Char’s No Guilt Chocolate Chip Cookies

img_20161011_125609I am sure there are plenty of healthy cookie recipes out there. And over the years there have been many ideas thrown around on how to make delicious desserts that are healthy and guilt free. And I have to say we are getting better and better at it. Yes, I have plenty of sweet recipes on my blog that are NOT guilt free and I believe we should indulge in those on occasion. Life’s too short! But why not find good recipes that make us feel better about those moments we crave sweets and just HAVE to have them! I created this recipe and was pleasantly surprised at how good they turned out. These are great for kids because I doubt they could tell the difference. Adults probably can.. but all my taste testers said they were very good…too good to be no guilt. I have eliminated half the fat, most of the sugar and there is very little sodium. And with the use of good dark chocolate it makes these a smart choice for a sweet treat!  So, give them a try and see what you think 🙂

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper

You will need:

  • 2- 1/4 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 stick unsalted real butter (1/2 c) softened
  • 1/2 c mashed avocado
  • 1/4 c + 2 TBS Truvia Baking Blend Sugar
  • 1/4 c + 2 TBS Truvia Brown Sugar Blend
  • 1-1/2 tsp real vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 c egg substitute
  • 1- 10 oz pkg Nestle Dark Chocolate Morsels (if you like more chocolate add another 1/4 to 1/2 cup. I Did!!)
  • powdered sugarimg_20161009_134209303_hdr

In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, and salt and set aside. In a large bowl beat butter, avocado, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy (ignore the green color it will go away eventually!) Add egg and beat well. Repeat with egg substitute. Gradually beat in dry ingredients until blended. Fold in morsels. You can add nuts if you like or even raisins or oatmeal. Chill for 5 minutes

Scoop desired amount (approx. TBS) onto cookie sheet about 2 inches apart

Bake 10-14 minutes (ovens vary) until slightly golden but do not overbake

Remove from oven let cookies sit on cookie sheet for a few minutes

Transfer cookies to cooling rack or onto paper towels laid out on counter

Let cool 5-10 minutes

Sift powdered sugar over them before serving

They are delicious cold or warm 🙂

Makes about 4 dozen
