I love to make kale chips every now and then for a nice snack. I think this probably goes without saying, but these are 100 times healthier than potato chips. They contain more beneficial vitamins (like K, A and C), and kale has been linked to lowering five different types of cancers (colon, breast, bladder, prostate and ovary). They also contain fewer calories and fat than potato chips. Plus, these are homemade, so they’re not processed.
2 bunches of organic kale (I used green, since it was a little cheaper)
paprika (regular or smoked)
chili powder (only if you use regular paprika, not smoked)
sea salt, black pepper, or crushed red pepper flakes
Tear the kale off the stem in medium-sized pieces. Place all the kale pieces in a bowl and mix in olive oil and all of the spices. Toss the kale in olive oil. There is no exact measurement for the spices, but I used roughly around 1/4 tsp. for most of the spices. After the kale as been fully mixed, place on a baking sheet and spread them out. I had to use one full baking sheet and one small one. You want to make sure all of the kale as enough space on the sheet, otherwise the kale will hold in all of the olive oil, and you won’t have that crispy taste. Next, place the baking sheets in the oven at 350 for 20 minutes or until the kale starts to wilt and crisp. Make sure you turn the kale occasionally, so no oil is being held.
