My husband made fun of me as I was mixing them up, but he partook in many of them!  These Vegan Avocado Cookies made him a believer.

Avocado makes everything better right? These healthy cookies are perfect for St Patrick’s Day.  They have a slight hint of green and a minty flavor.

  1. I do not have a food processor,I have a blender.Would I be able to mix them sufficiently by hand? They sound and look great,would love to try them.
    1. Why don't you try mixing the wet ingredients in a blender and then transfer to a bowl and mix by hand. I think that could work
  2. Can I make the oat flour in a food processor first? I don't have any store-bought. If not, can I use almond flour or some kind of almond flour coconut flour mix?
    1. Yes you can. That is how I made my oat flour for this recipe. Almond flour may work, but don't try coconut flour. It's not an easy sub
  3. Hi Melissa. I made these cookies last night and they are tasty. At first I was skeptical because the mint and maple combo smelled awful (I even cut down the mint to 1/2 tsp because I was afraid of the contrast), but I've made your recipes in the past and trusted that these cookies would come out as a tasty treat. And they did. I like how they aren't greasy like when you use butter and they have a nice firm consistency. I shared a bit or two with my 1 year-old and he seemed to enjoy it. Keep up the good work!
    1. Update: I tried this cookie recipe several more times over the past 2 months and they are still tasty. I tried this with coconut flour, and used 1/2 cup coconut flour and added a few tablespoons of water to the mix. The results came out ok; I think I put in too much water as the cookies fell apart and they seemed a little mushy. I will keep experimenting as I think this is a delicious recipe. Enjoy your recipes, and I forward them to others looking for simple and delicious recipes.
    1. I never saw your comment. Sometimes actual comments end up in spam. :( Do you have a question about a recipe?
  4. I made these for the first time today and they were a hit with all 3 kids - they each had 2 and would have had more! I did not have enough maple syrup so I added some dates for sweetness and had a handful of chickpeas also as they were sitting on the counter at the time. I cleaned out the food processor with a spoon before washing it - delicious raw too! Can't wait to try more recipes :)
    1. I made these with one drop of peppermint essential oil. I think they helped greatly to reduce the avocado taste because I tasted the batter before and after and I thought it made a big difference. Just FYI. The recipe was awesome.
  5. The whole family loved these cookies! soft in the inside and crispy in the outside. I feel like trying these with other flavour combinations such as hazelnut/chocolate...
