PIN Paleo Breakfast Avocado Cookies with Kale
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.
Judging by your reaction to the breakfast cookies with banana and pomegranate, healthy blueberry muffin breakfast cookies and vegan breakfast cookies with apple and raisins that we recently ate, I knew ya’ll were GAGA for cookie for breakfast.
So, I listened and I wanted to make you MORE of what you <3 <3 <3.
I got YO BACK PEEPS.
Are breakfast cookies healthy?
Typically, store-bought breakfast cookies are made with some not-so-good for you, questionable ingredients. But, if you make your breakfast cookies at home, they can be very healthy as you can load them with whole grains, heart healthy fats and nuts and other good for you ingredients like, in this case, KALE.
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, paleo friendly and the ULTIMATE of healthy breakfast meal prep recipes?
Unless you were the equal opportunity cookie-ist, the Cookie Monster, probaaablly notsowell.
Soooo, I made this avocado cookie recipe for you anyway. And I made them in a food processor, so that would only need ONE bowl.
I EVEN MADE A VIDEO AND DID A KALE DANCE FOR YOU. 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, healthy breakfast cookie, turned into a cookie… with green pieces.
These paleo breakfast avocado cookies with kale most definitely did not resemble the kale smoothie in cookie form that my mind had pictured. At ALL.
It was more like the appearance of moldy chocolate chips.
Aaaand now you REALLY REALLY wanna eat them, don’t you? I have such a way with description *wink wink* (sarcasm.)
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 paleo breakfast cookies. AT ONE TIME.
The kind of YUMMY NUMMY GOODNESS that is lightly crisp on the outside (Honey FOR THE WIN!) 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 cookies made with avocado you guys. My favorite healthy chocolate chip avocado cookies recipe (AND everyone who tries them) TO DATE uses it. It’s pretty much magic.
I know you’re still judging.
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 paleo breakfast avocado cookies with kale 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 some weirdo kale salad + breakfast cookie hybrid.
You can trust me.
The interwebz is a safe place.
