Recipe: Kale Chips

Crispy kale chips.
Drizzled with olive oil.  Sprinkled with salt.

Single layer on parchment lined baking sheet.

If you don't believe these could possibly be good, that's okay.  I didn't believe it either!  My honey still doesn't believe it.  He only ate one.  However, I really enjoyed these and so did a bunch of people at the cocktail party we brought them too.  I highly recommend taking the little extra time to drain and cool the kale chips on paper towels.  I was in a rush yesterday, packed them up in a container and they ended up steaming themselves during our drive.  This resulted in a not quite as crispy kale chip.  That issues aside, these totally fill my salty snack food craving in a much more healthy way. 

Kale Chips

  • Kale
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  2. Rinse kale and pat dry.  Remove leaves from thick stalk and cut or tear into large pieces.
  3. Put kale into a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. 
  4. Spread kale in a single layer on the parchment lined baking sheets. 
  5. Bake for 10 - 15 minutes until kale is just starting to brown. 
  6. Remove kale from oven, place on paper towels and let cool.


  1. I've been meaning to try these! Saw a recipe earlier this summer. Thanks for the 'personal' review :-)

  2. Must try. I mean, I know kale is good for you, but apparently, it's REALLY good for you while preggo. Must eat. Pronto!

  3. OMG. I just made these. DELICIOUS. I seriously could eat the whole thing by myself. Thank you for this recipe!!!!
