From the dirt to our plate; the trials and realities of first-time farm ownership

Lower Carb Cookie: Chocolate & Avocado?

If you follow the link to the recipe for these Avocado & Chocolate cookies, they look way too good to be true…so you know I had to try them. Admittedly, I did not use a Keto peanut butter or even PB Fit Powder so these still could have been healthier had I changed a few things.

I did reduce the amount of regular peanut butter to 1/3 of a cup. I also used stevia/erythritol sweetener instead of maple syrup and used 1/4 a cup of organic mini chocolate chips.

My recipe looked like the following:

  • 1/3 C Creamy Peanut Butter
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 C Unsweetened Cacao Powder
  • 1 Tbsp Stevia/Erythritol Sweetener
  • 1/4 C Organic Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Pink Himalayan Salt to sprinkle on top

I followed the link recipe directions for baking except I made the cookies smaller. I ended up with 10 cookies total.

Half way through the nutritional math, I was already disappointed in my totals! Who knew that 1/2 cup of Unsweetened Cacao Powder had a whopping 23.35 grams of carbs!?!

In the end, each cookie averages 123.5 calories, 10.6g of carbs, 3.93g of protein & 9.49g of fat. This is just a ballpark figure but I can pretty much guarantee by looking at the paper towel I cooled these on…some of the fat grams were left behind.

In a pinch…when you really need something sweet, these will do. I’m not sold on the texture but overall, the flavors are there. I do however think my PB Fat Bombs are much more satisfying with far less carbohydrates. You live, you learn.
