Better than potato chips…

…at least that’s what I’ve read about kale chips  I have a HUGE weakness for potato chips.  I will choose potato chips over ice cream and dessert any day.  For me, it’s salty (and crunchy) over sweet.  So when I read that kale chips are a healthy substitution to potato chips, I had to give it a try.

So I found this recipe online and tried it out last night:

Crispy Kale “Chips”


  • 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt.

Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes.

Serve as finger food.


Pretty straight forward and very easy to make. 


They’re not the prettiest looking snack, but they definitely came out crunchy.  Crunchy just like potato chips.

Taste wise?  They really are good.  I sprinkled a bit too much salt on the batch I made last night, so they’re saltier than I would have liked.  I do have a cold right now so I don’t think my sense of taste is very good but I can see myself making kale chips again in the future.  Perhaps sprinkle a bit of cheese for some extra flavor.  Once I get my full sense of taste back, I’ll try them again and will update on how they really taste.
