Cooking Video for Kids: Kale Chips Kids Love! Seriously, My Kids LOVE These

Kale chips are an incredible side dish as far as nutrients go, they’re perrrrfect for little ones to help with independently, and my kids literally include, “Thank you God for kale chips at dinner,” during evening prayers, they like them so much.

If you have some kale, time to use it! If you’re still shopping, time to grab some!

  • 1 medium bunch of kale
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/4-1/2 tsp. salt

  1. Wash the kale really well and then rip it into chip-sized pieces. Don’t use the hard stem, tear the leaves away from it.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and stir until the chips are well coated.
  3. Spread out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt.
  4. Bake for 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. We always check after 10 just to be safe. These can burn quickly! They’re done when they’re “fall apart crunchy.”
  5. Store in an airtight container.

“Mooooom, I’m hungry!!”

How many times do your kids ask for snacks each day? Wouldn’t it be a relief if they were empowered to prepare their own snacks, instead of coming to you and whining about how hungry they are?
