Chocolate Chip Green Cookies

You will be pleasantly surprised when your kids will bite into these yummy vegan and gluten-free chocolate chip cookies and you tell them they just ate their “greens” and they want more! 

I added a mix of kale, spinach and collards but you can just stick with one green leafy veggie too.  Oh … btw….my traditional Italian papa try them and now he can’t stop eating them!
