Baked Kale Chips

Kale Chips 0110

The second nosh for our Super Bowl Healthy Eats Series are these delicious kale chips.  I have written about kale being a superfood as well as the health benefits of kale many times.  Have I told you that they make a great snack?  This is an easy recipe that is really good.  Besides the benefits of your daily dose of kale, these chips are seasoned and them baked until crunchy – see I told you it was easy!  Feel free to use any  kind of kale.  I picked up two different types from the Happy Boy farm last weekend and what I like about their kale besides being organic is that the leaves are relatively small.  After I wash the kale I pat the leaves dry and then snip off the ends, I do not tear them into pieces as it is more fun to munch on a leave.  I usually season them with a brush of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt, this time I seasoned the leaves with a soy sauce mixture … yum!

Now you may think these are odd for Super Bowl, but trust me, they will be gone in no time, even the manliest man will love them!



  1. So what would you compare them to in taste? Curious.

  2. Great idea! Love kale, and this really appeals to me.

  3. Hmmm – I have read so much about these and I like the sound of your version with the soy. We’re getting a ton of kale in our organic box this week so might have to give it a go!

  4. I have seen so many rave reviews for kale chips lately. I was skeptical at first, but it sounds like I’d better given them a try!

  5. I like the idea of eating such a tasty healthy “leaf.” ha ha Wow, I wish I lived in CA where you can obtain wonderfully “fresh from the farm” produce. I’m just a little envious of your advantage. Looks beautiful. Thanks for sharing and I can’t wait to share with my gym-rat friends.

    Why have I not tried these yet? I don’t know why I assumed kale chips had to cook for a long time. I don’t think I’ll be watching the Super Bowl, but I definitely want to make these soon.

  7. I’ve heard a lot about kale chips lately….they must be all the rage! But, I’ve heard they’re good! Will have to try soon.

  8. That is a great idea! A lovely recipe!



  9. Okay, I have to try these again. Mine came out bitter, but I tried using cooking spray instead of oil. I’ll give your recipe a try. I bet I have much better luck!

    Yum! Haven’t tried it with kale but LOVE crispy collard greens and brussel sprout ‘leaves’. Salty, crunchy…tons of umami. I’ve inadvertently done this in a saute pan while cooking and my daughter and I fight over who gets to eat the crispy little leftover bits! Will now make them on purpose. Thanks!

    These were yummy. Did have a bitter after- taste sometimes. I used olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt. Made another tray with the soy sauce and they were yummy. Also you must must try dipping these in equal parts of Greek yogart and jar salsa.
