Finding healthy yet delicious snacks when you are on the go is so important to maintaining both your physical health and your emotional well-being. If you are eating unhealthy food on a regular basis you may find it difficult to get energized and stay upbeat while you go about your day. Preparing snacks ahead of time is a great way to avoid the dilemma of what to eat when you are at home or in the office. Eating healthy is one of the components when it comes to keeping your mind and your body happy. Kale chips are an excellent source of unsaturated fat and contain zero cholesterol which means if you are worried that you will be eating a high-calorie fatty snack you don’t need to be. But homemade kale chips can be soggy which makes a lot of people opt not to make them. After a whole lot of testing, we have perfected a recipe that makes these chips perfectly crispy.
1 Bunch of Kale
1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon of Salt
First, you will need to turn your oven on and let it heat until it reaches 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Then you need to grab a large cookie sheet and line it with parchment paper as you do not want your kale to stick to the pan which will not make for very tasty chips.
Second, kale can have a bit of a bitter taste to it. To eliminate this taste there are two things you need to do, just remember to wash and dry it first. You will need to remove the stems from each kale leaf as you do not want to eat these. They do not make for very nice tasting chips or even resemble chips if cooked. Next, you will want to squeeze the leaves a bit as this released the bitter flavor. Once you have done this you can tear the kale leaves into medium-sized pieces or those that make for the size of chip you want to eat. If they are too large then they may be a bit crumbly which can make for a bit of a mess when eating. Bite-sized is the best.
Lastly, place the bite-sized pieces on top of the parchment paper and drizzle them with the olive oil. The final touch is to sprinkle the salt over top to give them a bit of an added flavor. Let them bake until the edges turn brown and they are crisp to the touch. Take them out, let them cool a bit and enjoy!
