I am always looking for new ways to incorporate superfoods into my diet without having plain, boring salad and this cookie is the perfect solution. The combination of avocados and dark chocolate provide you not only 20 essential nutrients and an array of health benefits, but also a perfect superfood packed dessert. You can also substitute almond milk for any type of nondairy milk that you prefer.

#SpoonTip: In this particular recipe, I used 365 Everyday Value Dark Chocolate Baking Chunks from Whole Foods, which, may contain milk. If you are strictly vegan or want to avoid any traces of milk products, substitute this chocolate for another brand of vegan chocolate. I recommend Enjoy Life’s Dark Chocolate Morsels.
