Triplechocofudge Avocado Cookies {Gluten Free}

Posted on

These are the best cookies in the entire world.

Just look at that molten chocolate oozing all over the place…

I know lots of you are gluten-free little beavers. Some because of allergies, some because of health problems and others just because it’s not terribly good for you.

Whatever the reason, it really can suck.

It seems that everything delicious is packed full of the stuff. Well these monstrous cookies are here to challenge that idea.

They don’t have any flour or oats, they don’t even have any butter. The magical secret ingredient is avocado…

But you won’t taste it.

Rather than a traditional crumbly biscuit type cookie, these are a sort of fudge-brownie type cookie.

They are hands-down my new favourite treat. Yes… *pause for effect*… I like them even more than Slutty Brownies.

I’m using cup measurements because it’s quicker & easier than weighing all the ingredients. The recipe is a hybrid of Katy’s & my own, though it was totally her idea.

Right, to make a batch of 6 you’ll need:

1 smallish *ripe* avocado (when it’s mashed you want a generous 1/2 cup)

1 large free-range egg

1tsp baking soda

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

1/3 cup white sugar (caster sugar)

1/3 cup cocoa powder

2 handfuls of roughly chopped chocolate (I used milk and white, but you can use any kind you fancy)

Pre-heat your oven to 180C/350F. Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper and put to one side.

Mash your avocado and throw it into your mixer with all the other ingredients except for the chocolate chunks.

Blend with the machine, or go old school with a bowl & wooden spoon. Either way you want to be left with a nice, shiny batter.

Stir in your chocolate chunks

and scoop the mixture onto your baking tray. We want these to be big, generous, monstrous cookies! So try and make six.

They don’t spread very much so don’t stress about leaving too much of a gap.

Check them at 15mins, give them a tap and they should have a nice firm, shiny coating. If they wobble around or are still sticky, give them a couple more mins and try again. Even in the most delicate of ovens they shouldn’t need more than 18mins.

Leave them to cool on the tray, but they’re best eaten warm.

By the time you’ve made a pot of tea they should be cool enough, so get stuck in!

Apparently these little monsters can be stored in an airtight container for a couple of days, but every batch I’ve made so far have been devoured before they’ve even cooled… so I’m afraid I wouldn’t know.

Definitely best warm from the oven anyway.

Go on, lick the screen. No-one’s looking…

Have you seen these yet?

    OMG- Amazing! DO you think you could replace the sugar with Agave or honey?
    Giving these a go V Soon! Nom Nom xxx

    • Rosie

      I think it might make the mixture a bit wet, might work with Truvia though! x

      • Nicola Barrett

        Thanks Rosie- I’ll give it a go & let you know how it turns out… I’m sure it will get eaten either way! x

    Drrooooling over this in my lecture. Very tempted to sneak out and go home via the shops to make em! Even though being gluten free can be bleak, it definitely make you more creative in the kitchen, avocados – who would have thought! If ya fancy check out my gluten and dairy free choc/fudge cake Ix

  • CrazyLovelyMe

    Yay! I just had to start eating gluten free (if I don’t, I feel as though someone’s attacking my joints with sledgehammers – so it’s easier to skip gluten) and it’s been a pain trying to find some easy and sweet stuff that doesn’t require three or four different kinds of expensive non-gluten flours. Can’t wait to make these!

  • intotheblonde

    OMG! These look devillishly delicious & of course the avacado is so good for you too. The last line also made me LOL!!!!!

    Happy Friday Rosie xoxo

  • Anon

    Where does the fudge come into it?

    • Captain Obvious

      It refers to the texture of the cookies. They’re fudgey rather than crumbly as she explained in the post.

  • Georgina

    I never fail to be amazed by the abilities of avocado, such an amazing ingredient. These look delicious, and I think they will become our favourite too! xx

    P.S. The last line may have just made me snort with laughter in the butchers, Ta! xx

  • Annabel

    I just made these and OMFG they’re so amazing!!! New favourite recipe. Thanks Rosie xxxxx

    Avocado in cookies??? Amazing. And they look so delicious.

  • Caroline L.

    Omg no, these are something else. I want to taste them right now!

  • LifeofLeslieAnn

    Hi Rose! You never cease to amaze!! Any ideas on a substitute for avocado? Husband has a severe allergy :/

  • Noelle DeMarco

    Yummy cookies, but my favorite part is the doggy photo bomb! Love it.

  • Katie

    I was so tempted to lick the screen before you even said anything. I HATE avocado with a passion, but will be trying these out this weekend if you can pinky promise I won’t be able to taste it?

    Katie <3

  • Katy

    Glad you liked my recipe! I bet these cookies taste awesome with white chocolate (a double chocolate cookie is my one white-chocolate exception) and I love the photos as well. Have a great weekend :)

  • Marisha Bailey

    These sound AMAZING! I think i’ll make them this weekend!


  • The Style Box

  • Michelle

    oh my good lord!! these are happening to my kitchen.. :)

  • Lauren @BonVoyageLauren

    Thanks, Rosie! I’ll be making this for my friends birthday coming up. She has a gluten allergy and will absolutely love these :)

  • Jennifer

    WOW! These look amazing!! And avocado… that means they’re a fruit, right? πŸ˜‰

  • Emily
  • Cynthia

    Can you taste the avocado? I like the healthy alternative to regular cookies but, not the taste of avocado.

  • CrackBerryCream

    Never thought of having avocado in a chocolate cookie… I might need to try these, especially since I have a pack of chocolate chips left…

  • Laura

    Fudgy cookies are the best type of cookie. I’m was going to say I was sceptical about the avocado, but then beetroot works so well in brownies, so I’m betting this is indeed amazing. Another one to try this weekend. Thanks Rose x

  • saradujour

    Rose, you NEED to compile some of your recipe posts into a cookbook – it’d sell like hot cakes! Your photos are stunning and everything looks so good.

