It cracks me up to see my two year old munching on kale chips and going back for seconds and thirds. Normally when she finds a leafy green vegetable on her plate she picks it out and says “yucky”, but with these kale chips, there’s something about the texture and flavor that keeps her coming back for more. What surprises me even more is to see my husband (not a kale fan) enjoying them! Give them a try if you haven’t had them, you may be pleasantly surprised!

A few tips: I prefer shredded cheese vs grated cheese, add it towards the end so it doesn’t fall to the bottom. I used my misto to lightly spray them with oil which helps evenly coat them and get them crispy. If you don’t have a misto, use olive oil spray. I calculated them based on one teaspoon of oil, and that’s being generous. Don’t over-crowd the baking sheet, use two or three sheets so they crisp up.

  1. How do you recommend storing leftovers?

  2. So good. My husband inhaled these. Very light and crisp!

  3. This is one of the best Kale recipes I have found. I put the kale on a rack on a sheet pan to get more circulation of hot air. I also used the Roast setting at 350. My family loved it!

  4. Do you think using frozen kale would work?

  5. My oven might run a little hot. These burned the first time I made them within 5 minutes of putting them in the oven. This time, I lowered the temperature to 300. WARNING! Put these in a container and hide them from yourself, or they won’t last long enough to take them to work the next day! Unless you want to eat several servings of kale right away, in which case don’t hide them from yourself.

  6. Do you have any ideas on how I could present them / cook them in a way that is more appealing to my little ones? If I put this infront of them I would have a hard time getting them to try them.

  7. Am going to give this a go this weekend! #bigfanofkale

  8. How do I store these? If they are made the day before for work the next day, to keep them crisp.

  9. i made these last night they were so delicious!

  10. I make these with Nutritional Yeast instead of cheese.

  11. Be careful how long you cook them, and it shrivels up VERY easily, but they taste good 🙂

  12. We made this recipe at our cooking club and everyone loved them. They were perfect since our focus is healthy food.

  13. I've tried them in the oven, but hard to make sure they don't burn, so I'm ready to use the food dryer, which I own. Also the tip about doing them at a lower temp makes sense. I want to try them w/ nutritional yeast sprinkled on them after the oil spray. I've had those kind from the store and they are so good!

  14. add sea salt and garlic or even just sprinkle with garlic salt. fabulous!
