Smoked Paprika and Orange Kale Chips

13 Jun

BeFunky_IMG_3567.jpgThe name says it all actually, no need to write a recipe. Okay I’ll write something. Just to fill out this page.

Kale chips became such a popular snack these days. Or maybe just in NYC? I don’t know. But you should know that they are incredibly quick and easy to make at home. Here is how:

 

 

4 cups of kale (the leafy parts, so cut off the stems)

2,5 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon fresh orange zest

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

1/8 teaspoon ground cumin (optional)

pinch of salt

 

Preheat your oven to 350 °F. Prepare your tray with parchment paper or aluminum foil on it.

Cut off the stems of the kale and rip apart in order to make big chunks of the leaves and wash them. Make sure they are completely dry. That way your chips will be crunchy.

In a small bowl combine the rest of the ingredients and toss it in the kale. Coat every single chunk with the olive oil mixture.

You have to put them as a single layer on the tray. This means it is going to be a few batches you keep putting in the oven and taking out. Bake your first single layer kale batch for 8 minutes. If they’re not crunchy you can put them back in the oven for another minute but you need be careful because they get burnt so easily. Repeat it till you’re done with all of them.

Protein Pancakes

30 May

BeFunky_IMG_3693.jpgI looooove pancakes. You know I love pancakes. The whole world knows I love pancakes. I’m constantly trying to find a way to make pancakes that are on the healthier side but one challenge with that is it usually doesn’t taste, look, or feel like pancakes. Well this recipe is actually one of the best when it comes to gluten free pancakes. Of course you can use just regular oat flour if you can tolerate a little bit of gluten.

This was my post workout meal the other day and I highly recommend you make it.

Ingredients

1 scoop (30 g) protein powder (I used banana cream flavored but you can use any kind)

1/3 cup gluten-free oat flour

3 tablespoons coconut flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce

2 egg whites

1/2 cup almond milk

BeFunky_IMG_3697.jpgCombine everything in a bowl, whisking until everything is well combined. Spoon the batter onto a hot pan and cook them as pancakes.

I poured some grape molasses on it, as well as peanut butter and sugar free jelly.
