Baked Kale Chips

Who loves Kale chips?

I most definitely do, but I am a bit tired of paying anywhere from $5 - $9 for a small 2 oz bag.  You would be too if you bought 3-4 bags a week!

So to save a few bucks, ($144/month on Kale chips is BANANAS!) I decided to make my own.  My recipe is tried and true, and my entire family LOVES it.  Yes, LOVES it.  

We've experimented with different "toppings" or flavors by using seasonings other than sea salt.  We've even used the popcorn seasonings that you can buy at your local grocery store! However, we always seem to come back full circle to our favorite... lightly salted with sea salt.

This recipe is mad easy folks, and super yummy!

Baked Kale Chips

Time: 20 mins  |  Serves 2-3

  • 1 bag of pre-washed, chopped kale (I used half of a 2 lb bag)
  • 2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tbs of Sea Salt

Pre-heat the oven to 350F degrees.  Meanwhile fill a large mixing bowl with kale.  You may have to make 2 separate batches (like I did) since I could only fit so much in the bowl.  Pour the EVOO all over the kale then sprinkle with sea salt.  Using a rubber spatula, toss the kale in the bowl until coated by the EVOO and sea salt.  

Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and evenly spread the kale onto it using your rubber spatula.  Let bake in the oven for 15 minutes.  The kale will shrink significantly.  The edges should look browned and crispy.  Remove from the oven and let cool.  

Serve in a bowl and enjoy!
