My teenager recently became vegan. While the rest of our home remains omnivores (with a love for meat), I still make sure she’s able to enjoy dessert and special treats as much as possible. My husband called me the other night while I was at a meeting at the kids’ school and asked what, if anything, was for dessert? I had pudding ready to go for the boys, but was stumped at what to offer our little vegan. I joked with my husband, “Name a dessert without dairy? I dare you!”. It is tougher than you think! With a bit of playing around, I came up with this recipe using substitutes for the dairy, sugar and eggs in most cookie recipes.
What You Will Need:
1 avocado, peeled and mashed well
1/2- 1 cup agave nectar (or honey) depending on taste and how sweet you want these
1 tsp baking soda mixed with 1 tbsp of white vinegar (this is an egg substitute)
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup (or MORE!) vegan chocolate chips
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix mashed avocado, agave nectar (these won’t be very sweet unless you add the full cup and even then they are still semi-sweet) and egg substitute (1 tsp baking soda and 1 tbsp vinegar).
Add cocoa powder and baking soda.
Lastly, add those chocolate chips.
Spoon dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes.
