Crispy, Salty Kale Chips

Why didn't I try these before? I had always briefly read over recipes involving kale and turning them into chips, but they either required a dehydrator (which I do not have nor have room for) or I assumed that I would not be able to find large leafed kale at my local grocer. Well this recipe requires neither. I found that just like pre-packaged salads come washed and cut up ready to eat in a bag, likewise there are pre-chopped kale bags! And, if you prefer to buy the whole kale bunches, it's easy to just take the leaves off of the thick center stem and pull them apart or cut them into bite size pieces. The only other ingredients needed are coconut oil and salt. Here is what to do:

Take a handful or two of kale greens
toss/ lightly coat in coconut oil (you don't need much, maybe a tablespoon)
sprinkle sea salt of top

Put the greens on a flat baking sheet and bake in oven at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until the edges start to turn brown. Once they turn brown they quickly burn so take them out right away. Also you may want to flip the greens about half way through to make sure both sides get crispy.

Then just take out and snack! Sooo good (and sooo healthy)
