Crispy Kale Chips

Monster Kale Chips - PhotoJohn, Chris and I have been loving snacking on Kale Chips and we thought it would be fun to dress them up for Halloween!   These crispy kale chips come together in less than 30 minutes that make for an easy nutrient packed simple snack!

They are super simple to make!

Tips for Crispy Kale Chips

  1. Make sure to take the stems off first, I do them by hand but you can buy this handy tool.  The stems are tough to chew through in salads and don’t work well for the chips, but can be used as a crunch when sautéed in a stir fry.

2. You can use one pan if you want but I find when you crowd them onto one pan they do not cook as evenly and some may burn.

3. But if don’t want to dirty 2 pans and you use only use 1 pan make sure toss and stir kale around midway through the baking to help with even baking.

4.  You can use any kale we just prefer the heartiness to laminato kale and find it easier to work with.  It is a little thicker so it doesn’t burn as easy in my opinion.  

5. The amount of olive oil and salt varies depending on how big the bunches are – I find the bunch size depends on the store and brand.