    Loved your recent Halloween costume. I went as Belle! You can see some photos here, if you’d like:



  • Alice Parr

    What a minute.. surely one of these counts towards your 5 a day?!?! That’s it I’m off to buy some avocados..

  • Nicte Kono

    i love avocado, and if i can use it for replace the butter i am so fall in love!

  • Megan Gosling

    These look so beaut! And really, they’re very healthy so i think they’ll fit perfectly into the “no chocolate until Christmas” plan….haha nice one Rosie πŸ˜€ x

  • AurΓ¨

    Hello,Ciao Rosie…che BontΓ …these cookies are Works of Art…and you’re a great Artist! πŸ˜‰

  • Hannah

    I made these, they were amazing! Sadly my batter was very runny (a bit more like brownies) and they spread all over. I’m thinking that they make have been mixed too much.

  • CrackBerryCream

    I just tried them, but they ended up tasting too much like egg and avocado. However, I used chocolate flakes instead of cocoa powder…

  • Hannah

    These look incredible! And it just so happens that I have a leftover avocado after making your avocado spaghetti the other night – perfect!

  • Charlie

    I made these today! Seriously, just AMAZING! Best cookies ever – you would never know they were made with avocado! I substituted the white sugar for Truvia and they worked perfectly! Thanks so much Rosie! Xx

  • Honey What’s Cooking

    These look so amazing! Love that there is no butter, I’ve seen avocado brownies. All healthy ingredients for the most part, I”ll try them with dark chocolate. Thanks!!!

  • chantelle

  • Flo

    These look incredible! By brown and white sugar could please specify what sort? Is it caster sugar and light brown soft sugar? I don’t want to get it wrong! x

  • Isabel

    avocado and cookies are two words I never expected to hear next to each other but they look really delicious!

  • Iseabal Hutcheson

    OH MY GOD!! I am definitely making these beauties tomorrow!

  • Eloise – Jazzlipsandtulips

    Oh my good freeking lord, i just had a foodgasm.. Veg in sweet treats is the absolute best!


  • Stephanie Sadler

    I wonder if anyone actually did lick the screen…? These look amazing, but I’m sadly allergic to avocado. Boo.

  • Natalie

    Try it and add peanut butter! Makes it sound even weirder but Oh. My. God. So good.

  • Sharon Chang

    I just made these. They spread out and never hardened =( not sure what I did wrong. But when with all that… Still taste pretty good… Nothing like avocado!

  • Kate Carlson

    I tried to make these cookies the other night and I followed Rose’s instructions, but my cookies turned out flat like a traditional cookie. Only I couldn’t scoop them up from the wax paper so I had to throw them out. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can do to make them correctly, please?



  • Maddy

    THESE LOOK AMAZING. Might have to try making them this weekend…!

  • Kelli Flournoy

    This is one for the file box! Can’t wait to try these~~~ with a few walnuts, maybe a sprinkle of coconut…. mmmmm….

  • heydreahey

    Wow! My mouth is watering! MUST. TRY. ASAP!

  • Sophie

    I made these the other night and they are delicious!.. but even better the next day popped in the microwave and heated for 20 secs turns it into a chocolate fondant type creation. Decadent. Thanks Rosie!

  • Little London Girl

    Rosie, made these tonight and thought they wouldn’t be great but they are delicious! I literally love them, who would have thought that you can make brownies with avocados!! Thanks for the recipe!! Xx

  • Hayley Willetts

    I made these tonight too!! They tasted AMAZING but…they all flattened out whilst cooking and joined together to make one huge flat cookie. Still bloody beautiful though and will be making them again. I love that you use avocado instead of butter so it makes them slightly less guilty!!


  • Emma Meriano

    The recipe was so good! I made them for my friends birthday and she loved them! :)

  • Bonnie

    Can you use anything besides cocoa powder? I have never liked chocolate. I do sometimes eat white chocolate. (I know it’s not the same)

  • Melonnie Fuller Kelly

    these are SO good!!! I couldn’t stop eating them! Seriously.

  • Claire Bosselut

    Made them last night, HEAVEN !

  • Dizar Zabalegui Angel

    These are aaa-mazing! Although is there any reason my mixture is so super runny!? I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong. Delicious nonetheless of course! Thank you!

  • Stephanie The Magpie

    I made these last night, I used half dark and half milk chocolate and replaced the 1/3 white sugar with a mixture of ground almonds/flax seed/coconut flour. They came out AMAZING! Thanks so much for the recipe. I did mine by hand (blitzed the avo though), completely didn’t read the bit about leaving the chocolate out and mixed it all up in my bowl together no problems. Fool Proof!


    thanks for the recipe but mine turned out flat and i think too soft.. i wonder where did i go wrong?

  • Clara Mallinckrodt

    I’ve just stumbled across these and they look divinnneeee! I will be making hundreds to fuel me through the winter, thank you Rosie you culinary genius! xx

  • Kenneth Clarke

    Tip: If you know someone who’s got issues with high cholesterol, you can replace the 1 large egg w a 1/4 cup applesauce. The result is the same and the cookie will be nice and moist. (No, the cookie won’t taste like apples.)

  • Theodora

    Hello :) I have made these quite a few times and they come out great !! I believe they are THE best chocolate chip cookies!! I am now wondering whether I could bake them in a brownie pan and still taste the same. What do you think?

  • Laura Marie

    This looks amazing!! NOM! Great shots! Looks so delicious!
