Put Some Floss in Your Handbag

'cause after you eat kale chips, you need it!

This was my second time making kale chips.  Last time I massaged the kale with olive oil, sprinkled dumped on salt and then let it dry in a 150 degree oven over night.  So, yeah, I ate it all but it was SALTY

This time, I used this recipe.  I followed it pretty exactly, so based on how it turned out, this is how I'd like to do it next time:

2 large bunches kale, just the leafy parts.  (Chop up the stems and add them to your soup)
2 tsp. lime juice2 T melted coconut oil 
2 T creamy almond butter
1 T honey
1/4 tsp. crushed red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon random Mrs. Dash blendy stuff that was around

Mix the above all together, then massage into kale that has been washed, dried and pulled into chippy size pieces (remember it'll shrink a lot!) 

Spread onto cookie sheets covered with parchment or silpats, then leave in the oven overnight.  At least 8 hours is good.  

I thought this snack was so healthy that it was too embarrassing to share, but when I offered it to a few friends today at Izumi's school, it was a hit.  And that is why I'm posting this recipe, right, Satoi?  Let me know if/when you try it!
