There are many ways to replace butter in vegan cookies. Today, we'll show you how to do it using avocados! As usual, we want our recipes to be accessible to everyone. Therefore, our vegan avocado cookies are also sugar-free and gluten-free.
Avocados are kings in vegan and keto diets, due to their high level of wholesome omega-3 fats and low carbs. Contrary to the unhealthy saturated fats from butter, avocado fats are excellent for your heart. At the same time, this fatty fruit can be a binder just as powerful as regular butter. Moreover, it gives the cookies a light green tone that makes them stand out. You can accentuate this colour further by using matcha powder, for extra cool-points.
Like we always say: vegan is good. But healthy vegan is better. That's why we replaced all sugars in the recipe with zero-carb sweetener erythritol. This makes the recipe perfect for people on a low sugar diet, weight-loss diet, or even folks with diabetes.
The low amount of sugars coupled with high healthy fats from avocado makes this recipe a great candidate for the keto diet as well. All you have to do is to replace oat flour with almond, or coconut flour and you'll have keto and vegan avocado cookies!
Finally, we always think of our dear readers with gluten intolerance. That's why we used oat flour instead of wheat. If you don't have such an impediment, you can replace oat flour with wheat flour in a 1:1 ratio.
All of this gives us wholesome avocado cookies bursting with fibres (15% of your RDI), healthy fats (only 5 grams), and small traces of natural sugars (less than 2% of your RDI). Follow our simple steps below and get these cuties on your plate in only 30 minutes!
