They are also made with whole wheat flour and a lot of oats! With just 1/4 cup butter and 2/3 cup brown sugar in the whole recipe (makes about 3 dozen cookies) they are pretty dang good and filled with fiber from the oats and whole wheat flour along with some heart-healthy fats from the avocado. Of course I had to add chocolate chips too. I actually thought they were a little heavy on the chocolate chips (which is probably the first time I’ve ever said that about chocolate in my life) so next time I’ll probably only put about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips. Trust me on this one and try them out. You’ll love them and they are a great treat that you can feel a little better about indulging in than your typical chocolate chip cookie.
Don’t worry I’ve already eaten….3…4…well it’s not really important. Bon appetit!
