Chocolate Kale Chips (r/v)
Getting your leafy greens while eating dessert – how is that possible!!! If you thought Cheesy Kale Chips were good – wait until you try these. Also dehydrated to maintain all the nutrition of greens, these chips fall squarely in the dessert category. If I don’t control myself, I could eat 3 large bunches of kale a day with this recipe!

Recipe from VegNews Chocolate Kale Chips:specialdeals button affiliates Chocolate Kale Chips
1-1.5 bunches kale (recommend curly kale)
1c raw cashews Chocolate Kale Chips, soaked 2 hours
1/4c nutritional yeast Chocolate Kale Chips
1/4t salt
1T agave Chocolate Kale Chips nectar or maple syrup Chocolate Kale Chips
1/4c water
6 medjool dates, pitted
1/4c raw cacao Chocolate Kale Chips or cocoa

  1. Wash and de-stem kale. Tear into large pieces. The smaller the pieces the bigger the effort in laying them out on the dehydrator trays, so I like to keep them larger. Also, the curlier the kale, the less kale you can make since there’s more surface area to cover with the “chocolate” sauce.
  2. Mix the rest of the ingredients in your Vitamix and blend until smooth.
  3. Using your hands spread coating on kale pieces, getting it inside of curls if using curly kale. Place on mesh screens and dehydrate* at 115 degrees for 8-12hrs until coating is dry. (Without a dehydrator, place in preheated oven at 250 degrees for 1hr, flipping halfway through. It won’t be stricty “raw” anymore, but it’ll still be good!)
  4. Enjoy and try not to eat them all at once!

*A basic dehydrator may look like this Chocolate Kale Chips but the top of the line is the Excalibur Chocolate Kale Chips. I recommend getting the 9-tray rather than the smaller 4 or 5 tray models if possible. Since dehydrating can sometimes be a long process, it’s nice to be able dehydrate in larger volumes.
