Crispy Baked Kale Chips

Say goodbye to boring old potato chips and say hello to these deliciously crispy kale chips! They are much healthier and more nutritious than potato chips and they offer a unique, earthy taste. This incredibly versatile recipe cooks the kale pieces on low heat, preventing them from browning and burning. Feel free to get creative with the seasonings!


  • 1 large bundle curly green, purple or Tuscan kale
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Seasonings of your choice (1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp curry powder, or 1 tsp fresh lemon zest)


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degreed F (107 C). 
  2. Rinse the kale thoroughly and dry it well. Rip off the stems and tear the kale into pieces.
  3. Add the kale to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle the olive oil and add the seasonings. Mix well using your hands to ensure all of the kale is coated.
  4. Spread the kale over a baking sheet making sure they are not overlapping.
  5. Bake for about 20 minutes or until kale is crispy and slightly golden.
  6. Remove from the oven and let cool.
