You’ve seen kale fried, juiced and shaken. But have you seen it baked into a brownie? Who wouldn’t want to sneak in a little dose of healthy in their favourite indulgence? These gluten free brownies have a rich coconut chocolate flavour, and won’t last long.

We wanted to make sure our kale brownies taste great, so we tested it on some kids. The verdict: YUMMY! They ate their daily dose of veggies without even knowing it. You’re welcome, mums!
