Wash and zip kale. How do you zip kale?! Grab the base of the stem and pull away the leafy part from the stem. Then break the leafy parts into bits. I find that young baby kale leaves to be great for kale chips because the stem is thin and I don’t have to zip the stem away from the leafy part.
In a large bowl add the rest of the ingredients, it will look like a thick paste. Add the kale bits and toss until well coated. I find this is actually easier with my hands instead of a spoon.
There are two ways to make the chips, one is the oven method and the other is using the dehydrator
Spread evenly on sheets and dehydrate for 3-4 hours until crispy.
Oven Method Slow method: preheat oven to 200 degree & spread kale evenly on a cooking sheet and bake for 2-3 hours. Quick method: (higher risk of burning!) preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake for 10-15 mins until they are lightly browned.
