Baked Garlic Kale Chips

These kale chips are simple to make and everyone will love them! You may even find yourself eating half a bunch of kale in one sitting!

-1 bunch of kale - any variety works
-1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil or coconut oil
-1 tsp garlic powder
-a pinch of sea salt

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

-Thoroughly wash your bunch of kale and rip into hand sized pieces and put into a large bowl. Be sure to remove the thickest part of the stem from the pieces you are ripping, as it is too tough and takes away from the chip experience.

-Add to the bowl of torn kale your sea salt and massage it into the greens for one to two minutes. You'll notice the kale wilts, this makes it less tough and more chip like. Then toss the oil and garlic with the kale and be sure to mix thoroughly so that all pieces are coated.

-Spread the kale out over two baking sheets so that each piece is not laying on top of one another. Bake for 10-20 minutes, until crispy. Let cool then enjoy!


-add fresh or dried dill (1-3tsp) and 1 tsp of onion powder for ranch style kale chips.
-add nutritional yeast and a tablespoon of lemon juice for "cheesey" kale chips.
