Kale Brownies


This Kale brownies was the result of my husbands mistake. You want to know what. My husband got Kale instead of spinach in the grocery shopping. I know that Kale has lots of benefits but I haven’t cooked it before and not sure whether my family likes it’s taste. So was searching for interesting recipe that my family will love. Then I bumped into this recipe.

I loved it because of it’s simplicity in ingredients and gave it a try. It was an instant hit in our family. I modified little things from the original recipe.My son commented ‘ Mom, The brownies smell great even in the Oven’. How nice is it to get a comment like this from your little picky eater. He is the one who doesn’t eat anything in green color in his food. But he devoured this Kale Brownie. That is a win win situation for both me and my kids. My daughter often ask me to make this for her snack. So now you know why you should bake this Kale Brownies.

Health Benefits of Kale

Kale is called as King of all healthy greens. Kale belongs to cabbage family.They have very little calories and fat. The large portion of the fat in it is the most beneficial Omega 3 Fatty Acids. They are rich in Anti oxidants and excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin K. They also have Anti Cancer properties. It also help in your weight loss. So definitely include this super veggie in your diet at least once a week.

Can I use any other greens?

Yes, You can use Spinach in the place of Kale. Be innovative in trying new combinations.

How did I made Kale Brownies

As I said I adapted this recipe, I made changes from the original recipe. I used Whole Wheat Flour in the place of All purpose flour. I also used 50 – 50 granulated sugar and Jaggery. The first step starts from melting chocolate chips with butter. When it’s cooling down steam the cleaned Kale leaves and puree it. Beat eggs and sugar + Jaggery, then adding the dry ingredients. Mix the melted chocolate and pureed Kale. It looks so glossy and I loved that. Once you start bake the brownie in the oven, your house will smell heavenly and you will say the same dialogue as my son. I used my favorite Brownie Pan to bake this.
