These Coconut Oil Kale Chips are super easy to make and are way better than any store bought kind!
…AND I probably just lost about half of you. I know what you’re probably thinking, eating Kale as chips? Weird.
But seriously they are soooo good!
A few years back I tried a few different store bought kinds of Kale Chips and guess what, I hated all of them. So I was a little turned off at first. Honestly I don’t know what prompted me to try making these after all these years, I think it was because I was cleaning out my fridge and had a bunch of Kale leftover.
Typically when it’s fridge clean out day, I roast any veggies that are getting too ripe to eat raw. So I thought, hey let’s give these Kale Chips one more try… and it totally worked!
When making Kale Chips it’s important to wash and completely dry the leaves, that way they’ll crisp up real nice. Tear off bite size pieces (they will shrink a bit when cooking), and discard the thick stem.
Add the Kale leaves to a big bowl, drizzle the Coconut Oil over, and really massage it into leaves making sure to coat them all.
You could use Olive Oil if you wanted, but I think the Coconut Oil really gives these chips a delicious slightly sweet but yet salty flavor when combined with the Sea Salt.
Sweet and Salty… such a great combo. 🙂
Make sure you keep an eye on these beauties as cook so they don’t get too burnt. I happen to like a little extra crispiness, so cook to your liking.
