Classic Kale Chips

You might be skeptical, but I think that these are almost better than potato chips. Crunchy, salty, healthy, what’s not to like? These chips are super easy to make and guilt-free.

Ingredients:

  • Fresh kale
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper

Method:

Wash the kale thoroughly and let it dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Shred the kale into bite-sized pieces. Next, drizzle with olive oil. I tossed mine in a bowl with the oil.

Here’s the secret to making the best chips: use your fingers to massage the olive oil into each piece so that the whole surface of both sides is covered; this way the kale will cook much more evenly–and taste great!

Lay out the pieces in one layer on a baking sheet, and sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired.

Bake at 300F for about 25 minutes– watch the kale carefully while baking! It is easy to overbake. As soon as they get crisp, take them out of the oven.

Mine turned out a little bit dark because I baked them at 350F. A lower temperature will take longer, but give you lovely green chips that are crunchy and delicious. The next batch I made turned out much better, but I ate them all before I thought to take a picture…

Happy snacking!

  1. Haven’t tried kale chips because they look…. frankly “weird” whenever I see them in a plastic on container at the health food stores. I’m always scared they’ll have that “stale” oil taste… you know? But I’ll definitely give this recipe a try!
