Krazy Good Kale Chips!

 

Krazy Good Kale Chips!

It’s no secret we love kale chips around this neck of the woods. It’s my snack of choice, I just don’t usually have them on hand when I really want them. I never have any extra on hand because they are always gone at our house in minutes!

I am trying to make more meals and snacks in bulk these days to have food on hand for school lunches, afternoon snacks, nighttime munchies, you name it!

I’ve been playing around with the standard kale chip recipe and spicing it up over the past few months with different seasonings and toppings. The sauce on top of the kale is delicious and be warned you won’t be able to eat just one  or two “chips!” Good thing there’s nothing to worry about 🙂

Yesterday, my daughter and I made Kale Chips. Wow-what a healthy treat! Emma ate all of them (equivalent to an entire bunch of kale) in one sitting! For those of you interested in making a very healthy snack at home, the recipe is below.
Baked Kale Chips
1bunch kale
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (I use Herbamare)
Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put wax paper on a cookie sheet.
Use kitchen shears or a knife to remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear the leaves into small pieces. Thoroughly wash and dry the kale. Drizzle olive oil on the kale and then sprinkle with salt.
Bake approximately 10-15 minutes, until the edges are brown but not burnt. Enjoy!
