I started the morning by whipping up a batch of green juice. I blended together kale, apple, pear and lime. Since I don’t have a juicer, I made this in the blender and it was really more like green pulp. Although I thought it was delicious, my kids weren’t into it. I did not want it to go to waste, so got creative and made it into a form of cookie. We took these to the park as a snack and the girls loved them. A great way to use leftover juice or smoothie! I am a HUGE fan of repurposing food.
Green Juice Cookies
1 banana, mashed
1/2 cup green juice, pulp or smoothie (mine contained kale, apple, pear and lime, blended together in my VitaMix)
1/4 cup teff (I add this for a bit of added nutrition, you can use whatever flour you have on hand, or skip it and add extra oats)
1 cup oats
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pre-heat oven to 350 F
In medium bowl, mash banana
Add egg and mix well
Add the remainder of the ingredients until well incorporated
Spoon onto well greased baking sheet and bake for about 12-15 minutes or until cooked through. Enjoy!
