Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

By now we are all familiar with enjoying avocados as guacamole or serving them on toast or a sandwich.

Did you know that you can bake with avocados? They can be used as a butter substitute, which is great for those who don’t eat dairy or those of us who like the extra nutrition of an avocado.

I don’t taste the avocado in the chocolate chip cookie bars, but they are delicious and they have a pretty light green color!

    I’m very intrigued by this recipe. I did not know that avocado could be used in baking as a butter substitute. I don’t do a lot of baking, but I would really like to try this recipe.

    My sister showed me why her recipes are so healthy. She has been using avocado for butter for awhile.

    I have not seen a recipe using avocado in cookies but I think it would work wonderfully.

    Now this is one of the “different” recipes that at first I said no thank you but after I read it…. I think I would try this. I bet my husband would like it too.

    Never would have occurred to me to use avocado as a substitute for butter. Apple sauce yes, not avocado though.
