By now we are all familiar with enjoying avocados as guacamole or serving them on toast. However, an avocado chocolate chip cookie bar is also quite amazing!
Yes, you can bake with avocados. They can be used as a butter substitute, which is great for those who don’t eat dairy and 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!
