Fatty Dark Chocolate Avocado Fudge Cookies that are dairy-free, grain-free and gluten-free!
Abnormally excited about these fudge cookies right now.
I debated whether or not to put avocado in the name here because I don’t want it to turn anyone away from making them. But to be honest, it 100% sounds soooo off to have avocado and cookies in the same title.
You gotta trust me on this guys…
These Chocolate Avocado Fudge Cookies surpassed any sort of expectation I had for making a dessert with avocado.
I should have known it would be epic though after my smoothie pudding or truffles.
But these cookies are SOOO fudgy and taste 100x more rich than they actually are. They are so simple and easy to make and they are filled with healthy fats and not much sugar so I’m not spiking my blood sugar levels like crazy.
Plus these Fatty Dark Chocolate Avocado Fudge Cookies even have HEMP HEARTS in them! In case you are like “what the beep is a hemp heart?”, I gotchu covered.
Why do I put hemp hearts in my cookies?!
Hemp hearts are these magical little seeds that are filled with plant-based protein, omega 3 and omega 6 and they are ready to eat as is. I use Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts and they are the largest manufacturer to grow, make and sell their own line of hemp foods. They are so easy to sprinkle on salads, cereals, yogurt, smoothies, anything! Plus I am getting more protein compared to when I use flax or chia seeds.

Love the healthy fats from the hemp and avo and all the protein in these- they look SO fudgy 🙂 Pinning!
Brynn @ My Sweet Potato Life
These look so good! I love that they barely have any flour – that makes it much more appealing to me because almond flour is so expensive! Thank you for the awesome recipe; you’re such an inspiration!
awww thanks babe!
Can’t wait to try these! What brand of chocolate chips do you use?
thank you! everything should be linked on my shop page!
Can you sub or omit the hemp hearts?
i haven’t tested without! but feel free to sub another seed like chia or flax
Avocado toast is great and all, but I think cookies may become my new favorite way to eat avocados 😉 . Love the melty chocolate chunks too!
Can you freeze these? Or freeze the dough?
since it’s avocado i’m not sure they will stay well but definitely let me know if you try!
I have made other avocado cookies a froze them and they tasted great.
