These avocado cookies are surprisingly amazing. I made this recipe up with my fingers crossed hoping that it would be as yummy as I imagined it to be.
I’ve been trying to think of cookie combinations I could make with my Nutella balls. I got a little out of hand while making them for another recipe and had a ton leftover.
Staring over at the counter, I noticed the avocados. I was going back and forth on whether I should be crazy enough to stick some in my cookies.
As insane as it sounded, I kept thinking about how good Nutella and avocado was on toast, so why wouldn’t that combo in a cookie be just as delicious?
I grabbed the ingredients, my mixer, and hoped for the best. I got mixing and quickly realized how distasteful the color was.
To be honest, overlooking the color was tough. When I tried the dough I was still a little skeptical because the taste wasn’t exactly where I wanted it to be.
I tried reminding myself that it was avocado I put in there. I kept going though because I knew the Nutella and the added sugar would probably change my mind.
Oh boy, was I right? It was the perfect combination. It wasn’t super sweet which means I’d be able to enjoy more than one in a sitting.

- Scoop the cookie dough and flatten like a pancake. Roughly 2×2 inches. Place a frozen Nutella ball on top and fold the dough up to wrap around the frozen ball of Nutella. Make sure it's completely sealed by rolling it into a ball between your two palms. Add more cookie dough if needed to fully cover frozen ball. (This mixture is sticky so I sprayed my fingers with cookie spray to keep it from sticking).

- Bake until the cookies are golden, 12-15 minutes. Eat up and Enjoy!
