Kale Chips: Success!

they’re crispy!

it’s true. I cracked the secret code that everyone has been sharing around the internet about kale chips but hiding from me.

But seriously, thanks for all your awesome advice. I lowered the heat (350), tore the kale into smaller pieces and gave them more room on the cookie sheet. And I made them twice this week. And no fire alarm blaring in my apartment!!! Success. Serious, perfect success. Crispy, salty, healthy success. Kale success.

From now on, kale chips every night. Well, not every night, but I won’t hesitate making them. And I can make them at 4am without waking my building from my smoke detector. Cause I make kale chips at 4am…don’t you?

    Oh!, I just realized I can buy kale today in the farmer’s market. It’s a shame I can’t chew it 🙂

    Betsy! Now that you made them work, that means I have less of an excuse NOT to try them. Some day! Good to know the modifications for successful chip making though. I’ll definitely be refering back to your post when the time finally comes around!

    YAY!! I’m glad you got to experience some crispy kale! I do think they are a good fill in for chips when you are in the mood for something salty.
