Chocolate Avocado Cookies

I thought it would be good to start off with a photo of these, just to show that they look (and taste!) good even though the ingredients might suggest otherwise... I wasn’t necessarily looking for a vegan recipe when I came across the idea for these cookies, but when I saw that they were healthy … Continue reading Chocolate Avocado Cookies


White Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

I wish candy canes were in season all year… If there is anything better than warm, gooey, just-out-of-the-oven chocolate chip cookies, it is warm, gooey chocolate chip cookies with melted candy cane in them.
