Ingredients
  

  • 300 grams oat flour (3 US cups)
  • 1 avocado medium size, ripe
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 1 egg large, 2 if small
  • 1 tbsp yogurt natural, unflavoured
  • 2 tbsp sweetener of choice make sure to reduce the amount of sweetener if you are using an intense sweetener like stevia
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • nuts of choice (handful) chopped

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • In a food processor, scoop off one avocado in it, add cocoa powder, yogurt, sweetener, and egg
  • Process the ingredients until smooth and creamy
  • Add oat flour and baking powder, I added a combination oat flour and instant oat for a little bit of texture.
  • Process until smooth and thick, add chopped nuts of your choice, and toss with the cookie batter. You can also add raisins or dried cranberries if you want to
  • Bring a baking sheet and cover with parchment paper. Scoop the batter using a medium sized ice cream scoop or a full tablespoon.
  • Place separately on the baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until it's firm on the outside, slightly cracked, and moist on the inside.
  • Let the cookies cool before serving.

Notes

  • If you are using honey or maple syrup as a sweetener, add two extra tablespoons of oat flour.
  • For a high protein option, you can use one quarter (of the amount of oat flour) of chocolate protein powder.
  • For a vegan option, use chia seeds or flaxseeds egg instead of the egg and coconut yogurt instead of dairy.
