How to Make Kale Chips

Last week, Whole Foods was having a sale on bunches of kale. I bought one bunch and brought it home to make some kale chips, thinking I could bring them into work for a mid-afternoon snack. Things didn’t work out so well (or things worked out TOO well); as soon as they came out of the oven, we devoured all of the chips and I didn’t have time to run to the grocery store to buy more! These are amazing right out of the oven and they do keep for a bit, but they probably won’t last.

Ingredients for Kale Chips

1 bunch of kale
1 tablespoon of sea salt
2 tablespoons of olive oil (or Pam)
Any spices you’d like to add (garlic powder, chili powder, etc)


Wash the kale (if you have a salad spinner, use it!) and place it with the sea salt and olive oil (and other spice) into a bowl:


Combine all of the ingredients together and make sure the kale is coated with the olive oil and spices. Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper:


Place the kale into the oven (preheated to 400 degrees) and bake for 10 minutes. The kale is done when it’s dry – be sure to keep an eye on it around the 8 minute mark because it turns brown really quickly:


Kale is very high in fiber, vitamin c, lutein, and antioxidants. Baking them into “chips” makes it fun to eat and I’m sure it’ll garner some interest from your kids (or pesky eaters). Kale comes out of the oven very crisp and they taste really great if you add some sea salt (and pepper) to them.
