Make It Monday: Chocolate Chip Avocado Cookies

Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today’s Make it Monday is a recipe…yayy!!! My two guilty indulgences in life are wine and dark chocolate (together or separately).  While I’m not a fan of junk food at all, in my opinion it’s a waste of taste, I do love a little sweet treat every now and then.  I’ve been hearing great things about cookies with avocados, so I hopped on Pinterest and found a pretty simple recipe from Smoothie Lover.  The cookies were very moist and I think I ate at least four in one sitting, even Little Model A had a few.  Now I have to agree with Smoothie Lover, these cookies are much better when stored in the refrigerator.  I think next I maybe throw some macadamia nuts into the recipe.

Did I mention these cookies are HEALTHY?  Let me know how you like the recipe.
