Kale Chips

When you're longing for the nearest bag of potato chips, Kale Chips are a great nutritious alternative that will keep your Paleo Diet on track! They are light, crispy, and more tasty after each bite. They'll have you & the kids singing, "Can't stop eatin' them kale chips!"

Kale is packed with vitamins A & C and provides a decent amount of calcium and iron too! Check out the complete nutrition facts for cooked kale, here.

Here's how you make them:

  • Wash and dry your kale thoroughly (Drying is VERY important.  If it's not dry, it will steam and turn brown rather than stay a nice bright crispy green).   
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Break kale into larger than bite-size pieces, removing the large stems (It will shrink when you bake it).
  • Toss in extra virgin olive oil.
  • Lay them in one layer on a baking sheet
  • Sprinkle very lightly with sea salt
  • Bake for approximately 8-10 minutes (each oven is different so keep a close eye on them the first time you make them).
I plan to try making beet chips and parsnip chips in the near future, so stay tuned!!
