Healthy Snacking: Homemade Kale Chips

Killing the munchies with the healthiest crisps (or chips in America) you can indulge in, homemade Kale Chips. A lot of the times when I tell people about this, they pull this odd confused face.


In reality it tastes REALLY good and curbs the cravings… somewhat.

What You Need:

  1. A bag of kale (or a bunch)
  2. Seasonings: salt, pepper, paprika, garlic salt, etc. (optional)
  3. Olive oil

What You Do:

  1. Wash the kale in advance. The kale needs to be completely dry for the oven otherwise it won’t get nice and crispy. Rinse and dry a couple hours before. I REPEAT, THE KALE NEEDS TO BE COMPLETELY DRY.
  2. When ready, preheat the oven to 350F/ 175C
  3. Put your washed, but dry kale in a large bowl
  4. Sprinkle olive oil and your chosen seasonings all over the kale and shake the kale to evenly spread the oil
  5. Get a baking sheet and cover it in tin foil, and smother olive oil all over the tin foil
  6. Put the kale in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  7. Check the kale 8 minutes in and move them around so they evenly bake
  8. Et Voila, crunchy, healthy homemade kale chips.


Don’t be disheartened if it comes out a little too crispy or burnt. That can happen first time round, just keep trying.

Tip: if some of the kale chips are still soft (not really crispy) put them back in the oven, but take out the pieces that are crispy. I usually repeat this method until they are all crispy.
