Kale Chips

Kale Chips.... third time is a charm!

I tried making kale chips twice before and they did not turn out at all. I think the key is to really make sure the kale is dry. After I washed the kale, I put it in a zip lock bag with paper towels over night. Wegmans sells cleaned and cut kale in a bag. Below is the recipe; I tried the garlic ones this time. You won't need potato chips after trying these!

Clean Eating Kale Chips


  • 1 cup kale (approximate)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil (approximation of what comes out of the oil sprayer)

  • Variation
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Wash and dry your kale.
  3. Using an oil sprayer, spray the kale with a light mist of oil. If you don’t have an oil sprayer, simply drizzle it on as evenly as possible.
  4. The above two steps will give you the basic kale chips. If that’s what you want, put them in the oven now for about 15-20 minutes. But keep a close eye on them so they don’t burn. They go from perfect to charcoal very quickly.
  5. If you want flavor, either sprinkle on garlic (after spraying the oil), or sprinkle on vinegar (for a “salt and vinegar” chip flavor). Then place in the oven as directed in step 3.
