Whole Wheat Avocado CC Cookies

Don't look at me like that. These things are delicious, and totally the right texture, plus the whole wheat flour disguises the slight green tinge they get from the gloriously luscious avocado.

I made these for a party, a dress opening party! I met this wonderful girl Tanvi at a craft fair earlier this year and low and behold it turns out her day job is working in the same department as John! Such a small world. Well I fell in love with her dresses (all hand made) and bought one up quick.

THEN I find out she's going to be selling them in a local shop here in Rochester called Thread. AND she was having an opening for her line!! A quick convo later and we had it set up that I'd bring some goodies to the opening (and get to leave some ::steph chows:: cards behind) These bad boys got eaten up so fast! LOVE! I was so excited everyone liked them.

(check out my mad modeling skills! *dork* I always wanted to be a model... unfortunately my 5'4" frame and large rump had other plans)

Oh right we're talking about cookies here... full disclosure the recipe below is vegan, my cookies pictured are not since I used real butter, and semi sweet chocolate chips since that's what I had on hand. Either way you make them, delicious!

Chewy & Gooey Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe by Sweet Road

1 3/4 c flour (I used whole wheat and they came out great!)
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt (I used less salt)
1/4 c Earth Balance
1/4 - 1/3 c mashed avocado (no chunks)
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 c sugar
1 tbsp flax seed mixed with 2 tbsp water
2 tsp vanilla
LOTS of roughly chopped dark chocolate (read the ingredients to determine whether it is vegan or not)

-Combine the first 4 ingredients in a bowl
-In a separate bowl combine the Earth Balance and avocado to make a smooth buttery mixture, then add the sugars, flax seed mixture, and vanilla to combine until the ingredients are well incorporated
-Add the dry ingredients and mix well
-Add the chocolate chips and mix, then refrigerate the cookie dough overnight

Preheat the oven to 350ยบ F

-Scoop the cookie dough and place evenly on a baking sheet, flattening them slightly with your hand
-Bake for 10-15 minutes (more or less) depending on your desired consistency - if you bake them too long, they only stay chewy for a bit before becoming crunchy
