Peanut and Orange Kale Chips

Let me begin by saying the flavour combination of the peanut and orange dressing will blow you away. I’ve come across a few spicy peanut recipes, but I’m not one for spice so I decided to improvise. Make sure if you do decided to make the peanut and orange kale chips to prepare a little extra.. as I ate almost the whole bunch in one sitting. The crunchy organic peanut butter adds for an unique texture; I can’t even imagine how delicious these guys would be in an actually dehydrator. Either way I’ll be making them again, I hope you enjoy them just as much as I did!photo 3

Peanut and Orange Kale Chips
  • 2 bunches kale
  • 2 large tbsp organic crunchy peanut butter (or any savory nut butter)
  • 1 Tb. olive oil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Wash the kale and dry thoroughly with paper towels. Pull the leaves off the center ribs in large pieces, and pile on a baking sheet. Discard the ribs.
  2. In a small bowl mix the nut butter, oil, garlic, salt & pepper, and orange juice. Pour over the kale. Use your hands to massage the kale leaves until each one is evenly coated with the spice mixture.
  3. Lay the kale leaves out flat on baking sheets. Do not overlap and work in batches if necessary. Bake for 10-11 minutes until crisp, but still green. Cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving. If some kale chips are still a little flimsy or damp, remove the crisp chips and place the damp chips back in the oven for a few more minutes. Store in an air-tight container.
