Baked BBQ Kale Chips (Gluten-Free)
By thesavvykitchen on January 30, 2013
Baked kale chips are a perfect healthy snack that come together in a cinch and don't leave you feeling guilty. When Chris and I are in the mood for a snack, but are either dieting or have been indulging a lot lately, we usually turn to Roasted Chickpeas or Parmesan Edamame. This is a great alternative when we want to switch it up.
The BBQ flavor on these tastes almost identical to your favorite BBQ flavored potato chips. With only a few calories and a low amount of carbohydrates, you can have as many of these "chips" as you want. You can also bypass the BBQ seasoning and sprinkle on some salt in its place. They are a perfect healthy Super Bowl snack for anyone watching their figure, too. Enjoy!
- 1 large bunch fresh kale
- 1 tbsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. chili powder
- 1 tsp. paprika
- 1 tsp. light brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. pepper
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.
Wash kale and allow to dry completely. Remove the leaves from the stems and tear into bite-size pieces.
Lay kale evenly on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in the oven and cook for about 25 minutes or until crispy. It might take more or less time depending on your oven and if the kale was completely dry after washing.
Meanwhile, mix the chili powder, paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
Once kale is crispy, remove from oven and place in a large bowl. Immediately sprinkle with desired amount of seasoning (I used about 3/4 and then added more as necessary). Shake the bowl around so the kale is completely coated. Enjoy!
