When you’re mad, do you generally like crunchy things?
Sometimes I do–and not just when I’m mad, but in general when things have a sound or bite to them, it’s so satisfying. I guess that’s why Doritos will always have a place in my heart for their ~sensational~ experience.
The sweet chili heat in particular, is quite addicting.
Oh who am I kidding, all their flavours are!
Buutttttt let’s make our own healthified version, shall we? 😉
- Coconut oil (or butter)
- Walnuts (optional)
- Nutritional Yeast (optional)
- Fat-burning Paleonnaise (optional to dip in!)
**I do not recommend using extra virgin olive oil because it goes rancid at high temperatures** If you really want, you can top the kale chips at the very end with a drizzle but do not cook or bake with it!
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Remove the kale leaves from the stems
- Melt coconut oil in a separate bowl
- Mix and massage (yes, really get in there!) the coconut oil with the kale; coating it from all angles
- Throw in some crushed walnuts, if you’re using it.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes 🙂
- Throw on some nutritional yeast as garnish/topping if you feel like it.
Best transformation photo I’ve seen ever. Beats all those body-weight loss ones from Instagram. xD
As you can see, I didn’t use nutritional yeast in this recipe but you sure can–if you like cheesy, nutty flavours! They pack a wonderful source of Vitamin B 12 as well, which helps the body metabolize fats, protein, and carbs.
You will not miss Doritos 🙂
Especially when you dip it in this:
Yoouuuuuu””rrrreeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee welcome. <3
Oh! I should mention, you can use this recipe with other herbs as well, such as parsley, cilantro, dill, etc. Just keep an eye out on the baking process as they’re not as tough as kale texture-wise, so reduce the bake time to 10 minutes ish. 🙂
What’s your favourite chip brand? Chip flavour?
