1Baked Chocolate Kale ChipsYES, this happened.

The thought of chocolate being paired with kale kind of blew my mind. Initially, I just said why? But the pairing sparked  my curiosity…I had to have it. If it involves kale, I’M IN!

If you aren’t fond of kale, or if your kiddies who refuse to eat their greens, these are a great way to eat your kale! Sweet, crunchy, and rich deep dark chocolate flavor.

kaleNutritional Content of Kale:

Kale is full of essential vitamins A, C and K as well as minerals like copper, potassium, iron, manganese and phosphorus. 1 cup of kale has only about 40 calories AND it packs almost 3 grams of protein!

Benefits of kale:

  • Detoxification and Weight loss
  • Strengthens Your Immune System
  • Healthier Hair, Skin & Nails
  • Helps prevent optical disorders and helps store vitamins in the retina
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Prevents various cancers such as colon, prostate and ovarian.

Baked Chocolate Kale ChipsWant to make these raw? Go for it! Once you ensure all of your ingredients are raw, make the recipe the same way and place it into a dehydrator at 105 F for 8-10 hours. If you don’t have a dehydrator, place it into your oven at it’s lowest temperature with the door cracked open with a wooden spoon, and dry for around the same amount of time.

Of course, the ingredient sources will be up to you, but I wanted to share my favorites:

  • Author: Jasmine Briones / Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large bunches of kale, roughly chopped

Chocolate Coconut Cream:


Instructions

  1. Soak the cashews for 2 hours. If your dates are not soft, soak them as well.
  2. Preheat the oven to 300F. Prepare 2 large baking sheets.
  3. Wash kale destem, and tear into large medium pieces.
  4. Blend all of the chocolate coconut cream ingredients together in a high speed blender or food processor until smooth.
  5. In a large bowl, place your kale and pour over 1/2 of the cream to start. You will need enough cream to evenly coat every chip, so add more as needed.
  6. Evenly distribute the kale over the baking sheets, being sure that they are not touching.
  7. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven, and flip the kale.
  8. Bake for another 5 to 10 minutes, but watch them closely! They may burn quickly if left in the oven a few moments too long.
  9. Remove when crispy, and cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Store in an airtight container.
