Triple Chocolate Avocado Fudge Cookies - Gluten Free

I realise the name of this recipe is an absolute bloody mouthful, forgive me. There really is no other way to describe these cookies though. They're triple chocolate, gluten free, gooey and contain avocados (how bloody posh).

I guess this is proof that just because you're gluten free, you're not necessarily healthy. I feel like people (who just choose to be GF, not actual coeliacs) throw the whole 'Oh sorry I can't have that, I'm gluten free' about as if that makes them some health god or goddess worthy of being a swimsuit model. It doesn't, it just means they're missing out on the fun that is a gluten-filled binge. Soz.
Anyway, this recipe takes about 5 minutes to mix and 15 mins (max) to bake. So if you've got a spare bit of time and need to wow people with your baking abilities, this is the one for you. Or if you're greedy but lazy and want a Sunday evening treat, this is also pretty much all you need in your life.
What you'll need:
- 1 ripe avocado
- 2/3 cup of dark brown sugar
- 1/3 of caster sugar
- 1 large free range egg
- 2/3 cup of cocoa
- 1 tspn of bicarbonate of soda
- 2 handfuls of chocolate chunks...I used white and milk

What you'll do:
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees (I'd say 160 for fan ovens).
- Prepare the tin you intend to bake the cookies in/on. I used a muffin tin, because why not.
- Smush (technical term) the avocado into mushy little bits.
- Add the rest of the ingredients to the avocado mixture apart from the chocolate chips and mix.
- Once you've got a smooth shiny batter, you can add the chocolate chunks.
- Place on/in the tin and bake. I tend to start with 10 mins and check them before adding another 5 mins. That normally does it. The consistency should be very gooey.
Enjoy by themselves or with some vanilla ice-cream. Here's a cracking homemade vanilla ice-cream recipe.
I added some sugared peanuts/cashew nuts I had left over. They added a lovely crunchy nutty flavour. Don't do this if you're allergic to nuts though, that would be shit and quite unintelligent.
