I’ve been seriously craving avocados lately! If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know that I believe cravings should be listened to. Of course, don’t listen to your cravings until you’ve accustomed your body to a healthier lifestyle, but once you shift out of a constant need for sugar, you should be able to be more aware of what your body actually needs! I frequently crave dark chocolate, too, so in this recipe for Paleo Avocado Chocolate Cookies I’ve combined the two.
Weird combo, I know! And I will admit that the final product is weird, but I did really enjoy these cookies! They’re super rich and dense, and when they’re warm you feel more like you’re eating brownie dough than a cookie. Really, though, does anybody object to eating brownie dough? Come on! If you really don’t like these cookies warm, try cooling them in the fridge before eating them. Emily and Jim liked them, but not until they had cooled and hardened.
Before we get to the recipe for the Paleo Avocado Chocolate Cookies, I want to invite you to join with others who are making healthy changes. I’d love to walk alongside you in your journey towards wholeness and health! Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full!” Freedom from food addictions is part of having a truly full life. This Easter week we celebrate the sacrifice Christ made for us, and his victory over death. For my family, Easter eggs represent new life and eternal life in heaven with our loving Maker!
