I made these super healthy salt and vinegar kale chips the other night before dinner, and was shocked, I mean absolutely shocked, that my children ate them. Not only did they boys eat these, they loved them. Trust me, while these kale chips are healthy, this is a sophisticated flavor combination for children.
Also, a word of warning, these gluten free kale chips are very salty. So, if you don’t care for salt as much as we do in this household, take your salt down for this recipe. You may also want to try experimenting and increasing the apple cider vinegar if the flavor of mouth puckering sour is your thing.
I know these kale chips may sound very healthy and not all that appetizing, however, just so you know, they lasted all of 4 minutes in my house and when I looked at the platter I had served them on, the boys had divided them up into “sides,” as in this is MY side, and that is YOUR side. So all I can really say is, hooray for healthy Salt and Vinegar Kale Chips!
