We all know certain foods just go together: peanut butter and bananas, bacon and eggs, milk and cookies, coffee and donuts…the list goes on. The latest perfect food pairing is going to sound weird at first, but bear with me here. Chocolate and avocado go together seamlessly; they’re made for each other and these recipes prove it.

Who said healthy had to be boring? These cookies do have a little butter them (okay you caught me), but compared to your average chocolate chip cookie, these are much lighter. Next time you’re craving a gooey, warm cookie (like right now maybe??) make these cookies.
