California Country Cookies


In California we love the goodness of oats, seeds, avocados and dark chocolate, so we combined them in cookies!


Serves: 48

2 Tbsp. chia seeds
1/4 cup water
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup ground flax seeds
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. fine sea salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup mashed ripe Fresh California Avocado
3/4 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups uncooked rolled oats (not instant)
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup roasted, salted sunflower seeds
1 cup dark chocolate chunks (62% cacao)

As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting.
Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

  3. Combine flour, ground flax seeds, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  4. Beat butter and mashed avocado together until very smooth. Add in sugar; mix until creamy.
