Health Snacks


We love us some Kale Chips at the YoungBaer household.  It is definitely the most requested food item by the Hubs, with PB & J coming in at a close 2nd.  Almost everyday I hear “are you making kale chips!?”  I think we need to start growing our own kale since we go through so much of it between the chips, salads, and juicing.  But hey, the recipe is super easy to make and a satisfying healthy snack.  So here ya go…..

Kale Chip Pic Stitch



1 head of Kale

1-2 TBSP Olive Oil

dash of Cayenne Pepper

3 dashes of Pepper

a few sprinkles of Sea Salt

*sorry my measurements aren’t exact but you have to get a feel for how much kale you make and how spicy and seasoned you like them.  The olive oil should lightly coat the leaves, but not douse them.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Place olive oil and seasoning in a large bowl

Pull kale leaves off of branches and rip into small/medium pieces, place pieces on a paper towel

Use paper towel to pat dry and remove moisture from kale as you do not want soggy chips

Toss leaves in bowl and mix around with your hands till all leaves are coated

Place on baking sheet and in oven

Cook for 20-25 minutes depending on how much kale or how quickly your oven cooks.  Half way through pull kale out and mix around in the baking sheet

Enjoy!  And you will be surprised at how addicting these are!

I Love Kale,
