Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

So today’s recipe was a bit of an accident. I was trying to make a treat to take to a friend who’s very heart-health conscious. I dreamt up these brownies made with avocado and olive oil thinking they’d be the perfect treat without blowing the saturated fat out of the park. I made them.

They were not very good.

They are still sitting in my fridge, begging someone to eat them. I mean, what can you expect of a brownie made with avocado?

Not much.

So I said screw it and looked in my pantry. I’ve been making a lot of pudding cookies lately, but none with chocolate pudding. I had a box, along with some peanut butter chips, so I gave ’em a whirl.

They are so much better than avocado brownies. You should definitely make these. In fact, I don’t even have any left because after we sampled them I stored them in a Ziploc bag, which the dog found 2.5 seconds later and inhaled (the cookies, not the bag).

I wonder if I could interest the dog in some avocado brownies?
