How to Make My Healthy and Yummy Snack Discovery: Kale Chips
Looks can be deceiving. Just ask my kids. They took one look at my tray of freshly made kale chips yesterday and turned up their noses immediately. However, after a bit of determined persuasion, they each tried a small bite and admitted that they were good.
After being frustrated by the incredible amount of unhealthy snacks for kids available in the grocery store, and very few healthy ones, I took matters into my own hands after hearing a friend talk about how their kids love kale chips. By golly, I was going to make them a healthy snack that they would love! So I bought a beautiful bunch of kale at the Oneonta Farmer’s Market and you wouldn’t believe it is how easy to make these.
Here’s what you need:
a bunch of kale
olive oil (enough to coat all your kale)
seasoning of your choice: salt, pepper, garlic salt, etc.
1. Strip the leaves off of each piece of kale into easy to eat sized pieces. When done with that, put it all in a bowl and toss with some olive oil–just enough to coat all the pieces.
2. Lay out all the kale pieces on a cookie sheet so that they aren’t overlapping.
Season with salt and pepper or garlic salt, or whatever your favorite seasoning might be. I like garlic salt with a little pepper.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 12-14 minutes.
4.Enjoy the light crispy treat you created.
