Yes, kale brownies… I promise I'm not crazy.
  1. loosely-packed 3 cups kale or spinach leaves (80g)
  2. 1/2 cup applesauce (120g)
  3. 2 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  4. 1 1/2 cups water (360g)
  5. 3 tbsp ground flax (18g)
  6. 3/4 cup vegetable or melted coconut oil (115g)
  7. 1 cup coconut flour (135g) (Coconut-free recipes are linked the very bottom of this post.)
  8. 3/4 cup cacao or cocoa powder (65g)
  9. 1/2 tsp salt
  10. 1/2 tsp baking soda
  11. 3/4 cup xylitol or of choice (150g)
  12. 1/16 tsp pure stevia, or 2 extra tbsp sugar of choice
  13. 1/2 cup mini , optional
  1. Preheat to 350F. Line a 9×13 pan with parchment paper, or grease well. Blend together the first 6 ingredients (if using coconut oil, make sure applesauce and water are not cold).
  2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together all remaining ingredients.
  3. Pour wet into dry and stir until just evenly combined, pour into the prepared pan, then use a full sheet of parchment or wax paper to press down firmly until the batter evenly covers the pan.
  4. Bake 19-20 minutes.
  5. Pat down hard with a pancake spatula or another sheet of parchment paper.
  6. Let brownies sit 15 minutes before cutting into squares. (As a general rule, cutting brownies with a plastic knife prevents crumbling.)
  7. They taste 10 times better the next day, so make them in advance if possible.
  8. Makes 20-24 squares.
