Okay, this might sound weird at first, but trust me, it's not!  Chocolate avocado cookies are amazing, easy to make and a brat cure for the office 15:00 o'clock dip! We baked, tested and adjourned, they work! Chicks with (healthy) cookies are happy (& healthy) chicks! 

At first, you might think it's odd to add avocados in a recipe for something sweet. Truth is, you can add it to basically anything, and the 'green' taste will fade away in the baking process! Pretty cool right? And because it's rich in the healthy types of fat, you won't need to add any other kind of oil to the mixture. Further more, these cookies are dairy free & gluten free, so anyone can enjoy them. Check out the super easy, yet delicious recipe below!


Chocolate avocado cookies



- 1 ripe avocado

- 1 ripe banana

- 2 large eggs

Chocolate avocado cookies


Start by pre heating your oven at 180 degrees Celsius, and put a baking sheet on a large tray, setting up your "work field".  Mash the avocado and the bananas and scoop them in a mixing bowl.  Beat in the eggs and begin incorporating all the remaining ingredients, leaving the chocolate chips for last. By the end you should have a nice gooey batter which you can scoop into biscuits on the tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on the size and thickness you go for. Let cool and enjoy!
