Baked Kale Chips

We decided to try kale chips, in an attempt to have a healthy snack option and to include more vegetables in our diet. They've turned out great each time I've made them (I've made them several times... they're addicting). You have to be careful not to overcook the kale... but it needs to be crispy (if it hasn't cooked long enough, the kale is kinda chewy, and I don't care for it). There's a fine line between done and over-done, so keep an eye on them.

Baked Kale Chips
Recipe from


1 bunch of kale
a few glugs of olive oil

  1. Heat oven to 350ยบ.
  2. Tear kale into bite-sized pieces, avoiding the tough inner stalk.
  3. Rinse well in water and dry as best you can either in a spinner or on a towel.
  4. Pour a few glugs of olive oil on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet and add the kale. *
  5. Sprinkle with salt and toss gently to evenly distribute the oil and salt, being careful not to toss the kale out of the tray.
  6. Place in oven and bake about 10-15 minutes, or until the kale is crisp.
  7. Best if eaten warm but not necessary.
* I placed the kale into a mixing bowl (which I have a lid for), added some oil, closed the lid, and shook to evenly coat the kale with oil. Then I spread the kale out on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet. The I sprinkled with a little salt and baked.

A variation to this recipe is to use a little garlic infused oil, or garlic salt.
