Kale Chips

MED logo MED logo

You can buy kale chips already made in some specialty shops – they come in small bags with a big price tag. Or you can make a large pile of these delicious healthy chips at home. I have experimented with multiple ways of making these. This technique is super easy and nets a great bowl of chips. 

Serves 4
Serving Size: about 1 cup
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15-20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


  • 1 bunch kale
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375° degrees.
  2. Wash and dry kale.
  3. Remove thick stems.
  4. Tear into “chip” size pieces.
  5. Place torn kale in a large bowl and add olive oil.
  6. Using well washed hands, massage the oil into the kale. You want to get a thin coating of oil on each surface of the kale. You will see it change colors slightly, this is ok. Keep working it until the oil is well distributed.
  7. Place kale chips in a single layer on a baking sheet.
  8. Sprinkle with salt.
  9. Bake until completely toasted. You want all the moisture removed.

Note: If you are not eating immediately, store open on the counter. You can re-crisp if needed in a warm oven.
