Paleo Breakfast Cookies have kale, avocados, and sweet almonds. The delish cookie you feel good about eating.
There are times when sometimes I think I am trying to get a LEEETLE TOO creative with my recipe creations.
And today was MOST DEFINITELY, x eleventy billion, one of those times.
I had been pondering “green smoothie Cookies” for a LONG time, and was pretty excited about the idea. But also, nervous.
How would you react to green cookies even if I did tell you they were healthy and paleo friendly?
So, I made them for you anyway. And I made them in a food processor, so that would only need ONE bowl.
It’s all about the little things to intrigue your taste buds enough to wanna munch on a recipe.
HOW-EV-ER, What I thought would turn into a totally green breakfast cookie, turned into a cookie… with green pieces.
They most definitely did not resemble the kale smoothie in cookie form that my mind had pictured.
BUT, to my MAJOR surprise, they were DELICIOUS beyond words. The kind of delicious that when you text your husband that you made kale cookies, he just texts back that emoji of a shocked face, about a million times, and says he won’t try them.
And then comes home… and eats 5.
The kind of YUMMY NUMMY GOODNESS that is lightly crisp on the outside (thanks to the honey!) but then SO chewy and the inside. For serious, I can’t. EVEN. with the chew factor of these cookies.
That also justsohappens to be made with no egg, butter or oil. Don’t judge avocado in cookies you guys.
My favorite healthy chocolate chip cookie recipe TO DATE uses it. It’s pretty much magic.
So, I did what all people who live and breathe social media would do, and asked you peeps on Instagram if you would judge me for posting cookies that kind of looked like the spent some time cozying up with a swamp creature.
And guess what? Ya’ll WANTED THE RECIPE. Like, REALLY BADLY.
So, here. Kale cookies for your face.
In one bowl. That you can feel good about because PALEO and SUPERFOOD.
And I PROMISE/PINKY SWEAR/Insert whatever way you will believe me here, that they do not taste like kale.
You can trust me.
