Kale Chips 4 Ways

Apparently kale chips are the new craze. Either that or I am a bit late to the party. In any situation, kale is CHEAP. Let me emphasize that. Kale is dirt cheap. I'm talking $0.99 a bunch cheap. Which means you can make this tasty treat for next to nothing and in under 20 minutes. As if I haven't already convinced you, just to throw in one more perk, kale is also extraordinarily healthy. Check it out here for the benefits.

  • Sea Salt Kale Chips (sea salt)

  • Spicy Kale Chips (cayenne pepper)

  • Garlic Kale Chips (garlic powder)

  • Parmesan Kale Chips (parmesan cheese)




Kale Chips 4 Ways

  • 1 bunch of kale (or more if you would like)

  • 2-3 tbsp Olive Oil

  • Sea Salt

  • Cayenne Pepper

  • Garlic powder

  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Line baking sheets with foil and preheat oven to 350ºF.

  2. Pull leaves away from the thick stem and spread onto baking sheet. They can be packed closely together.

  3. Drizzle olive oil over them. For 1 full pan worth of kale leaves, I would use about 2-3tbsp olive oil.

  4. Sprinkle sea salt (about 1 tbsp) on all of the leaves.

  5. I divided the tray into 4 sections so I could try each type of chips. Sprinkle about 1-2 tsp of the seasoning onto the section of the tray for that flavor. (Garlic chips = 1-2 tsp garlic powder; Spicy chips = 1-2 tsp cayenne pepper; Parmesan chips = 1-2 tsp parmesan cheese)

  6. Place baking sheet in oven and cook for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye out because they do burn easily.

  7. Serve hot or cold. Store in tupperware.

How did yours turn out? I tried this with just the garlic powder and sea salt.. but accidentally burned a few .. some were good but then after storing in tupperware they went soft again..

Mine turned soft too. I threw them in the oven again for a few minutes when I went to eat some the next day and it helped. I think the better idea would simply be to leave them in a bow uncovered or to make only enough for one sitting. Since you can eat quite a few and they are so quick to make, I think the latter may be the best option.

yeah good point. I also noticed you didn't pull away the stems as much as I did, I ended up with a lot of small pieces that were kind of annoying. Also I am apparently late to the kale chip party too. I just hate washing/soaking kale...
