Zucchini carrot kale savory ‘cookies’

kale zucchini carrot patiesLookie what I baked! I’m calling them cookies, but truth be told they could easily be named veggie patties or just delicious-baked-morsels-that-you-could-munch-on-forever-and-ever.

kale zucchini carrot patiesI started out wanting a soft cookie type of baked good, something healthy and savory that I could snack on in between meals. And that’s what I got. These gorgeous things are quite addictive, so having just one is not really an achievable task. The carrots add a lovely, natural sweetness and the zucchini helps keep them moist during baking. If you’d like to make them crunchier or simply more firm, use a smaller ratio of zucchini to flour or skip the zucchini altogether and make them just with carrot and greens – kale, spinach, collard greens or any other leaves you fancy.
