Kale Chips

If you want a salty crunchy snack, but are attempting to maintain a low-carb diet, these are for you. It is extremely easy and tasty.

Pre-heat the oven to 25 degrees Fahrenheit.

Combine kale leaves with olive oil, salt, pepper, and whatever spices you like. The great thing about these chips (as is the case with all chips), is that you can experiment with different flavors. If you like garlic, add some garlic powder, if you like spice, add some cayenne pepper. Regardless, the kale is delicious even on its own.

Once you have mixed the kale with your seasoning, spread it out on a baking tray and place it into the oven.

Let the kale bake for about twenty minutes and then turn your oven to broil to get it extra crispy. Voila! Extremely easy to make and delicious to eat – Kale Chips!
