Flourless Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies for the chocoholics out there!  

However, these aren’t your typical chocolate chunk cookies!  These cookies are gluten free, vegan and good for you!  Yes, good for you!  Made with avocado, one of my favorite superfoods…see post from yesterday!  They also include banana, cocoa, dark chocolate chunks and coconut sugar.

I absolutely fell in love with these cake-like cookies!  My little helper loved them too!  However, these were not my husband’s favorite cookies…we agreed to disagree on this recipe!

Not only are they super chocolatey, but they are made with wholesome ingredients! What’s not to love???  Speaking about love, whip these up for a healthy and decadent Valentine’s Day Treat!
