In my quest for healthy alternatives for snacks and sweets, I took a stab at making kale chips. I’m happy to say they were de-li-cious. You can pretty much make them in any flavor with spices you have on hand. They take only ten minutes to make and have quickly become a favorite midday snacks. If you’re looking for a sweet option to counter this savory treat, check out the one minute chocolate chip cookie and the no-bake coconut snowballs (gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan).
Grab a bunch of kale and let’s get started…
1 Bunch of kale
1 tbsp olive oil
Cut out the center rib of the kale, or just tear the leaves off.
This is the point in which you’ll also add your seasonings. I made one batch with sea salt and garlic powder sprinkled on top, and another with just 2 tsp of soy sauce mixed in with the oil. Experiment to find the flavor you love. I’ve heard Sriracha mixed in with olive oil can be fantastic too.
Place on a baking sheet in the oven at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10-12 minutes. The time may vary depending on your oven. I would take a peek at them at about eight minutes to see how they are coming along. Allow to cool and enjoy!
Use your leftover kale to make a Kale, Peach, and Roasted Almond Salad.
