Kale Chips


Who knew that it was so easy to make your own kale chips?  I sure didn’t until my sister made them with me one day. It just wasn’t something I thought about making myself yet, although I regularly purchase a pack from my local grocery store.

Recently, I had a bunch of kale in the refrigerator that were turning soft and I didn’t want to throw them away.  Because, who likes to waste money? I sure don’t and I caught it just before it turned bad. And since I’m trying to incorporate more healthy snacks into my lifestyle, I thought this would be a perfect time to make homemade kale chips.


Check the recipe down below.  If you try them, I bet you’ll be very proud of yourself.  🙂

Peace and Love!


Homemade Kale Chips

1 bunch of fresh kale

2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

1 tsp black pepper

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1/2 smoked paprika


Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F.

  1. Rinse the kale carefully and remove from all stems.
  2. Lay kale flat on a few sheets of paper towels and pat each piece dry.  Take your time doing this, because any water left on the leaves will prevent it from becoming crispy.
  3. Massage oil into the kale (take your time here as well to make sure it is completely covered) and add spices.
  4. Toss and lay flat on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, without overlapping each other.
  5. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven, and toss kale around the pan.  Return to the oven for another 10-15 minutes, or until crispy.
  6. Remove from oven and let cool.
