Chocolate Chip Kale Cookies

img_4915

The thought of a chocolate chip cookie being ruined with healthy, green kale is almost enough to make even the cookie monster take his hand out of the cookie jar.  However, this cookie is no cookie anyone  wants to walk away from! I was not only able to get my reluctant boyfriend to eat almost half a batch during my recipe testing, but now have him requesting them regularly.   With sprinklings of kale, oats, and heart healthy coconut oil, these cookies are sure to change the perception of wholesome eating and will definitely make you question your previous conceptions of kale. Now you don’t have to sip on a green smoothie or crunch and munch on a massaged kale salad to get the long list of health benefits of this very trendy leafy green!
