Baked Kale Chips- addicting!

Leafy green vegetables aren't exactly my kids' favorites but today I heard words like "Amazing!" "Addicting!" "They taste like potato chips!" about one.


I washed a bunch of kale and removed the large stems from the leaves. Then I dried the kale completely. You can do this with one of those salad spinners but I don't have one so I used paper towels.

For the first batch we used olive oil and sea salt. For the second batch we added some nutrional yeast. (This is not an active yeast. I bought it in bulk at the local food co-op. It has a nutty, cheesy flavor and is a great source of protein and B vitamins.)

Bake for 20 minutes at 300 degrees and the leaves become crisp like a potato chip! We ate the entire two batches! A leafy green vegetable addicting? Believe it!


  1. I CAN'T WAIT to try these! thanks for the rave review and how to--had heard of this, but this post made me want to do it. : )

  2. If I remember my nutrition class .... Kale has nutrients in it that help with platlet counts. This would be a great way to help Java with her low counts.

  3. I'll have to try this! I have the kids who beg for spinach in the store, so I think it would be an easy sell!

  4. Hey, I saw this recipe and I thought of you. Can you have these cookies? They don't have flour. I don't think peanut butter, eggs or sugar have gluten or casein. Do they?


    Oh, and the person whose blog posted this recipe made them into cute as can be buttons. I would probably just do the fork thing, but you are more artsy in the kitchen then I am, by a long shot!

  5. So I tried this last night, and was not very successful...too much salt maybe not the right amount of oil....how do you put the oil on?

  6. I just drizzled it on and rubbed it in to the batch. I think the key is to completely dry the water off first. We haven't made this in a while so when we make it again I can add additional notes here.
