So I have made Chocolate Chip Chickpea Cookies and Chocolatey Avocado Chickpea Cookies. Now I am playing with one of my other favourite flavours, cinnamon. Even though chocolate is my favourite flavour, I would have to say that cinnamon is probably a close second.

Now I could have called this an “oatmeal” raisin cookie, but it’s not. No oatmeal. It does remind me of one though, which is fabulous! Nice and chewy goodness!

  1. Wow – these look and sound great! I never would have thought of putting in avocado into cookies, but it sounds really good. Thanks so much for sharing this over at Healthy Vegan Fridays. I have pinned your recipe to our Pinterest Board.

    • I started putting avocados in cookies with my Chocolate Avocado Chickpea cookies, because a friend of mine was fighting cancer and I wanted to make her treats with more healthy fats in them 🙂
