Crispy Kale Chips are one of my kids’ favorite snacks and subsequently one of mine as well. They are healthy, delicious and very easy to customize to your taste/mood. Snacking is one of the hardest times to eat clean which is why it is important to keep those healthy snacks coming.

Large Bowl
Sheet Tray with Parchment Paper

1 Bunch Curly Kale, cleaned, dried and ripped off stem into small pieces.
1T Olive Oil
Pinch Salt
Optional: Your favorite spice blend, lemon, shredded hard cheese of your choice.

1. Preheat oven to 350*. Place kale in large bowl and pour over 1T olive oil. Toss the kale with your hands, rubbing the oil into the kale, add a pinch of salt and continue tossing.
2. Place 1/2 on sheet pan in a single layer and place in oven for 10-20 minutes, tossing occasionally. Remove when crisp, season to taste with more salt if desired or spices, squeeze of lemon or cheese of your choice. I usually use one sheet tray and make 2 batches, if you are in a time crunch/or have the oven space use 2 sheet trays.

I hope you try this and that you and your kids love it as much as we do! If you have any great flavor combinations that we could try please comment below!

Happy snacking!
