Kale is the secret ingredient in this recipe for moist chocolate cookies. It's a great way to get children to eat vegetables without even knowing they're there!
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! - 20 Jan 2014 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

I doubled the recipe and made 24 mini muffins, baked for 12 minutes. Used coconut sugar and half whole wheat flour, these are great! - 13 May 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
