Oatmeal Cookies with a Surprise Inside

I know you all might be thinking what is the big surprise inside these cookies as they look quite like a normal cookies..But they have a little surprise and that is avocado..yup you heard it right these cookies have avocado inside..Basically the avocado is used as a partial replacement of butter in this cookie.

When i came across this recipe, first of all i was little hesitant to try it but after trying it i must say its worth a try...all of my cookies were gone within 4 days..


Butter(Softened):- 1/2 cup
Avocado (peeled & mashed):- 1/2 cup
Light brown sugar (packed):- 1/2 cup
Sugar:- 1/2 cup
Egg:- 1
Vanilla:- 1tsp
Plain Flour (or whole wheat pastry flour):- 1 cup
Baking soda:- 1tsp
Salt:-1/2 tsp
Rolled oats:- 2cups
Shredded or Dessicated coconut:- 1/2 cup
Chocolate chips or chopped chocolate:- 1/2 cup
Chopped Walnuts:- 1/2 cup


1) Preheat the oven at 375 degree F
2) Beat the butter until smooth, add the sugars and beat until light & fluffy.
3) Gently beat in the avocado until well blended.
4)Add egg & vanilla extract & mix well.
5) Sift the flour , salt & baking soda in the butter mixture & mix well.
6) Stir in oats & coconut.
7) Fold through the chocolate chips & walnuts
8) Drop into tablespoonful sized balls onto a baking sheet.
9) Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly golden & crispy.

Makes 30 cookies

Note:-These taste even better if you keep the dough in the fridge for a day before baking and the dough freezes well too- which is a good thing because these are best eaten fresh out of the oven.
