Oven Baked Crispy Green Beans....Healthy GF Snack!!

They are easy to whip up, satisfying, and not at all bad for you; as a matter of fact they are actually good for you. I am talking about "Crispy Baked Green Beans.... a Healthy Snack (GF/DF)".  They provide all the fun of regular fries, but none of the calories and fat!  Although my kids do not generally care for green beans, this recipe had them not only enjoying them, but reaching for seconds. Just like French Fries, you cannot eat just one!



OVEN BAKED CRISPY GREEN BEANS 





Recipe:

  • Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, washed and trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Preparation:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the green beans with the olive oil. Add the salt, pepper and paprika and toss well to coat.
  3. Pour the green beans onto the baking sheet and bake until crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Cool slightly before serving.

  5. I'm going to have to try this. If they don't get eaten up right away, do they stay crispy or do they soften up a bit?

  11. my beans never got crispy even after being in the oven for 25 minutes but...they were delicious. do you leave the leftovers out or refrigerate them?? maybe I use too much olive oil because they're just very shiny and they still have a crunch but they're not dried out with the kosher salt like urs looked.

    1. I leave them out of the refrigerator in an air tight container. I think you may have used a touch too much oil but glad you enjoyed them just the same!

    1. You may have used a little too much oil which would explains the green beans never crisping up. Hope that helps.
