Learn how to make kale chips at home. It’s a super easy and delicious treat that kids and adults love.
Want to know how to make kale chips? Let me just tell you, I have some kale-lovin folks in this family! I myself ate two ENTIRE pans of it today so I feel that I am somewhat of an authority on the topic.
Let me break it down for you. When I snack, I want one of two things: donuts or chips. This is well documented. I am not about to give up my toasted coconut donuts. But I can do something about the empty carbs in regular potato chips.
Sometimes on the way home from dropping our van off to be serviced, we get donuts. Other times, I make kale chips in the oven.
Guess what? We eat them both just as fast.
I love to buy an ENORMOUS bag of kale so I can eat chips ALL DAY LONG. Kale chips are seriously so good and I’m going to tell you the secret of how to make them at home.
Did I mention how easy it is? And when we aren’t eating the chips, I love to make this super easy sausage kale soup. And yes, my kids devour that too!
Yes, friends it’s true. And before you think my children are veggie-loving health experts, stop right there. Kale is one of the FEW veggies they will eat.
So get em while they are hot because they are that good.

- Raw Kale - either fresh or bagged
- Cooking oil spray
- Garlic Powder
- Preheat oven to 275 degrees
- Remove ALL stalks from kale - keeping only the leafy parts
- Arrange on un-greased cookie sheet
- Lightly spray with oil (very lightly - like one pass)
- Dust with Garlic powder and salt (or garlic salt)
- Bake at 275 for 30 minutes at least! You really don't want these to be underdone. Just watch to be sure they don't burn. As far as I am concerned, the crispier the better!
- When done I sprinkle with a little more salt....ahem. AND THEN EAT THEM ALL.

I usually stick with garlic powder, salt and pepper. That said, some people even add fancy flavors to theirs, which I am sure I will at some point because I love them. Do you have a favorite seasoning?
