Save yourself loads of money and make these delicious and addictive cheesy kale chips at home!
I already have a basic kale chip recipe that you can make in your oven, but I wanted to recreate those amazing cheesy kale chips you can buy at the store. You know the ones, they’re coated in a yellow/orange seasoning. They’re so deliciously addicting…I can literally polish off a whole bag in less than 5 minutes. $7 dollars… gone in 5 minutes. Given my track record with kale chips I knew I needed to start making them at home. They’re way cheaper and probably a little bit better for you as well!
While I’m super excited to read the book, I was also pumped when I saw that there were two raw treats (kale chips and a raw sugar cookie) included in the package. I sat the packaged treats in what I thought was a “safe spot” on the coffee table for later. Well, it wasn’t a very safe spot because I came home for lunch and found empty packages on the floor and a dog with a belly full of raw foods! We don’t feed Olive human food and she’s never gotten into food on the coffee table, but for some reason the raw goodies attracted her. Apparently, she has good taste. Obviously I was mad at her, but it’s really hard to be mad for long because she’s just so darn cute. Anyhow, since my kale chips were eaten without me even getting a bite I decided to make a batch of my own.
This recipe makes kale chips that are covered in a thick spicy/cheesy sauce and perfectly crispy. They’re seriously amazing! I ate over a dozen as part of my breakfast and by the time lunch was over I had polished off a whole dehydrator sheet of them. Luckily I made a large batch and still have 1 sheet worth left, for now! No dehydrator, no problem. While I definitely think dehydrating takes kale chips to a different level, that doesn’t mean you can’t make kale chips if you don’t have one. I’ve seen (and tried) several recipes that can be made using an oven. Check out my baked kale chips.
But I will let you in on a little secret – while kale chips are healthy, they are just as addictive as regular chips! Be prepared. 🙂
