Crunchy Kale Chips & Coffee Bliss Balls – A Post Workout Treat

Cccrrrunchy Kale Chips

They say that crunchy food makes the brain happy – Like a lovely fresh stick of celery, a great big green or red apple, a bag of crisps??? Here’s my Air Fryer kale chip recipe

What do you need…

A big bunch of kale, tblsp of coconut oil and ½ tspn of salt

How do you do it…

Melt the coconut oil in a pan – You may not need to do this where you are but in Melbourne it’s cold right now – Really REALLY cold but I must stop whinging about the cold #britslovetotalkweather

  

Pour the melted oil and salt into the roughly chopped and de-veined kale

(I do this with scissors soooooo easy)

     

Give it all a good massage – I like this bit a lot it feels so lovely

I like my kale chips with just salt but you could use these too if you have them

Pop the kale & co into the Air Fryer on 180 (160 works well too) for 5 mins

You can also layer the kale on a grill pan and put in the oven on 160C for 15-20 mins

Keep checking on them they’re not half as tasty when they’re burnt!

     

Open the drawer give the contents a shake and pop it in for another 1-3 mins – Keep an eye on them

              

Et Voila!!!! A bowl of delicious crunchy kale chips

NB The kale chips do shrink but I got stuck into these and then remembered the photo! Ooh YUM

“They were meant to be mocha but I forgot the chocolate”

Coffee Bliss balls

These are just yummy, even if I did miss the chocolate bit!

So what do you need….

2 cups of nuts and seeds – I used cashews, walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and brazil nuts

What was in the freezer – Nuts stay nice & crunchy if you keep them in the freezer.

  

1 cup of shredded coconut & 2 cups of pitted medjool dates

    

 ½ teaspoon of celtic salt

2 tablespoons of coffee (I used 3 but the balls were a bit softer than I prefer) & 1 teaspoon of vanilla

     

How you do it….

Put all the ingredients in a blender and blitiz until it looked like this

I’m a chronic over blender this could’ve been blended less

Take a spoonful, roll it into a ball, roll it in coconut

        

This recipe made 33 big marble sized balls.

Put in the fridge or freezer for an hour or so – If you can resist.

ENJOY & RECOVER!!
