Description

I saw someone making a chocolate and avocado sauce on television and was instantly intrigued. I decided to have a go at making gluten, grain and dairy free cookies using avocado as the base.

Trust me I haven’t gone mad it does actually taste amazing, the result is a soft, sticky cookie that feels like it should be really bad for you!
