Yep! Chocolate Avocado Biscuits. My kiddies not only love these but have no clue there is their most hated vegetable, avocado, in them (ok I just learnt that avocados are actually a fruit! Oh the embarrassment!). These are egg and nut free and can even be made without gluten and dairy. Not bad huh!?

These came about as a variation of the very popular Chocolate Chickpea Biscuits. I wanted to create something similar (a soft almost cake like biscuit) without the gluten for our gluten free folks (you can use GF flour in this recipe) and also the goodness of a hidden veggie (or surprise fruit) I am so obsessed with avocado at the moment despite hating it for the last 31 years. So naturally had to use this as the hidden veggie. Trust me, you can’t even tell it has avocado in it. My avocado hating partner was none the wiser until I let it slip.

I hope you like them as much as we do!
