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!

  1. Soak nuts in water with 1 tsp of salt overnight or 8 - ­12 hours. Drain and Rinse.
  2. Rinse Kale and tear into sections. I use a salad spinner to get the extra moisture out.
  3. Combine nuts and all ingredients except for Kale in a food processor or Vitamix.
  4. 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.
  5. Place onto your food dehydrator trays by the handful and repeat with remaining Kale.
  6. Dehydrate between 115 - ­125 degrees for 8­ - 16 hours or until crispy.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to 7 days. Although it never lasts that long in our home!
Recipe Notes

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 :­)
