Right now as I'm writing this, my first batch of kale chips (pictured here) have just come out of the oven, and let me tell you: they are delicious! The crunch is so satisfying, and you can snack on them for as long as you like without feeling guilty because kale is one of those superfoods that healthy people can't shut up about. And now, I've become one of them.

This recipe is extremely easy. Here's what you need:

Kale (I know right, who would have thought)?

Olive Oil

Salt

Pepper

Any or all of the following spices that you prefer: Garlic, rosemary, sage, onion powder, paprika, ground red pepper. (I used garlic and onion powder for mine).

Basically, all you have to do is take the kale leaves off of their hard stems and pull apart or cut the leaves into chip-sized sections (if you buy the kale in a bag at your grocery store, it may already be pre-cut into small pieces). Keep in mind that the kale will shrink in the oven, so bigger pieces are great.
Place the kale into a large bowl, sprinkle with olive oil and season with your choice of spices. Toss it up in the bowl, and then spread it all out onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. (Oven time may vary depending on several factors, so keep an eye on them after 9 minutes).

There you have it! Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy your guilt-free snack!
