Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies







Step 1

Preheat oven to 325˚F.

Step 2

In a large bowl, beat the butter, avocado and sugars for 3-4 minutes, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

Step 3

Add the flour, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder and salt and stir or beat on low until almost combined; add the chocolate chips and stir just until blended.

Step 4

Drop dough by the spoonful onto a parchment-lined sheet and flatten each slightly with your hand. Bake for 12-14 minutes, until set around the edges but still soft in the middle. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
