Lemon Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Light and lemony, these 1-bowl white chocolate chip cookies have a pale green hue from the not-so-secret ingredient: avocado. The avocado replaces the butter or oil in the recipe. Part cakey, part chewy, these cookies are a fun alternative to traditional chocolate chip cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 3 tablespoons aquafaba (or 1 egg. Aquafaba is the liquid from canned or cooked chickpeas)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup white flour
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup pistachios, roughly chopped

Optionally for sprinkling on cookies before baking

  • 1 tablespoon white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon pistachios, roughly chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the avocado, sugar, and aquafaba or egg.
  • Mix in the lemon zest, and then the flour and baking soda.
  • Stir in the white chocolate chips and pistachios.
  • The dough will be thick and sticky. To make about 12 cookies, drop about 2 teaspoons of dough per cookie onto the cookie sheet.
  • Optionally, sprinkle the tops of the cookies with extra pistachos and white chocolate chips.
  • Bake for about 12 minutes, until cooked through. Let cool before eating.
