Our commitment in doing this project is to never put something up here that isn’t truly good and tested in our kitchen. So when I say that this was delicious, please understand that it was D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
Since cutting out so many starchy carbs and breads, I had been missing the salty crunchy taste. Nuts just don’t seem to do the trick in this department. Plus, you can easily over-do it with nuts in the calorie area. So I’ve been searching for something that might help.
I decided to give the famed Kale chips a try. Believe me when I say I was skeptical. I just couldn’t grasp how a leafy green could be called a chip. But when I finished baking them, they truly were crunchy. A bit fragile, so not like a traditional chip, but very tasty and salty. They are perfectly paired with homemade pico too!

Tear the leaves from the stems and break into 1 to 2 inch pieces. Toss in olive oil. Lay on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bake at 275 for 20 minutes. Enjoy!
