Peanut butter avocado cookies - an unusual combination of ingredients but these peanut butter cookies are so soft and chewy #cookies 

What do you do when you have avocados in the fridge, likely to go rotten at any moment?  Well, you could make guacamole out of them.  Or in a salad, like my simple avocado salad or salmon and avocado salad.  Or make chocolate avocado frosting with them.  Or make cookies out of them.  Wait! What? Whoever heard of making cookies with avocados?

Welcome to my world, where my brain is constantly thinking of new ways to use everyday ingredients! And what better than to combine one of my favorite foods (avocado) with one of my other favorite foods (peanut butter) than in a cookie?  Not surprisingly these are really soft and chewy cookies, and apart from the green color where the avocado hasn’t been completely mashed in, you wouldn’t even know there was any ‘green vegetable’ in them!

Give it a go and tell me I’m not completely losing my mind!
