(Avocado Coconut) Cowboy Cookies

71 comments

I know what you’re thinking… Avocado? Cowboy? What on Earth?

You know what I’m thinking… Ah, the weirder the better. :)

And I can assure you and me both that these cookies rock. They’re light, fluffy, gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free, lowish carb, and yummy. They are cookies, of course they are yummy. I wouldn’t make a cookie that wasn’t… or at least I wouldn’t post it, as sometimes even Lori’s produce sub-par baked goods.

But not these! These are good. And I have been enjoying them as a mid-morning snack just about every day. Guilt-free, mind you. Yup, they have chocolate chips in them, but that just adds to the complexity of my snacking. 😉

Don’t you just love how I make up random babble??

Why I used these ingredients:

Avocado: Avocado was used in replace of added oils or fat. The natural, healthy fat in the avocados acts to moisten the cookie and give it a buttery texture and taste.

Banana: Bananas act as a binder, helping the batter stick together. They keep the cookie nice and moist, and give them a slightly sweeter taste without adding tons of sugar.

Coconut: Healthy fats, again! And a bit of a crunch factor. If coconut doesn’t float your boat, feel free to leave these out, if you wish.

Sea salt: Delish! Don’t forget to add salt to your baked goods. Salt, sea salt in particular, adds minerals and enhances the flavor of foods. Salt and make or break a recipe or dish. Don’t be afraid to use salt- if you’re not eating processed foods, you’re not going to consume too much sodium.

Apple cider vinegar: This helps the cookies become fluffy when baking gluten-free baked goods. Don’t ask me why…

Honey: Because it’s yummy, adds complexity, and isn’t process, white sugar. You may sub with any sweetener you’d like.

Cowboy: Because I created these cookies based off of a recipe for Cowboy Cookies from Gluten Free By Nature. She has some crazy-great recipes.

 

 Yummy. :)
