Better-not-bitter kale brownies

Try our kid-approved healthy brownie recipe

You’ve seen kale fried, juiced and shaked. But have you seen it baked into a brownie? The idea baffled us at first, but when we knew it could be done, we decided to jump in on it. Who wouldn’t want to sneak in a little healthy in their favourite indulgence?

We wanted to make sure the recipe was great, so we tested it on kids. The verdict: yummy. They ate their daily dose of veggies without even knowing it. You’re welcome, moms!
