This recipe is a perfect dessert to offer your guests over Thanksgiving. The Double Chocolate Cookies are gluten-free, Paleo and safe for those with sucrose (sugar) intolerance, clinically known as Genetic Sucrase-Isomaltase Deficiency (GSID).
Sucrose and starch tolerance vary. Individuals may need to modify the recipe to meet personal diet goals.


  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • 3 tablespoons honey, agave or stevia
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup peanut butter or almond butter
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup chocolate chips (cacao chips)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together the avocado and sweetener until smooth. Then add the egg and mix until no lumps remain.
  3. Next add the peanut butter and slowly add the cocoa powder 2 tablespoons at a time. If the mixture looks too sticky, leave 1 or 2 tablespoons out. The consistency should be smooth just like the peanut butter.
  4. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand and put the mixture in a plastic sandwich bag. Cut a hole the size of a nickel in one corner and squeeze out 1-inch rounds onto the parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the middle of the cookies look set, not shiny.
  6. Makes 12-18 cookies. Store in the refrigerator.
