How to Make Kale Chips

This kale chips recipe is healthy, low carb and gluten free.  Find your favorite flavoring to add!


  • 6 stems of fresh kale, washed and completely dry
  • 1 Tb olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • pepper


1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Line a large cookie sheet with parchment or a Silpat liner.
2.  Use your hands to rip off pieces of kale from the stems, around 2 inches across.  They can be any size you want but be sure all your pieces are about the same size so they cook at the same time.  You don’t want pieces of the main stem because they are very fibrous.
3.  Place pieces of kale on the cookie sheet and drizzle on the oil.  Using your hands, rub the oil into the kale pieces, being sure to completely coat all sides of the kale.  It takes a little time, but just keep rubbing it all together.  Add any additional flavoring options, listed below, if desired.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper, then bake for 20-30 minutes.  Your time will depend on the size of your pieces.  Cool and store an airtight container.


Flavoring options:
**Add these options at the same time as the olive oil
Salt and Vinegar:  3 Tb favorite vinegar
Lime and Chili:  juice of 1 lime, 1 tsp lime zest and 1 tsp chili powder
Roasted Garlic:  2 cloves finely chopped garlic, 2 tsp garlic salt
Parmesan Cheese:  2 Tb fresh parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top before baking
French Onion:  2 Tb french onion dip
Creamy Dill:  1 Tb sour cream, 2 Tb freshly chopped dill
