Kale Chips

I'm a serious snacker....and usually when I start, I can't stop.  Since I'm such a compulsive snacker, things like potato chips, cheese, etc. are a BAD idea.  Does anyone else have this problem?  
Well, guess what?  I've found a solution!  KALE CHIPS.  They are pretty much like a baked potato chip, but a kale chip, get it?  You can snack away, without the guilt.
Super easy, super quick, super healthy and surprisingly tasty.

Here's what you need:
1 bunch of kale, washed & torn into large chunks (2"x2"ish)
olive oil
sea salt
cayenne pepper (or another seasoning of your choice, I'm all about the spice!)

Preheat oven 375*. Place kale in large bowl....drizzle with oil....sprinkle with seasoning.  I use my hands to mix it all together...but you could also use a utensil, of course.

Dump the mixture out onto a baking sheet and spread out evenly.  Bake 15-25 minutes or until brown and crispy.  Cooking time may vary.  Just start checking around 15 minutes and continue to peak every few minutes until they look like little crisps!

Remove from oven and allow to cool.  They will get crispier upon cooling.  These are so good, you've got to give them a whirl....even if you don't like kale!

I apologize for the pictures.  This was a really hard thing to photograph and my creative juices weren't flowing very well!
Happy Snacking!
