Kale Chips

Kale Chips are so IN right now, I see many people on Twitter and Facebook talking about how much they love them. Then there are also people like me that are saying, huh, what the heck are Kale Chips?? I searched the net to try them out and the recipe is pretty much the same across the board, here's what I did (and it was delicious).


Step 1:
Fill your sink with water, rip up leaves of kale into "chip size" chunks and toss them in. Give them a quick scrub with your hands and dry with a salad spinner or pat dry (you want them WELL dried).

Step 2:
Lay out a single layer on a cookie sheet. Drizzle or brush with XVOO (extra virgin olive oil) - I've heard the best way is to mist it on, but I don't have a mister.

Step 3:
Bake at 350 for approx 10 minutes. You should watch these from 8 minutes on, and they can blacken on you in a second. Sprinkle with kosher or seasoned salt as soon as they come out of the oven.   Best served fresh and warm in my opinion.

Family Thoughts: 

I thought they were great, a quick and easy addition to any meal, perfect for lunch. Kids did turn their nose up because they were green and "weird" but I think they will like the taste and texture in the future. The health benefits of kale are awesome and this is a tasty "treat"!


  1. Delicious, aren't they?

    I've had a bit more luck putting the salt on before I cook the kale. It seems that the oil helps the salt "stick" so that it stays spread out more evenly.

    Aside from that, I bake my kale in a very similar way!

  2. I will try that, thanks for the tip!!

  3. We love Kale Chips in our house too! I find that by tossing them and massaging them in a large mixing bowl before spreading them on the baking sheet works really well.

    I also season them before baking!

  4. Made this tasty treats in my dehydrator (which I love)! I drizzled olive oil and a grind or two of sea salt shook them in a bowl and place them in the dryer. So Yummy!

  5. I've always wanted to try Kale Chips, but haven't managed to do it yet! Thanks for the post!
