Kale Chips

One of my favorite, healthy snacks is kale chips! However, at six to eight dollars a bag….not exactly affordable right?? Wrong!! They are super easy and affordable to make!  I prefer the organic…and at under two dollars a bunch it is much more cost effective than buying a bag of kale chips in the store.

Kale is considered a super food…so this yummy snack is also really good for you. It is high in antioxidants Vitamins A, C and K. It is also high in fiber, which most of us need more of anyway. So this is one snack you need not feel guilty about!!

Begin by preheating the oven to 375*.

While the oven is preheating, wash and dry two bunches of kale well. I use my salad spinner and then pat dry with paper towels as well.

Remove the thick stems and rough chop.

In a large mixing bowl, toss the kale with two tablespoons or so of extra virgin olive oil and coarse ground sea salt.

Spread the kale in  a single layer on a shallow baking sheet. Bake in the oven twenty to thirty minutes or until nice and crispy.

Allow to cool, and snack away guilt free!!
