A delicious Kale chip recipe I created after finding a spicy, cheesy tasting Kale chip variety on a road trip. These Kale chips never last long in our pantry, if they even make it there!
- 3⁄4 cup Raw Almonds
- 3⁄4 cup Raw Cashews
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/3 cup Organic Olive Oil (or avocado oil, walnut oil or hazelnut oil)
- 2 tbs Raw Honey (or Agave)
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper (double if you would like a spicy kale chip)
- 1⁄4 tsp Dry Mustard
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
- 2 tbsp Nutritional Yeast
- 1 whole Carrot (or 5 baby carrots)
- 1 whole Red Bell Pepper (any color will work or even 45 mini bell peppers)
- 2 large Kale
Soak nuts in water with 1 tsp of salt overnight or 8 - 12 hours. Drain and Rinse.
Rinse Kale and tear into sections. I use a salad spinner to get the extra moisture out.
Combine nuts and all ingredients except for Kale in a food processor or Vitamix.
Place 1⁄4 of the Kale in a large bowl and top with 1⁄4 of the mixture. Using your hands, squish the mixture into the kale until coated.
Place onto your food dehydrator trays by the handful and repeat with remaining Kale.
Dehydrate between 115 - 125 degrees for 8 - 16 hours or until crispy.
Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Although it never lasts that long in our home!
You can change the type of nuts you use for these chips, I have used a combination of walnuts, almonds and cashews. You can also use all of one kind of nut. The cashews yield the creamiest "cheesiest" taste. Experiment and post your results :)
