Ingredients
  • Bunch of Kale
  • 3 Tablespoons Chia Seeds
  • 2 Tablespoons Pumpkin Seeds
  • 4 Tablespoons of water
  • ½ teaspoon Lemon Juice can add more if you would like
  • less then ¼ teaspoon Sea Salt
  • ½ teaspoon oil (I used Sunflower but flax seed or Olive Oil would work just as well). ½ of the oil in the mixture ½ for oiling the pans.
Instructions
  1. Clean Kale - Using a sharp knife remove the stems the entire way up the leaf. Once stem is removed cut kale into lager then bite sized pieces. Put into a big bowl and fill with water. Allow to soak to get out any dirt you don't want your Kale Chips to be gritty.
  2. While Kale is soaking pour the other ingredients into a bowl and mix well. You can use a spoon or a fork to mix it all together. Remember the Chia Seeds will soak up a lot of liquid so be sure to put all the ingredients in together so that the water is seasoned. Allow to sit. Will form a creamy mixture.
  3. Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees
  4. Spill the water out of the now clean Kale making sure to get as much water out as possible. You can use a salad spinner if you have one. If not don't worry about it I didn't use one either.
  5. Lightly oil your baking sheet jelly sheet or pizza pan. Something as shallow as possible so that you are not tempted to layer the Kale.
  6. Combine the Kale and the creamy mixture you might want to toss it in another bowl so that you have more room to make sure you are coating all of the kale leaves with the mixture.
  7. Lay the Kale out on whatever you are going to bake them on. I used 2 Pizza Pans and they worked really well. I thought I was going to need a third but it wound up all fitting. Remember as the moisture cooks out the Kale will shrink.
  8. Put the Kale in the oven. I set the timer for 10 minutes and stirred it up to keep the Kale from burning but making sure to allow it all to become cripsy. I did this for about 35 minutes which was enough time for almost all of the kale to become nice and crunchy. I put the crunch Kale in a bowl and turned off the oven and let the rest of the kale dry out some more with whatever heat was left inside.
  9. Serve right out of the oven, as a snack after school, or pack some to help you get through the day at work. These Baked Kale chips are packed with important vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
Notes
I had a bit of a kitchen accident when making these Kale Chips and some spilled on the floor. Since all of the ingredients are as healthy for your dog as they are for you I called over my dogs and they helped clean up the mess. My younger dog thought they were a great treat but it did take a minute for my older dog to warm up to them but once she did she came back for more.


These are the pans I used and they worked perfectly!

The Kale will cook way down as it becomes a nice crispy treat. Don’t worry about it overflowing your baking pan.

From a bunch of Kale it made about 3/4 of a bowl of Kale chips. If you have a large family or want to have extra for another day make at least 2 if not 3 bunches.

*Kale is a great source of vitamins and Nutrients for your dog too. Don’t forget to make some for Fido! There are 45 Flavonoids which contain a chemical chemical that has an antioxidant (protecting the body from damage done by free radicals) effect. Antioxidants help you and your dog stay healthy!

  2. You’d think I would have tried kale chips by now, but I haven’t. I like your extra additions like pumpkin seeds and chia seeds, and the way your recipe lets the chia seeds soak up the oil, lemon, and salt, I’ll bet it’s good! I’m impressed that your little Cavalier ate some of it, dogs aren’t usually too keen on greens. Must have been the oil on the kale leaf that convinced him!

  3. I have to say, Kale is one of those foods I’m timid to try. These look amazingly healthy though.
