Ingredients for Kale Chips

Kale chips are so delicious, nutritious and easy to make! I wanted to share my recipe for garlic kale chips with you all today.

I used three different types of kale: dinosaur kale, purple curly kale, and regular curly kale. By mixing the kale with olive oil and a touch of garlic salt, these kale chips baked to perfection and were devoured pretty much immediately!

Garlic Kale Chips Recipe

Here’s what you’ll need:

Kale chips going into the oven!

  • 2 cups of kale
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then take your kale, wash thoroughly and dry. I personally used a mix of dinosaur kale, purple curly kale and regular curly kale.

Once washed, take your kale and tear the leaves away from the stem. Tear the leaves into smaller “chip” size pieces, keeping in mind the leaves will become much smaller when baked.

Garlic Kale Chips

Take two cups of this kale and put it in a large mixing bowl. Add in the teaspoon of olive oil and the 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt. Then mix well to make sure all the kale leaves are coated.

Take a baking sheet and line with parchment paper. Then place the kale leaves on the parchment paper and try to make sure the kale leaves do NOT touch each other.

Once you’ve got all your kale leaves on your baking sheet, you’re all set to put them in the oven.

Bake for ten to fifteen minutes or until browned and crispy.

Let cool and then enjoy!

These garlic kale chips make a great snack or a nice accompaniment to a sandwich in place of potato chips!
