Before you even have a moment to question Maple Cinnamon Kale Chips you need to just bake yourself a batch.
I have been loving all of the high calorie , decadent holiday treats people have been posting ~ but I always stick to my healthy, whole food bites.
These kale chips are a great way to stay on plan while at the same time getting some sweet crunch.
By now most of us have tried basic kale chips (recipe here.) Have you ever tried sweet ones though? Oh don’t be shy.
Even my kids are willing to have some from time to time.
These sweet chips will surprise you with their crunch, sweet maple & comfort food spice.
They will also keep you in those skinny jeans and tiny skirts for holiday cocktail parties.
They will also keep you flying through the air at Tae Kwon Do…
A total win if you ask me!
All you need to do is grab a bunch of kale. Rinse the leaves under cool water. Dry them well so they crisp up and don’t just steam in the oven.
Tear the kale into tiny pieces. Lay ’em flat on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
Bake at 300 F for about 20 minutes until kale chips are slightly browned, dry and crispy!
Do you ever make kale chips at home? What are some fun flavors you add to yours?
- 1 bunch fresh Kale, washed, dried, remove stem pieces & tear into small pieces
- 1/2 teaspoon fine Sea Salt
- 1 tablespoon melted unrefined Coconut Oil
- 1 tablespoon pure Maple Syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Preheat oven to 300 F with the rack in the middle. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment or a Silpat liner. In a small bowl combine coconut oil, maple syrup, salt and spices.Toss kale pieces with this mixture. Lay kale out on the baking sheet in a single layer.
- Bake for 10 minutes, flip with a pair of tongs and bake for another 10 minutes or until crispy. Your kale chips will crisp up more as they cool. If certain pieces are crispy before others you can remove those from the baking sheet so they do not burn. Continue to bake those that have not crisped up.
- For crispy kale chips you must remove the tough stem pieces and use the leaves only. Be sure to lay kale out on the baking sheet in a single layer so it can crisp up and not get soggy and steamy.
