Avocado Chocolate Brownie Cookies

Okay, I know this title is long, as are all my titles. But I feel the need to describe the recipe as much as possible – in the heading. So please excuse my lengthiness (that is a word – I checked).

Alright, back to the cookies! Here’s the recipe and description! To be honest, this is my first time using avocado as the base in a cookie. I was not sure how it would work out, but I was pleasantly surprised! These cookies are fudgy – much like a brownie, and they don’t crumble like some grain-free cookies do. The dark, rich chocolate is, to me, amazing. I am a dark chocolate girl – there’s not much milk chocolate I like – it’s too sweet for me. If you’re on the same page, you’ll love these cookies. Here’s the recipe!
