Kale Chips- A Healthy Alternative (Seriously) to Potato Chips

Okay, okay, I know there are a million blog posts out there about Kale Chips and how to make them, but I HAD to. After discovering for myself just how EASY these are to make, I had to share with the world. Even better... my 16-month-old is CRAZY for them. If I can get her to eat kale and beg for more, then there must be something worth sharing- yes? YES!

Fresh Kale

STEP 1: Separate leaves from stem. Discard stem.

STEP 2: Tear leaves into 2 in. (approx.) pieces.

STEP 3: Line baking sheet with leafy pieces and sprinkle 1-2 tsp of cooking oil on leaves. (I lined my baking sheet with parchment paper to make clean-up quick and easy.) Toss so all pieces are covered. [Note: Some of my pieces in this pic were too small. They shrink A LOT!]

STEP 4: Bake in oven at 375F for 20-25 mins.

STEP 5: Optional- Place chips on paper towel to soak up any extra oil.  Sprinkle salt or parmesan or other flavorings on chips and toss.

Easy peasy! 

Happy snacking!!!
