My kids will one by one get sick and I’m the one wiping their noses, doling out medicine, rubbing Vick’s on their chest, getting up with them in the night, etc etc.

And then as soon as they’re all better, guess who gets it?!

Life has moved on by then and I’m stuck driving to baseball practices, piano lessons, scouts, and so on and so forth. Meanwhile I’m on my death bed with the world’s worst cold and nobody is taking care of me!

So yes, mom’s should never get sick because we never get a day off!

This has been one of the worst colds I’ve EVER had. Five days later and I’m finally feeling a little better but still congested. Okay, END of rant!

Cookies. Let’s talk avocado. Cookies and avocado? Weird.

But good weird. It’s one of those things that you’re like “who came up with this?” and then you make them and realize that it’s genius and you should have been doing it all along!

You can’t taste the avocado at all. My boys were downing these cookies. You should have seen the look on their faces when I told them that there was avocado in them. Pretty funny stuff! Regardless, these cookies did not last long, as cookies usually don’t at my house full of boys.

They’re moist, rich, chocolatey and overall a bit healthier than the average chocolate cookie. It makes you wonder what other crazy combos have you missed out on? Maybe tomato cookies? ;)

    Jen, these look incredible! I’m all about avocado in cookies, especially if they are chocolate! I hear ya on the mom’s being sick thing. I had the same awful cold last week. It’s just not fair that we don’t get a nap when we’re not feeling well, yet when they’re sick, they get to lay around all day while we serve them. Such is life I guess. I hope you feel better soon!

    Being sick as a mom should totally not be allowed, ugh. Glad you’re on the upswing! These cookies look wonderful – I tried avocado in regular chocolate chip cookies once and they tasted great but the weird green tinge totally threw off my kids and they weren’t fans…everything is better with double chocolate :)

    I haven’t tried anything like this yet, but I bet you could also use avocado in your skinny brownies too.

    You’re amazing!! I would have never thought to add avocado to chocolate chip cookies. All I know is that I’m excited to have a healthy chocolate recipe! Yay!!

    The one thing that’s held me back from baking with avocado (other than I love to eat avocados, and never HAVE extra), is the fact that avocados notoriously don’t “keep”. They go funky pretty fast, right? How do these cookies hold up – days, weeks?

      Hi Charlotte! These cookies were gone pretty quick but I can see what you mean about the avocado. They will last probably two days on your countertop or you can throw them in the freezer or fridge and do a quick 15-20 sec microwave heat up to make them warm again. They’re surprisingly pretty good! My boys didn’t know they had avocado in them until after they had eaten most of them. Thanks for the comment. I hope this helps!

    Buying avocados today! Must try these. Made chocolate pudding last week using avocado. So creamy, completely decadent! And NOONE guessed what the ‘secret’ ingredient was.

    I’m just getting over the cold that my kids so generously shared with me, so I totally relate! I’ve never seen avocados mixed into cookies, but because love chocolate and avocados, this is something I have to try! Thanks for sharing! :)

    Oh no! I hope you are feeling better! Mommies never get the day off … and it’s really tough when we don’t feel well. Sometimes I feel like my kids just bring the germs to me. They don’t ever get sick – they just share germs with me!
    Avocado cookies?!? Gotta admit, I was a little skeptical until I read the whole post and looked at all the amazing pictures! And I’m totally convinced now! This could be the perfect use for my two avocados that are ready to be used up! Awesome recipe, Jen! :)

    Looks yummy. Would love to try it but wanted to know if we can substitute vegetable oil or coconu oil, and if so, do we use the same quantities? Thank you

      Yes, you can definitely sub vegetable or canola oil for the coconut oil. You can use the same quantity as the coconut oil. I hope you like them! Thanks for the comment!

    Hey Jen,

    These look and sound amazing. Just had a quick question…is it possible to use all regular flour or do we have to use flour and white whole wheat?

      Hi Linsey! You can definitely use all regular all-purpose flour!! I was just trying to add in a little more fiber, lol! I hope you like the cookies!
