Kale Chips – Healthy, Low Carb, Keto and Paleo Friendly


Seriously, when I first heard about kale chips I thought, gross. I mean, I’ve had quite a few chips in my time and the idea of someone telling me that kale can be a replacement for chips was laughable. Well – joke’s on me! It’s shockingly delicious.

And simple. I forgot to mention how incredibly simple this is. It’s almost not even a recipe – but I had to share with you guys anyways!

Here are the ingredients you’ll need – literally – 4. How awesome is that.

Here are the steps – preheat the oven to 350, cut the kale, trim off the stems – this takes about 1.5 minutes. Put kale onto pan. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Sprinkle over 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes – more or less depending on how much you like heat. Put into the oven. Bake for 10-15 minutes until crispy and a very slightly brown.

Remove from oven and that’s it! A perfect snack. It’s like eating a super-thin chip…..there is a flavor there that’s different than chips – but believe me – the crunch, the texture, the experience is great! N and I ate half of the kale right away. I’m very excited to have this recipe – I hope you try it and are as amazed as I am!  I can’t wait to make some healthy dips to go along with this….stay tuned!

  1. I make these all the time and they are spectacular! I too often find myself eating an entire bundle of kale before i know it. before I bake them, I pretend im a chef and add all sort of spices to mine… curry and chili powder are one of my favs :).

    However, my only complaint is that they don’t keep well. Unless you just eat them straight from the oven, which is usually the case, they’re limp and soggy the next day. Do you have a better way of storing the ‘crisps’??

    • You know what’s funny – I actually kept mine out on the counter uncovered….and they were super crisp the next day as well. So maybe that’s the trick….not covering them up! But I guess that would only work for a day or so.

      My brother and I are working on new variations of this as well – the ultimate would be to make a salt and vinegar version!! Love the spices you add to yours – will def have to try the curry and chili powder variation!

  2. Who would have thought that a leafy green could be enjoyed like a snack! I wil have to try this too! And if I eat the whole bunch– who cares??

    What a unique way to eat kale. Dr. Oz just recommended it on his show as one of the
    best veggies to eat. Joan
