Here we go with another healthy recipe for tasty cookies! This one calls for avocado instead of butter and oil. I’ve become addicted to healthy baking, it’s my new obsession. Good way to enjoy sweet treats without feeling guilty.

Ingredients (makes 12 cookies):

  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 whole avocado (mashed, about 1/3 cup)
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar

Remorve skin and central pit from the avocado.
