After School Snacks: Crunchy Kale Chips

Now, for something special thisLEAP DAY: Hope you eat these more often than every 4 years!

Really trying to eat healthier? Looking for a fantastic, quick & easy after-school snack? Kale chips are definitely the way to go then.

This bitter green is pretty nasty when eaten raw, but toss it with some olive oil and kosher salt then bake in the oven...    You'll never be eating potato chips again.

This is THE perfect, healthy, deeee-lish snack. So crispy and the perfect sprinkle of salt= happy taste buds.

WARNING: at first, the aftertaste may not be your favorite. (Just eat a breathmint)
The ingredients are simple:
1 bunch kale
drizzle of olive or canola oil
kosher salt to taste

Preheat oven to 350. Meanwhile, rinse your bunch of kale

Dry the kale with papertowel or salad spinner

I tried it raw. Didn't like it much.

Cut the stems & spines off the kale leaves

After all spines and stems are removed, tear the leaves into bite-sized pieces (chips)

Put kale chips in a bowl & toss with a drizzle of canola or olive oil

Lay in a single layer on a cookie sheet, then bake at 350 for 12 min or so. Don't let them get too brown, because then they get bitter.

After baking in the oven, sprinkle with kosher salt

and ENJOY your CRUNCHY GOOD Snack!  We love the loud crunch it makes! We polished off the whole batch in 5 minutes.

Crunchy Simple Good
