Kale chocolate chip cookies

Do you think this is the reason no trick-or-treaters came to my house?

They’re delicious and gluten free. What more could you ask for? These kale chocolate chip cookies are adapted from the Fifty shades of kale cookbook I posted about last week.

Yeah, this is what theirs looked like. Never mind, just pretend mine look a little less bloppy.

To start I grabbed a few leafs of kale from the garden

and pulled off the tough stems.

Then I tore them into pieces

and chopped the pieces up until they were pretty small.

Like that.

Into a bowl I tossed a stick of butter,

Brown sugar,

molasses,

the eggs,

and vanilla. Then mixed again.

Next I added the dry ingredients, gluten free flour,

xanthan gum,

oats,

and chopped kale.

Maybe I tossed in a little bit more.

And mixed it all in.

Next the chocolate chips,

After I mixed them all together and was ready to put spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet I noticed I’d forgotten the baking powder!!

So I slowly worked in a little sprinkle of baking powder in at a time until I got it all in.

Baking gluten free with xanthan gum is pretty sticky so this was quite a task. Please remember to put the baking powder in with the flour.

Finally I got them onto the cookie sheets and topped with additional chocolate chips. Baked at 350 for 12-15 minutes and they were just fine!
