After I saw how much you guys love my avocado brownies and avocado pudding, I knew I had to make another avocado dessert. The natural next step? Cookies!

Chocolate Walnut Avocado Brownie Cookies

After I made these cookies and tasted their delicious fudgey texture, I knew these had to be more of a brownie-cookie slash brookie situation? They’re so rich and chocolatey, I couldn’t help but add some walnuts in their to really hit the brownie home run, you know?

Super simple, you throw everything in your food processor, fold in some chunky chips and nuts and you are GOOD.

Place the flax meal and into the measuring cup with water, or in a small bowl with the water. Set aside for 5 minutes. This will make a “flax egg.”

After the five minutes, add the flax egg, avocado, peanut butter, agave nectar, and vanilla in your food processor. Process for about 1 minute until completely creamed together.

Add the cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking soda to the food processor and process again until combined. 

Fold in the chocolate chips (or chunks) and chopped walnuts, saving some to sprinkle on top. 

Use an ice cream scooper to scoop 6 – 10 mounds onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. These don’t expand too much so keeping them about 1 – 2 inches apart is perfect. Wet a spoon to flatten out the mounds a bit.

This dough are super sticky so wetting the back of the spoon, or your fingers, before you flatten them is super helpful. 

Add some chopped walnuts and additional chocolate on top and slightly press them into the top. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Once the outside is set, remove them from the oven and allow to sit on the baking sheet for five minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
