Avocado banana flax chocolate chip cookies! (A healthier Chocolate Chip cookie)

I started with a traditional cookie recipe and changed it up to make it a healthier treat for the kid. 

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup of whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 sticks) butter, softened
1 ripe avocado
1 over ripe banana
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Chocolate Morsels (Darker chocolate would be healthier thank milk chocolate) 
3 TBLSP flax seed

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda, baking powder, flax seeds and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, banana, avocado, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
