Who knew that it was so easy to make your own kale chips? I sure didn’t until my sister made them with me one day. It just wasn’t something I thought about making myself yet, although I regularly purchase a pack from my local grocery store.
Recently, I had a bunch of kale in the refrigerator that were turning soft and I didn’t want to throw them away. Because, who likes to waste money? I sure don’t and I caught it just before it turned bad. And since I’m trying to incorporate more healthy snacks into my lifestyle, I thought this would be a perfect time to make homemade kale chips.
Check the recipe down below. If you try them, I bet you’ll be very proud of yourself. 🙂
Peace and Love!
Homemade Kale Chips
1 bunch of fresh kale
2 tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp Himalayan salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp. nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 smoked paprika
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F.
- Rinse the kale carefully and remove from all stems.
- Lay kale flat on a few sheets of paper towels and pat each piece dry. Take your time doing this, because any water left on the leaves will prevent it from becoming crispy.
- Massage oil into the kale (take your time here as well to make sure it is completely covered) and add spices.
- Toss and lay flat on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, without overlapping each other.
- Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and toss kale around the pan. Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until crispy.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
