So…did you ever think that you would be saying avocado (health benefit post to come) and chocolate chip cookies in the same sentence because I certainly didn’t? My mom was actually the one that came across this recipe and I HAD to give it a try. It sounded pretty intriguing and had the potential to be pretty amazing if it worked. I mean…the concept was pretty cool. Replace a stick of butter with 1 1/2 avocados…hmmmmm. You’re eliminating some bad fat and adding in healthy fats and vitamins. I like this idea, but how does it taste?!?
Well, I tried them out over the weekend — the verdict…these cookies are awesome!!! :-) I LOVE them!! Okay, you can tell there is a little something different in them, but would never know that it’s avocado. They’re so soft, chewy and moist (all my favorite qualities in a cookie!). Mostly you just taste the chocolate chips and who can go wrong with that? Yum!!!
I hope you give them a try! I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
