Baked Kale Chips

You know what's awesome?  When you eat a bunch of kale for dinner, go to yoga class and then come home and eat a bowl of ice cream with your husband.  I may or may not have done that last night.

Okay folks, this recipe has been floating around for a while now and I finally gave it a try earlier this summer and wow, was I surprised!  Let me echo her sentiments by stating that kale chips are no where near as yummy as these but they're a whole lot healthier and still pretty tasty (and quite addictive!)  

Here's what you need to get started:

1 bunch kale leaves
1 tbsp. olive oil
pinch of sea salt
pepper to taste
*1 tbsp. vinegar optional


1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Clean the kale and pat dry 
3. Remove the kale leaves from their stalks and tear into bite size pieces (about the size of a large potato chip.)  Place kale pieces on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil, salt, pepper and any other seasonings you may want to add.  Be creative here! Toss the leaves to make sure they're coated thoroughly and then arrange them in a single layer on the baking sheet.
4. Bake kale chips for about 7-8 minutes.
5. Let them cool and snack away!


  1. My first meeting with kale didn't go too well. But its good for me, so we need to meet again. Perhaps this recipe will help!

  2. I cant wait to try these!!! Sounds yummy!

  3. Kale Chips? You've got to be kidding me. I love kale, so I have to try these. What a fun way to incorporate a little something healthy into the mix.

    (and kale, yoga, ice cream has got to be better than pizza, couch, ice cream, right?)

  4. I am always looking for alternative "chips" to serve with dips. This is perfect!!!!!!!!!! It's a fun take on making greens for New Years as well if you're hosting a party.

  5. I have some kale in my fridge and wasn't sure what to do with I know! Thanks for sharing!
