Curb Your Cravings with Kale Chips

I love chips. Lentil chips, potato chips, veggie chips, tortilla chips – it doesn’t matter, as long as it’s in crunchy, salty and within arm’s reach.

But lately, I’ve discovered a healthier way to curb those chip cravings — with homemade baked kale chips! They take only minutes to prepare and are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium and other nutrients.

Homemade Baked Kale Chips

Preheat oven to 350 °  F.

Tear kale into bite-size pieces, then rinse and dry. (I used my brand new salad spinner, weeeee! But a little patting with a paper towel will do the trick, too.)

Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil, add kale.

Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, seasonings or your topping of choice.

Bake for 10-15 minutes or until edges start to brown. Kale should be crisp.

Munch and enjoy!

    How about more ideas for different seasonings? I’m not creative at all in the kitchen. Don’t include anything hot and spicy.

    1. lindielee, great question!

      I like to use garlic powder – if you’re a huge fan of garlic like me, you might not even need the sea salt.

      Other variations I’ve seen:
      - a dash of chili powder and a squeeze of lime juice (not too spicy)
      - sea salt, rosemary, garlic & sage
      - grated lemon zest
      - soy sauce (sub half the olive oil for soy sauce and cut the salt)
      - a sprinkling of nutritional yeast
      - mild taco seasoning

      Let me know which one you decide to try! :-)

    Katie,
    I’m glad you’re on the kale chip band wagon. They are so delish! Definitely more nutritious than regular chips.
