I’ve made peanut-butter and jelly collard green wraps before and I actually really liked the combo of the creamy peanut butter, sweet jelly and crunchy collard leaf so I thought…why not coat some kale and bake it? Yum! The results= crunchy kale chips with just a hint of peanut butter and jelly flavor. I suggest doubling the ingredients for a more intense flavor– the reason I didn’t was because I knew it would be me and only me consuming the entire tray in one sitting and I didn’t think it was a good idea to eat a half cup of peanut butter at once so I held back with it. 🙂
Peanut Butter and Jelly Kale Chips
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1/4 cup peanut butter
- 1 tablespoon jelly
- 2 tablespoons water
- sea salt to taste
- Preheat the oven to 300.
- Rinse the kale and break off bite-size pieces from the middle stem. Compost (or eat!) the stem. Place pieces in a large mixing bowl.
- Whisk together the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl.
- Coat the kale pieces with the wet mixture using a massaging technique with your fingers.
- Spread the coated kale onto a baking sheet and bake for about ten minutes.
- Check for any crispy ones, eat ’em & stir the kale around a bit and bake for another ten.
- The full baking time will depend on how thick they were coated– check them every five minutes until crisp. If there are a few gooey ones in there still, they are good too!
Here’s what they look like before baking:
