Sneaky Green Vanilla Coconut Cookies

Sneaking greens into delicious recipes might be my new favorite thing. Especially when they can taste this good.

We’ve been trying to limit our trips to the grocery store as much as possible during this time (self isolation due to covid-19) which means we don’t always have fresh leafy greens on hand. Especially towards the end of the week.

Enter: Powdered greens.

I used to only use powdered greens when travelling (#1 on the packing list truly. It’s a god send!) but since discovering a greens powder that tasted this good…

game o v e r. 

They are now officially a part of my morning routine which looks like:

  1. Lemon water
  2. Workout
  3. Greens powder & water
  4. Breakfast

I had never thought of incorporating them outside of my morning bevy but…..

One day after one too many lion’s mane lattes I got a little cheeky & decided to add them into a vanilla coconut zucchini cookie recipe I was developing. 

The result= Bake more after too many lion’s mane lattes.

They are SO tasty!
