Baked Kale Chips

My son LOVES kale chips.  It’s a good thing these are so simple to make!  You will be HOOKED after you try them for the first time.  My son asks for them every time he sees kale on sale at the grocery store.

If you want to try to make your own kale chips, you’re in luck….Organic Kale is on sale this week at Ralph’s stores for $0.99 each this week!  Make sure you head on down and pick some up!  Kale is now one of my vegetables.  It is rich in nutrients and vitamins, like beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and calcium.

Other ways you can use kale:

  • Salads
  • Smoothies
  • Sautéed

Below is my recipe for Baked Kale Chips.

Baked Kale Chips

Prep Time:  10 minutes  |  Cook Time:  10 minutes | Servings:  6 (approx….although my son has been known to eat the entire batch on his own 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder (optional – we love garlic, so I added this to the mix)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a non-insulated cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. With a knife, kitchen shears, or just your hands carefully remove the leaves from the thick stems and tear into bite size pieces. (Great for the kids to help out!  My son handles this job using his hands.)
  3. Wash and thoroughly dry kale with a salad spinner.
  4. Drizzle kale with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.
  5. Bake until the edges brown but are not burnt, about 10-15 minutes depending on your oven.
  6. Wait until they cool down a bit…if you can 🙂 and enjoy.  One time my son finished half of the kale chips off the cookie sheet before I could take them off!
  7. Store in an air-tight container for about 2-3 days…if they even last that long.
