Healthy Chips! Yes it is possible: Kale Chips

IMG_4571

I have to admit, I love crispy, salty potato chips. But I know as well as anyone how much fat and “bad” oils they contain, so they are eaten very very sparingly. However I don’t want to give up that crispy, salty, perfect snack. So instead I eat Kale Chips. They are super healthy, ready in minutes and really do the job when you have that snack like craving.

Plus Kale is fat-free! High in Fiber, Iron, Calcium, Vitamins A, K and C and it’s an anti-inflammatory food.

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch kale, washed
  • 1 Tbsp of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • sprinkle of good quality Sea Salt
  • Fresh Cracked Pepper

Feel free to get creative and add spices to your Kale Chips, for example some garlic powder or chili powder.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F.
  2. Wash kale and cut stems off. Cut into chip size pieces.
  3. In a large boil add kale, olive oil and salt and pepper. Toss around to coat the kale.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and place kale on top, laying flat, try not to over lap.
  5. Bake for about 10-15 min. Keeping an eye on them so they don’t burn.
  6. Remove from oven and once cool, place in a bowl and try not to eat all in one sitting…but, hey, they’re so good for you its ok if you do! 🙂
