Comments

My son made these and added a tsp of garlic powder, and a pinch of ground pepper:)

 

These chips were a hit!! The kids had a great time making them and they loved eating them too.  The amount of salt in the recipe might be a little too much--there was some complaint that the chips were too salty. 

The salt could always be reduced or omitted.  It could also be that it was sprinkled a little unevenly.

So quick! And my toddler couldn't stop eating them! Great recipe to have when kale is abundant in the garden and for kids snacks. I like lesleyj's comment about serving them with salsa as I am sure that would be tasty!

These are so trendy right now! I can't wait to try making them myself!

Very tasty! Light flavor, I really enjoyed these. They are a good substitute for potato chips. I might try these with some salsa next time.
