Banavocado Cookies

Avocado cookies?? That's right! And they are tasty too. Adding avocados to baked goods in replacement of butter or oil is a great way to lower the fat and calories. This recipe is simple and delicious. The banana gives the cookies a great flavor as the avocado gives it a fluffy and soft texture. I added white chocolate chips to this batch because well, you can't go wrong with chocolate. I hope you enjoy this recipe :)
