"These cookies are great because they use the superfood kale! It's a great way to get children to eat vegetables without even knowing they're there!
These cookies are moist, cakey, and delicious. Enjoy!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 tablespoons
unsweetened cocoa powder
finely chopped kale
dark chocolate chips
These were so yummy! I was looking for a chocolate treat that was healthy, and these did the trick! To improve nutritional quality I used whole wheat flour and a natural zero calorie sweetener to replace the sugar. Besides the small bit of butter, these "cookies" are very filling and relatively healthy.
As far as taste, I call these "cake cookies," because they are like perfectly bite size pieces of moist chocolate cake. They were not as "cookie" like but I found that enjoyable. Overall an easy, yummy, and healthy alternative to standard cookie or cake making. ---And by the way, in case you're concerned--- when eating the cookies you cannot even tell there is kale. It just adds tons of nutrients!
We like the texture, but not the flavor so much. They're edible, but not good. They need more sugar and more chocolate... or maybe more of a sweeter chocolate would do the trick.
We absolutely loved these...it was a great way to begin eating "healthy" again after indulging during the holidays!!!
Next time I think I will add more cocoa, they came out greener than desired
I got some kale in a Bountiful Basket order and as I've never been a fan of kale, I had no clue what to do with it. I ran across this recipe and was doubtful but willing to try it as I had all the ingredients, except the applesauce. (Because of that I substituted a freshly puréed apple and an extra teaspoon of sugar.)
When I told my husband I was baking kale into cookies, he laughed. He wasn't laughing once he tried them. What a wonderful surprise for chocolate lovers. I would compare these to a moist muffin consistency.
I would not have believed it. Even my husband who would never eat kale just loved them. I am making more today. I made it exactly like the recipe only leaving out the chocolate chips. These are so yummy. Thanks so much for posting and coming up with this recipe.
My family loved these cookies! I added a bit of cinnamon but otherwise kept everything the same. I made one batch but they were gone so quickly I made another batch. Thanks for a wonderful cookie recipe!
