Kale chips are ALL the rage these days and I am 100% on the kale chip bandwagon! Here’s the problem, I have yet to find a bag of kale chips for less than $7. I sort of hate to calculate how much I’ve spent on them over the past couple of years.
Most kale chips that you buy are made in a dehydrator. I was waiting to try out a recipe until I got my dehydrator, which is on its way (thank you Buytopia!) but then I realized most people will be making them in the oven anyway, so I went ahead and did them in the oven.
Kale chips are such a great snack alternative as they lack all the processed oils and icky ingredients that most mainstream chips have, but TOTALLY satisfy that craving for chips. I mean, when can you eat a bag of chips and have got more than 100% of your daily Vitamin A and C?
This recipe, adapted from Savory Simple, is great to avoid the 3pm slump as there’s a bit of protein from the tahini and nutritional yeast, and no sugar! I will warn you, this recipe is SPICY. If you’re not into the spice, these would probably be just as good without the chili flakes.
