Apple Cinnamon Kale Chips


Really. There are really never enough ways to make kale chips. I have tried them all and continue to because, quite frankly, aside from blending it up in smoothie, there is really no better way to get this super great green in.

Last Saturday- the husband and I hit up the movies. Given my history with Crohn‘s- the one food I would never dare try again is popped corn. Those scratchy, sharp, digestibly impossible shards of corn kernal will rip your insides to bits. Think of paper cuts!

For this reason and many others (um… GMO corn, weird butter-like coating, iodized salt to name a few), I would never touch movie popcorn. Instead- I always bring our own movie snacks and kale chips is often the winner.

I’ve tried many a kale chip in my day. See!

Now it was time to depart from the savoury and try a little sweet on for size. After I ate 3 heads worth of kale (and about three litres worth of water to compensate), I’d say I have a winner here with these apple cinnamon kale chips!

  • Yield: 6-8 Servings 1x


Departing my love for savoury for these Apple Cinnamon Nut-Free Kale Chips has to be one of the greatest decisions I’ve made as of late.


  • 1 head of kale
  • 1/2 cup sesame seeds or tahini
  • 1 whole apple + 1 apple grated or
  • Spiralled on your spiral slicer
  • 1/4 cup coconut nectar
  • 1/2 water or more in order to blend smooth
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of sea salt


  1. Wash, de-stem and dry your kale leaves and tear them into pieces- about the twice the size of bite size.
  2. In a blender combine whole apple, cut into cubes, coconut nectar, water, cinnamon and sea salt. Blend until smooth.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, toss together kale, spiral sliced/grated apple, and chip coating until evening distributed.
  4. Lay out on dehydrator trays and dry for 8 hrs at 118 or until crisp.
  5. Allow to cool and then store in an airtight container- or just eat straight away.

    Looks yummy! I love kale chips. Actually, my kids and I fight over them they are so good:) I’ve got some kale in my fridge and need to whip some up myself!

    I’ve tried a number of kale chip recipes but just couldn’t jump on the bandwagon. I usually make kale salads or kale/spinach smoothies. Maybe I’ll give this recipe a try and be converted?!?!
