Avocado Chocolate Chip Cookies (Paleo)

Goodness gracious, I feel like I’m getting old.

Friday was my little brother’s high school graduation. But in my mind, I still see him as 12 years old. Which doesn’t actually make too much sense as he’s now a foot taller than me :/

So just in name of reliving childhood a bit, Ive got a chocolate chip cookie recipe to share! Ok, so there’s avocado in it. But come on, coming from me, what else do you expect?

IMPORTANT TIP WHEN MAKING THESE: I don’t know if it’s just me, but baked avocados kinda have a weird taste. Luckily, I’ve learned the secret to using them in a baked good: Wait a few hours (or preferably the next day) before digging in! Not only does all traces of avocado disappear, but the baked good gets a super rich taste and the avocado prevents the cookies from getting hard/stale! I recommend making these at night to have the next day, or in the morning to have later that night.

    • Hi! Unfortunately I do not have an Instagram account, but I’ll definitely keep an eye out for your blog posts! As for the tapioca flour, I would think that you could use arrowroot flour instead, if you have that on hand. If not, I know I used to make this recipe with oat flour (ground-up oats) instead of the tapioca… I don’t remember the amount however. I’m going to be making this recipe again soon, so I’ll make it with oats and report back!
