Garlicky Kale Chips

We easily eat garlicky kale chips 2-3 times a week.  The chance that I’ve made these kale chips for friends is very, very likely.  I like to share the goodness with all!

Lately my moms garden has been booming with kale (fantastic since mine failed… waa waa waaaaah ), so we’ve been reaping the benefits of her labor with even more kale in the house.  No problem with that here.

Kale Wins

Kale is 100% my favorite dark leafy green.  I love it raw, I love it cook, I love it crunchy and munchy.  Kale is packed with vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, vitamin B6, fiber, while also being a good source of calcium, potassium and iron along with many more vitamins and minerals (source).  It’s a nutrition POWERHOUSE.

Garlicky Kale Chips

Recipe can easily be doubled (and baked on 2 sheets) or halved for a smaller amount

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch kale, leaves removed from the stems and ripped into pieces
  • 2 tsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic granules
  • 1/4 tsp pepper

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F.  Spread kale pieces onto a large, rimmed baking sheet (mine goes up about 2 inches on the side to fit more kale).  Pour avocado oil over the kale and massage into each kale piece.  Sprinkle sea salt, garlic granules and pepper over the kale and toss to coat each piece.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir kale chips.  Continue baking another 10 minutes, then stir again.  Keep baking and checking the kale chips every 5 minutes and stirring until the kale is no longer wet and all the pieces are crispy and beginning to get golden brown.  If your pan is really full, this process may take longer, but generally anticipate 30-40 minutes of baking time.

Where are you on the kale scale?  Can’t get enough, or just need to find the right recipe?? 😉

Happy munching!
