Baked Kale Chips


  • 1 bunch kale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt or other seasoning of choice (garlic salt, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, etc.)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease a cookie sheet. With a knife or kitchen shears, remove the thick stems and tear or chop kale into bite-size pieces.
  2. Wash and dry thoroughly. In a large bowl, drizzle kale lightly with olive oil and sprinkle with salt or other seasoning.
  3. Toss by hand to coat evenly, then spread in a single layer on cookie sheet.
  4. Bake until chips are crisp and slightly brown at edges, but not burnt; 10-15 minutes.
  5. Using a spatula, lightly toss the chips partway through cook time for more even baking.
