow!! The cookies are baking now, but even the batter is delicious!! (and I don’t normally like batter) I used sunflower butter because of allergies in the family, but want to try these with peanut butter soon. I also used the maple syrup and chia egg options.

    I’m new to your site and can’t wait to try more recipes.
    Thank you!! 🙂

    • I am so happy you have found my website and enjoy the recipes around here! I also love to eat this batter 🙂 Specially when you use chia egg it is totally safe to eat this raw! I defintly have to try the sunflower butter option as many of you recommend this as a nut free option. Thanks so much for trying my recipes, leaving a kind comment! I am happy to have you here. XOXO Carine.

  33. Dumb question…would using Cacao Powder work as well? I just happen to have that on hand and wondered if you had ever substituted it for the cocoa. TIA

    • I am sure it will ! I am using unsweetened cocoa powder so make sure yours is unsweetened too or it will make the batter too sweet. Enjoy the cookie recipe. XOXO Carine.

  34. 5 stars
    Thank you SO MUCH for including a vegan/nut free option. My son is allergic to the top 8 food allergies. This makes life a little easier and sweeter! I can’t wait to try it. We also eat a low carb diet so yay! Whole family WIN!

    • My pleasure! I am having different diet in my house too – I eat sugar free/low carb as I had diabetes, my husband is vegan and won’t eat eggs so I love to provide options as I know the struggle it can be to bake something everyone love and can eat ! Enjoy the blog and recipes around here! XOXO Carine.

    Just finished baking a batch and I love them, except I think at least a dash of salt would have improved the flavor.

    • That is a lovely idea! I will add some salt to see how it taste next time 🙂 Thanks for your lovely feedback and idea. Enjoy the blog recipes, XOXO Carine.

    • The full nutrition panel appears after the recipe ox, scroll down further for the full macro information. But basically one large cookie contains 9.9 g carbs including 4.6 g of fiber so your real carb intake (net carb) will be 5.3 g for a large cookie as seen on this pictures. This calculation is made using sugar free flavored maple syrup! Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

    • I did not try myself so I won’t say yes, but many people reported great success with sunflower seed butter so I guess tahini would do the trick too! Not sure how it will taste with avocado tho. Let me know if you give this a go. XOXO Carine.

    • I would not replace the maple syrup by banana, it will change the texture a lot and won’t bake the same. You can use sugar free maple syrup as I am using for a low sugar cookie or brown rice syrup for a low GI syrup. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

  36. I wonder if anyone has tried using an aquafaba egg in this? I don’t have chia seeds but I really want to try these!

    • Hello! I always make them with chia egg or flax egg for my vegan husband but I never tried aquafaba egg tho. If anyone try I am happy to hear the feedback too 🙂 I hope someone will give us some tips! Enjoy the recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

  37. Would these be weird with wow (soy) or sun butter? My kids can’t do nuts but I’m hesitant to try soy or sunflower butters in a cookie.

    • Some people report great success using sunflower butter so I am sure it will be tasty too ! I hope your kids enjoy those cookies too ! XOXO Carine.

    Thank you for this awesome recipe. I did a lot of paleo treats a few years back but now mainly just buy supermarket free-from products full of sugar and junk. We are slowly getting back into this so I’ve done a little bit of improvisation to your recipe to get the kids eating it. I added 1 tablespoon of sugar and replaced half.of the nut butter with normal butter (this is due to cost and my youngest can only have almond butter and reacts to peanut butter).. I also used normal dark chocolate chips. This one definitely worked as my youngest gobbled the cookies up (going yumm.. umm.. yum the whole time) and my fussy 10 year old who has been refusing anything healthy the last few months (even paleo cakes) wolfed his down. When I told him it’s a healthy-ish cookie, he was like “what!? Really?”. So, awesome recipe and well done. Thanks.

    • Thanks so much for this lovely message, I am so happy that your 10 year old son enjoy those cookies! It is always difficult to make kids eat healthier food I know well the challenge – mine are 5 years old and 18 months ! I hope you find more healthy recipe for your paleo family on my blog. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

    • I did not try the recipe with an avocado substitute myself but if you read the other comment some people add success with banana or cream cheese! So if you can eat some banana – I mean if you are not allergic or on low carb diet – it might be something to try either cream cheese. Let me know how it goes! XOXO Carine.

    The 20 year old boy came into the kitchen and went nuts over the smell and the sight of them.
    Boy: WHAT are these??? They look incredible!
    Mom: I don’t think you’ll like them.
    Boy: Are you KIDDING me?
    Mom: I really don’t think you’ll like them.
    Boy: You need a taste tester…
    Mom: You can trrryyyy them but they may not be your thing.
    Boy: Really? There is half of one…I’m tasting.
    …..No, these are good. These are really good.
    Mom: They are made with avocado.
    Boy: ….what?….wait
    Mom: (Showed him the recipe)
    Boy: Wait…how…that’s cool. May have to have another..
    Mom: NOT til after dinner!!!

    This is an outstanding recipe!! I’ve made them twice now and even my sweets snob of a hubby loved them. Seriously, if it’s not loaded with sugar and butter he turns his nose up. I sent some to work with him to share and he didn’t…he said they were too good to share! Lol I used honey to sweeten and half of a ripe mashed banana in place of the egg and they were delicious, just a hint of banana flavor with that fudgey rich chocolate! Thanks so much for this recipe that is my new go to for our sweet toothed family!

    • I love that story! thanks so much for sharing it with me 🙂 It makes me so happy to know your husband find a healthy sweet treat to bring to the office. I love the twist you give to the recipe too! So creative !!! Unfortunately I can’t have banana or honey but I am sure many reader will try your recipe option. Thanks SO much for trying my recipes and reading the blog. I hope you find more delicious recipes for you and hubby on my little place! Have a lovely day. XOXO Carine.

    I just tried these cookies, and they turned out great! Very rich,so next time will make just little smaller, I think they will be just as satisfying. I used coconut nectar as the sweetener.

    • Thanks SO much for this lovely feedback. I agree, I love making large cookies but those are so satisfying that we can feel full eating smaller portion! Thank you so much for sharing your sweetener option too, I am sure many readers will love to know that they can make them with coconut nectar too! Enjoy the blog recipes XOXO Carine.

    • YES! All the ingredients are keto approved – make sure you are using sugar free maple flavored syrup from monk fruit of course!

      • Hi there :)! So excited to try these! Any chance I can pulverize erythritol sugar and use that? Don’t have any of the sugar free syrup. Thanks!

        • It worth a try and it should work well too. Not sure about the texture though as the liquid syrup add some moisture that you will miss with the powdered erythritol. I did not try yet so unsure about the result but great sugar free idea! Let me know if you give this a go. Enjoy the recipe, XOXO Carine.

  42. My son hasn’t a nut allergy so we cannot use any nut butters. What would you recommend as a substitute?

    • I would recommend a seed butter like sunflower seed butter. Enjoy the cookies with your son and the recipes on the blog. I have got plenty of nut free recipes too that he may like ! XOXO Carine.
