Basic Kale Chips Recipe

Kale chips are all the rage because they are a good alternative to high calorie potato chips, are quick and easy to make at home and are very inexpensive.  Everyone loves these kale chips recipes, including kids!

Preparing Kale Chips

Here is the basic kale chips recipe:


  • 1 bunch of kale (kale with curly leaves works best)
  • 1 TBSP of olive oil
  • 1 tsp of seasalt or seasoned salt


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C).
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper (aluminum foil is an option if you do not have parchment paper).
  3. Wash the kale and ensure it is dry before continuing.  You can pat the kale with paper towels or put the kale into a salad spinner.  The salad spinner may be easier to use after completing the next step.
  4. Tear the kale leaves into bite sized pieces.  You do not want to use the stalks so tear the leaves away from the center stalks.
  5. Put the kale into a bowl and drizzle with the olive oil and salt.  Stir around very well to ensure it is equally coated.
  6. Pour the kale out onto the cookie sheet.
  7. Bake in the oven until the edges start to brown but be sure not to let it burn.  Depending upon your oven this usually takes 8-15 minutes.

Once made eat the kale chips within a few hours.  If you try to store the kale chips they tend to get soggy so don’t make large batches.  In another post I will detail how to make these in a dehydrator which helps retain more of the nutrition in the kale.  Stay tuned for more kale chips recipes!
