Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

Add the coconut palm sugar, cashews, agave nectar, cacao powder, coconut oil, vanilla powder, cinnamon and cayenne pepper to a high-speed blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth. In a large mixing bowl, pour the chocolate sauce mixture over the kale leaves. Using your hands, massage the chocolate mixture into the kale leaves until each one is evenly coated. Fold in the coconut flakes and hemp seeds.

Transfer the coated kale to the cookie sheets and bake about 20 minutes. Remove the cookie sheet, flip the kale leaves and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes. Watch them very closely, as they may burn quickly if left in the oven a few moments too long. Remove the kale chips from the oven when crispy. Allow to cool a bit, then serve.

Notes

Cook's Note: If you have a dehydrator, you can transfer the chocolate covered kale to two Teflex-lined dehydrator sheets and dehydrate at 115 degrees F for about 5 hours. Then flip the kale chips or just shake them around and dehydrate them until very crispy, another 4 to 5 hours.

    I don't care whether this is healthy or not, it's freaking fantastic! We finished this in one sitting-- it was a gloriously decadent dessert.

    I think people need to step back and really digest the meaning of healthy. This recipe in whole contains over 160 grams of carbs, and over 60 grams of fat. Probably why they don't disclose the nutritional information. That's 10-15+ grams of fat, and 27-40+ grams of carbs per serving. That is a very high amount of fat and carbs, for a "healthy" snack.

    That, and this show uses Agave Nectar, which is just as bad for you as Corn Syrup, or regular sugar. Pure Maple, or raw Honey are much healthier for you, with far more nutritional benefits.

    I need more stars!!! This recipe is to die for! My son, who really DISTATES green, munch on these without knowing there was kale underneath all that chocolate heaven. If you really do want to have a healthy snack, satisfying and deliciously sweet, this is it!!!
