Kale chips – my new favorite snack. So easy to make and so good. I can’t believe I only recently found out about them. All these years I’ve been stuffing my face with terribly unhealthy Lays potato chips when I could have been baking my own vegetable chips. Not going to lie – I do still enjoy the occasion handful (or more like a bag) of potato chips, but I am making a conscious effort to eat less of them. These kale chips sure make the transition a lot easier. If you love potato chips I urge you to make these. A much healthier alternative for sure. A note of caution – if you’re a fellow blogger trying to take a photo of these – don’t do it on your balcony on a windy day – inevitably more than a few will blow away and be lost forever to the wind. : (

- curly kale
- freshly cracked black pepper
- olive oil
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Wash and dry kale leaves. Remove stems and rip leaves into smaller pieces - better if pieces are the same size so they cook evenly.
- In a large bowl toss kale leaves with salt, pepper and a drizzle of olive oil. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes or until kale looks crunchy (make sure not to over cook - leaves will turn a darker green/brown).
