Ok-I have to follow up my posting for Overnight Cinnamon Rolls with something good for you. I mean, believe me, the cinnamon rolls are good for the soul but good for the waistline…sorry! These are actually good for you and taste really good too.
I was never a believer in these. When I would hear people say, “oh they taste just like potato chips!” I was never sold. I mean, I like leafy greens, I do, but to say that they can taste like a potato chip? I wish. I decided to try them. My kids were skeptical as well. My oldest tried one right away, and my middle child needed a bit more persuasion. The baby just gobbled it up happily and reached for more. I think you will like them too! I am not going to lie and say that they taste like a potato chip, but they are crunchy, salty and very snackable. I think you will be pleasantly surprised. My kids ate them and I admit, I felt really good about it! I mean, they are vegetable lovers, but leafy greens is one thing I can never really sell to them. That is why I do what any other self respecting parent would do when their kids won’t eat something.
Don’t tell me you haven’t done it too! Just like my green smoothie recipe you can find in the recipe index, these baked chips are very good at disguising the fact that they are very good for you!
Baked Kale Chips
1 bunch of kale, rinsed, dried thoroughly , and cut into small chip size pieces
Sea Salt or Seasoned Salt
Place kale chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. If you have an oil mister, spray chips until thoroughly coated with olive oil. (If not, toss chips with a few tablespoons of olive oil in a bowl before placing them on parchment lined baking sheet). Sprinkle generously with sea salt.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until chips are lightly browned and crispy. Let cool and serve! (The crispier, the better-but make sure they do not burn. You may want to check them a few times to make sure they are not baking too long!)
