Best Ever Kale Chips

Kale chips get a bad rap. Probably because the generic method of preparing them entails burning them until they're black and then calling them "crispy chips." Charred kale isn't my favorite thing, so I developed these to, at long last, satisfy my crunchy kale craving. These kale chips are SO much more than your standard "crunchy" (read: black)...I'm being super cereal right now. These are GOURMET as sh*t without the gourmet hassle. 

It's delicious on its own OR with my paleo ranch!

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of kale, washed, dried and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 1 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

Method 

  1. Preheat the oven to 375.
  2. Melt the coconut oil in a large mixing bowl and whisk in the almond flour, granulated garlic, paprika and salt.
  3. Add the kale pieces to the mixture and stir until all the pieces are more or less coated.
  4. On one large baking sheet (or two smaller ones), spread out the kale evenly...you basically want it in a uniform layer.
  5. Place in the oven for about 12 minutes, or until the kale is slightly browned.
  6. Let sit for a couple of minutes to allow the kale to dry and crisp up.
