Baked Kale Chips
1 bunch of kale
1 tablespoon grapeseed oil
sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Wash and dry the kale. Cut the kale into bite size pieces, removing the thick stalks. Pile the pieces of kale onto your baking sheet. Drizzle with the grapeseed oil and sprinkle with sea salt, pepper, and garlic to taste. Mix the kale with your hands, making sure the oil and flavorings are evenly distributed. Spread the kale on the baking sheet without overlapping the pieces of kale. Bake for 15 minutes.
The kale chips are crispy just like regular potato chips and are honestly just as delicious. Kelli's kids really enjoy the chips, and she can barely take them off the baking sheet before they are all gone.
Kale, as a member of the cabbage family, contains anti-cancer properties and is a great source of vitamins C and B6, carotenes, and manganese while also providing fiber, iron, calcium, and vitamins B1, B2, and E. We love this recipe because it healthily satisfies salty cravings without the guilt! (source: www.everynutrient.com)
