Recipe Challenge Day 2: The Ultimate Kale Chips

Let’s just say I had to go to the store and buy 4 more hand-fulls of Kale in order to do this recipe. I ate the first batch, my husband ate the second and my kids ate the third and fourth before they all gave me a pouting frown and begging whine for more. This is by far the single most amazing recipe of all times and it’s done in under 15 minutes. Not only that it’s healthy for you!  What is it?
 Kale Chips.

No I am not joking in any way, my family dove into this snack , literally face to the bowl fighting over the last ones. I didn’t see this coming in anyway but be warned you may have to buy extra Kale because you can’t get enough! My kids told me to plant extra kale in the garden, and I have a feeling I’ll be making these very often from now on. I don’t mind one bit, Kale packs a healthy punch check out the health benefits-

  •  high in iron. 
  •  high in Vitamin K. 
  •  filled with  antioxidants.
  •  is a great anti-inflammatory food
  •  Eating more kale can help lower cholesterol levels.
  •  high in Vitamin A.
  •  high in Vitamin C. 
  •  high in calcium.
Did you know so much was in this leafy green?  On to the recipe! 

Kale – Wash the kale then break it up into pieces but not too small
Half of a Lemon
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 Tsp Paprika
1/2 Tsp Garlic Powder

Optional other seasonings to jazz it up with instead of Paprika
* Chili Powder
* Chipotle powder
* Curry
* Cheyenne pepper


Set the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lay down all the broken kale. Squeeze the lemon over the pieces then drizzle with oil. Your pick of seasonings, you can really choose whatever you like, Chili Powder won in the end with the family though they loved it. Sprinkle the seasonings garlic powder salt and pepper over the kale. Toss it around on the sheet getting everything covered. Make sure you lay everything flat before you bake. Bake for about 10 minutes, You want a few pieces to be slightly brown but take it out as soon as the edges look cooked.
Take them out place on plate or in a bowl and have at it. Perfect for snacking!

    I have had a few friends rave about kale chips but I never gave it a go. I will definately be trying this; I love chips and this seems a bit healthier.

    I have tried and tried to like kale and can not seem to do it. I love it in shakes where I can cover the flavor. I have a friend that loves making kale chips so I will share this with her.

    Your recipe is a different than most I've seen but I recently found Kale Chips not too long ago. I tried them myself and wondered what took me so long to try this. I'm going to be trying your recipe as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Ohh I've never thought of making this but it looks like an ideal healthy snack for those moments when you just need something crunchy. Thanks for sharing!

    Kale chips sounds interesting, my hubby made a salad a while ago, we all liked it except him. I was telling him how Kale is beneficial and good for health. May be he will like chips more than salad.

    I've never had kale but a few friends of mine absolutely love it. I don't eat enough leafy greens, actually I don't think I eat any at all & I know I need to. I should try this, especially because of all the health benefits.
