If you haven’t tried a Baked Kale Chips Recipe yet, you are really missing out! When you are craving something crunchy and salty, this is a MUCH healthier alternative to potato chips, Pop Chips or popcorn. I admit that I was a bit reluctant to believe that roasted kale would actually taste good, but I was pleasantly surprised and I’ve been a fan of baked kale chips ever since. I also love that these are a kid friendly veggie. My 3 year old son gobbles these down, which says a LOT! If a picky toddler eats them, then they’ve got to taste good, right? They are easy and cheap to make, and each 1 cup serving is just 1 Points +. Which means you don’t have to fee guilty about mindlessly eating them while watching TV at night :). So the next time you are thinking about grabbing a bag of potato chips, just make this Baked Kale Chips Recipe instead, and save yourself a ton of Weight Watchers Points Plus, while still feeling satisfied.
