Kale Chips (Cooked in Coconut Oil)

If there is any of you out there who have not tried Kale it! Kale chips are a great alternative to popcorn on movie night and jam-packed with nutrients.

I typically use olive oil, but since coconut oil stands up better to heat and has a healthier fatty acid profile I would recommend giving coconut oil a whirl!

See the (very simple) recipe for kale chips below:

Servings: 2
Preparation Time: 25 minutes

  • 8 loosely packed cups kale, torn into 1" to 1½" pieces, tough stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil, melted and still warm
  • 1/4 tsp salt to taste

1. Preheat oven to 325F.

2. Rinse kale and dry thoroughly. Place in a plastic container or large bowl.

3. Poor warm oil over kale, close container lid, and shake to coat (alternatively, stir to coat in a bowl).

4. Spread out onto a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt (careful, it doesn't take much).

5. Bake for 20-22 minutes, until crispy.
