Fudge Cookies (Secret Ingredient)
These cookies are fudgy, rich, and so easy to make.
They are high in protein and healthy fats, while low in carbohydrates. Sounds like a win win win to me. Only 70 calories per cookie and 3 Net Carbs.
They seriously taste like rich brownies, but don’t spike your blood sugar!
Avocado Fudge Cookies
Makes 8 Cookies
1/3 cup stevia (mine measures cup for cup with sugar)
1 tbsp Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
1 scoop Optimum Whey Extreme Milk Chocolate Protein Powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 or two grinds of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
1/2 Trader Joes Dark Chocolate Bar chopped coarsely (Any dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips will work) Add these in last- you don’t want to process them- just mix them into the batter at the end)
Mix the stevia, cocoa powder, protein powder, baking powder and sea salt in a bowl.
Put the avocado, egg, and dry ingredients (without the chocolate chips/chocolate bar) in a food processor and process well. Add in your chocolate chips or chopped up chocolate bar and fold into the mixture. Now scoop with a teaspoon onto parchment paper. These will rise slightly so space them accordingly. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Watch them closely, they will smell like brownies when they are done. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan for 5 minutes, then move to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in the refrigerator.
