Need to do that!! Reply faithcatherine July 17, 2013 at 5:03 pm (7 years ago) It’s wonderful and you can hardly tell that the butter has been replaced. Let me know how it is if you try it! Reply Miss Messy July 18, 2013 at 4:24 pm (7 years ago) Healthy… fantastic! Love that these use avocado! 🙂 Reply Liz (Little Bitty Bakes) July 18, 2013 at 4:43 pm (7 years ago) This is interesting – I’ve never thought to swap out butter for avocado in cookie recipes (even though I’ve done it in quick breads, etc.). I may need to try it! Maybe I could increase the nutrition aspect too by lowering the sugar content – maybe substitute for some stevia? Reply faithcatherine July 18, 2013 at 5:34 pm (7 years ago) I love swapping avocado for butter. It’s a way to up the nutrition easily and works in most cases! I’ve made cookies that use honey instead of sugar in them; and agave could certainty be substituted instead. Since there’s no need for spreading, I’m sure stevia could be substituted for white sugar!

Reply rebacox July 19, 2013 at 10:30 am (7 years ago) UMM avocados! I wonder if you could even add in a scoop of vanilla protein powder in this? Have you ever tried that? Reply faithcatherine July 19, 2013 at 10:48 am (7 years ago) I haven’t tried that; I don’t generally use protein powder. I’m sure it would certainly work! Let me know if you do! Reply crazyforcrust July 19, 2013 at 12:23 pm (7 years ago) YES! Love swapping avocado for butter. Perfect! Reply BruCrew Life July 21, 2013 at 1:15 am (7 years ago) Love the avocado in this!!
