    I went to a friend’s house about a month ago & she opened up a bag of chocolate kale chips for me to try. They were crazy sweet & so yummy … I felt like I was eating a cookie! And then I had a rawsome brunch with my friend Kristel of The Raw Living Collective & we each made a few recipes from Amber Shea Ford’s fantastic new book, “Practically Raw,” (I will review it soon … I want to try a few more recipes first) and one of the recipes was Chocolate Kale Chips. They were to LIVE for! I couldn’t resist coming up with my own twist on this decadent sweet chip. Here you have it, the GGR version:

    Brownie Batter Kale Chips
    1 bunch of kale, de-stemmed & broken into pieces
    1/2 cup of cashews, soaked 1-2 hours
    4-5 pitted medjool dates
    1/4 cup agave or maple syrup
    1/4 cup of chia seeds
    1/4 cup of cacao or carob powder

    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    3/4-1.5 cups of water
    2 pinches of sea salt
    Place the kale in a large mixing bowl & set aside. Place all remaining ingredients in the blender & blend until thick and creamy. Scoop mixture out onto kale & vigorously massage the batter mix into the kale to coat each leaf. Place kale on 2 teflex sheets, spreading out to allow for good drying. Dehydrate kale at 115 for 10-12 hours until crispy! Eat up … and try to share.
