Sweet & Spicy Cinnamon Kale Chips

Hi Everyone! Kathy here! I’m so geared up for spring! I’ve kicked up my workout routine and intensity  and cleaned up my diet.  Lots of salads, juice and fruit.  The only problem is that I still have a major sweet tooth to fight.

I tried the chocolate kale chips I found at Whole Foods to satisfy my sweet tooth and I was not impressed! I started thinking – what if I replaced the salt and olive oil in my regular recipe with cinnamon, sugar, and coconut oil.  Delish!!! A total success!

Now the only problem I have is eating too many!

Sweet Cinnamon Kale Chips

  • 1 head of kale (your preference)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut palm sugar
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Optional – I love spice so I added a couple of shakes of cayenne! The sweet, spicy and crunch of the kale is sooo good!

 

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Wash and dry the kale and tear into pieces.

3. Toss all the ingredients in a bowl until coated. Spread the kale pieces onto the baking sheet.

4. Bake 9 to 11 minutes, tossing the kale periodically, until crisp. Remove from oven and let cool 10 to 15 minutes.

5. Enjoy!
