Kale Chips

kale chips

Potato chips are delicious, but come along with excess baggage like empty calories and artificial ingredients. This kale chip recipe is a clean way to satisfy salty cravings for healthy snacking! This recipe is so easy and yields perfect no-fail sea salt and garlic kale chips. Kale chips can be tricky to get right, but luckily we hold the secret - The trick to is to thoroughly dry the kale after rinsing (if there's any moisture left on the leaves you'll end up with soggy kale chips), then to massage only the tiniest bit of olive oil into every crack and crevice of each and every kale leaf. This combination yields perfectly crunchy kale chips every time!

Arrange the pieces of kale on an unlined baking sheet. Drizzle the olive oil as evenly over the kale as possible. Using your hands, gently massage the oil into the kale leaves, making sure to massage the oil well into all the folds and onto the entire surface of each of the kale leaves. At first it may not seem that 2 teaspoons of oil will be enough but adding more oil will only add too much moisture. If you find you need a tiny bit more oil, add it one drop at a time.
