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!
Recipe adapted from Laurenda Marie

- To make flax egg, stir together flax meal and water in a small bowl. Set aside for 10 minutes or until a gel is formed.

- Using a tablespoon, drop dough onto lined or greased cookie sheet.
- Bake on 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until lightly crispy on the edges. Let cool and enjoy 🙂
