I am obsessed with kale chips! I found this recipe on Meghan Telpner’s website. I’ve made them in the oven and also in the dehydrator and these are soooo yummy and healthy too! 1 bunch makes 4 small servings or 2 large depending on the kale lover involved.. I can eat a whole bunch myself, easily!
- 1 bunch kale – I use green or black/Lacinato
- 1/4 cup unsalted almonds (or almond butter)
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons maple syrup or 1-2 dates
- 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
- 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
- 1 dash cayenne
Place all marinade ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth. Add water as needed just in order to blend. Remember: you will be drying this out again later.
With your hands, mix together the kale and marinade, massaging gently.
Transfer to dehydrator rack or parchment lined baking sheet.
Stick in your dehydrator on medium-high setting (I use 130 degrees) or in your oven on its lowest temp with the oven door left slightly open.
In the dehydrator it will take about 4-5 hours for them to reach the perfect crunchiness. Drying times will vary in oven.
