Homemade Kale Chip Recipe

Why go to the store and buy $5 bags of kale chips when you can make double that for half the price, right in the comfort of your own home? This recipe is simple, fast, and deliciously amazing. It also contains all the ridiculous health benefits of kale which range from its anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidants, Vitamins K, C, A and minerals like potassium, calcium and iron. In fact, per calorie, kale has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk, and 10x more vitamin C than spinach!

Kale "chips" are a wonderful substitute for regular potato chips which are packed with unhealthy cooked fats and loaded with sodium. Read on to find out how you can make your own healthy kale chips with just 3 ingredients, and 3 simple steps!

- 1 bundle organic kale
- cold-pressed coconut oil (preferably raw, organic), or other cold-pressed oil like hemp or olive oil (you could even use avocado here!
- herbs & spices (whichever you please: salt, pepper, cayenne, dill, thyme, rosemary, garlic etc.)
- 1 lemon (optional)

1. Remove kale leaves from the thick inner stem and break leaves into bite-size pieces (doesn't need to be perfect). Place in a large bowl.

2. Add 1 tbsp. oil, or 1/2 avocado to the leaves, as well as whatever spices you choose to add. I like my kale chips simple, so I normally just add 1/2 avocado and some lemon and garlic. Massage and evenly coat the kale leaves with whatever you have decided to add. If you aren't so fond of adding oils and fats, you can simply leave this out, and just coat the kale with lemon juice and spices/herbs.

3. If you have a dehydrator - use it! It will ensure that your snack is 100% raw. If you don't have a dehydrator, that is okay, because you can use the lowest setting of your oven to lightly dehydrate the kale leaves (this will take much shorter than a dehydrator). If you have a dehydrator, put the kale onto a dehydrator sheet and dehydrate at 115ºF for 4-6 hours or until crisp. If you are using an oven, put your oven onto its lowest setting and bake for 35 minutes or until crisp.
