Kale Chips, the perfect fall snack!

I have become mildly obsessed with kale. I find myself looking up recipes in my free time and when I came across this idea I couldn't wait to try it!

2 cups of Kale, chopped, and hard stems removed( My favorite is Trader Joe's ready to cook Kale)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
Seasoning of your choice:
I used a pinch of sea salt and garlic powder for this batch
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees
Lay the kale on a baking sheet, make sure to spread the pieces a reasonable distance from each other so they cook instead of steam...

(this may look crowded but I promise it isn't)

Once the oven is up to temperature, place the Kale inside and bake for 25 minutes or until crisp.

When they come out they will look something like this :

They are so full of flavor and you can eat this entire tray for under 150 calories! These could also be used with your favorite salsa or guacamole instead of chips if you used bigger pieces.

Happy Eating!


  1. I had these on the side of a veggie burger instead of fries at this place Whitman's last year and they were so great. Only thing was they were super oily. But I guess when you make them yourself you can control that...sweet!!

  2. Whitman's crack kale is deep fried if memory serves me right.
