Cinnamon-Sugar Kale Chips (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free)

Looking for a healthy snack that satisfies your sweet tooth? Look no further than these delicate cinnamon-sugar kale chips. As you all know, kale chips have become quite popular over the past couple years. I still make them all the time. I haven’t gotten sick of them yet. I am in my last semester of graduate school right now (yay!) so I am always on the look out for something I can snack on while I study. Normally that little afternoon snack is something salty, but this time I went to the sweet side. I love the way the subtle flavor of the palm sugar really shines with the coconut oil and the touch of nutmeg. It’s definitely a keeper. Stay tuned for a mouthwatering chocolate peanut butter brownie recipe! Oh yes… that’s right.

• 1 small bunch dinosaur kale
• 1 tablespoon coconut oil
• pinch salt
• pinch nutmeg
• 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl combine melted coconut oil, sugar and seasoning, whisk to combine. Dip the washed, trimmed and dried kale on both sides in the bowl of sugar mixture. Shake off excess and place in an even layer on cookie sheet. You will probably need to cook in batches. Must be ½ inch apart on cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until kale chips appear shriveled and crisp. Serve right away.
