green-treats.jpg

Several weeks ago I received an email from weelicious user, Katie Hamilton, kindly thanking me for our baby frittata recipe. I felt a great deal of pride reading that the only way Katie’s son would eat eggs was when she made him baby frittatas. Katie reciprocated by giving me the most genius recipe idea_ green cookies. Katie’s mother had made a them for her when she was a baby and Katie continues the tradition by making them for her son. If your toddler protests against eating greens, you have to get him to try these! I call them green treats only because I like for Kenya to associate cookies with dessert, but no matter you call them, I guarantee your family will call them delicious.

I made a dozen of these green treats when I was testing them out. I got one, Kenya had 3 and my husband polished off the rest. They're that good AND super healthy!

    I just made a dozen of these and my little one (who refuses all green things) has had two already! I'm wondering how they store best and for how long?

    YUMMY! My kids gobbled these up. I used Collard Greens and served them with ketchup for lunch. The sesame seeds add a nice flavor. My son asked if we could call them Delicious Treats! Thank you for another great way to eat our greens.

    These are **really** good. I am out of sesame seeds and have been craving sage (I miss it in the summer) so I added some sage. It was really good, but since my daughter wanted to dip them into marinara sauce, I will probably try basil or rosemary next time. I think my husband will like them, too! I think these would be good made bite size as cocktail party finger foods.

    Probably a stupid question but when steaming the swiss chard, do you put it in a steamer basket or submerge it in the boiling water?

      i put it in a basket :)

    I agree with Meg - surprisingly good. My toddler and I gobbled them up. I'll double the recipe next time. :-)

    These really are that good! Mine were a little too soggy to form firm patties, though. Next time I'm going to get the water out of the steamed chard with the salad spinner.

    Wow, these are excellent! I've been meaning to make them for awhile now and finally did (now regretting we didn't try them sooner!) My picky 17 mo wolfed one down and I am thrilled, knowing how much chard was packed into just one. Love 'em!

    just made these for lunch and the family loved them...even my junk food junky husband. I chopped the chard before steaming (it made everything fit in the steamer and was much easier than chopping afterwards) and served it with sour cream. I'll note that I liked the thinner patties that were more crunchy! Thanks for another great recipe!

    My 19 month old loved them. A little salty, maybe I didn't use enough chard.

    Quick question - why add the sesame seeds? looks? do they really add that much nutritional value? Have I just never had fresh enough ones, or do they really add any flavor?

    • Catherine

      The sesame seeds add a nutty flavor and a nice slight crunch to the texture. They are also packed with Calcium, Iron, and Vitamin B1!

    I too have been meaning to try this recipe forever. We just got a huge bunch of chard from our CSA and I finally made them. My 3 year old said yum the minute he bit one. But my toughest one to please- the hubby ate several and told me \" they were really good.\" Happy mom, happy wife tonight!!!

    Tried these tonight and really liked them but found them to be salty. Any recommendations on how much to reduce the salt for next time?

  • yesim1cil

    Just made this! My son loved it with ketchup. Despite reducing salt to 3/4 tsp the patties were still salty :( I guess the best ratio is 1/2 tsp or may be even less. They are very healthy tough ;)

    Could I use kale for these, instead of swiss chard?

    Hello friends, I'm Antonio Laura, from Stockholm-Sweden. I'm new here on this blog, i read interesting articles our here and i have a testimonies how to restore lost relationship and to make a marriage work online blog comment section and i also want to add little of my own life experience this will be helpful to many of us here who are seeking for answers and solution to relationship problems, like getting back with ex love partner, how to save a broken marriage and how to stop divorce. ([email protected] gmail. com)
    Read my true life marriage story, After being married to my husband Antonio, for 9 years we have no child of our own, i was unable to get pregnant after so many years of marriage. This was a big problem i was having with my husband Anderson, he believe all hope is gone and fault was mine not to get pregnant, he broke-up with me because of this same issue of not able to get pregnant, I explained to him and did everything possible to make him understand to bring him back home, I visited medical doctors for personal counseling, I want my husband back into my life i love him so much. I prayed him to return with everything, i made promises to him and family members talked with him that the problem is not mine not having a child but he refused. I explained my marriage problem to my best-friend, a colleague at work office and she suggested that I would rather contact a Spiritualist Love-spell caster to return my husband home and bless me with fruit of womb. I have already read so much online about this same spellcaster man that my friends advised me to contact Dr.Oduduwa the great herbalist from a tropical Sahara afrikana region, that can help me launched a love-spell to get husband back home to me, but I'm the kind who never liked to believe in spiritual power or spells, I had no choice i gave it a try, I send message to Oduduwa private contact address the spelling channel. Oduduwa told me he can help me, he assure me there was no problem with me that everything will be fine within 7 days of spelling and enchantment prayers, I believe and waited patiently for the seventh day to come because i can't wait to see my heart desires come true. Oduduwa the Spiritual spellmaster threw the spelling into air, and did every other spelling charms on my behalf in his temple at mid-night.
    Surprisingly the second day it was around 16.00AM. I received a phone call from unknown number, behold Anderson my husband calling me on phone, I was so happily amazed, I answered my phone call, behold it was my husband voice, we had a long conversation and apologize to me. he return back home within 7 days as Oduduwa has said it. Two months after i was feeling somehow feverish, i visited family doctor for check-up, behold i was three weeks pregnant after my husband return back home.
    I am so happy today, just last month i gave birth to a baby boy, after so many years in marriage without having a child, Oduduwa lunched a charm spell to return my husband back home to me and he prepared a herbal, roots traditional concussion medicine for giving me pregnancy to have a child.
    The joy and happiness of heart is too much, I already promised Oduduwa to share my good news testimony of his good work after result is out successful, its was very easy and simple for me working and following Dr.oduduwa instructions. It perfectly work for me without any side effect. I have this good intention to share this good news out here, so as anyone having similar marriage/ relationship crisis to contact Dr.Oduduwa for instant solution to love problems like the following,
    i) love-spell get back ex-love relationship, Stop Divorce, Spell to end a love relationship, etc.
    ii) Traditional roots and herbs to cure blood cancer, Aarskog syndrome, Aase Smith syndrome.
    ABCD syndrome. Abderhalden Kaufmann Lignac syndrome. Abdominal aortic aneurysm.
    Abdominal chemodectomas with cutaneous angiolipomas.
    Abdominal cystic lymphangioma. (Cure Sexually Transmitted Disease)
    Diarrheal Diseases. ...HIV/AIDS. ... Stroke. Respiratory Cancers. ...Tuberculosis. ... Do you want to satisfy your love partner with sex on bed, strong men erection.
    I highly recommend this great man Dr.Oduduwa if you having similar infections or disease.
