Garlic Kale Chips

I have a huge snacking problem. I just love anything that crunches. Chips, pretzels, you name it, I love it. I've been working really hard to get into shape so I had to give my beloved chippies up. A much healthier (and seriously, they're good) option is kale chips. I had about a 2 month obsession with these ranch kale chips from Whole Foods but at $5.99 per bag I realized it was getting ridiculous. So I started making my own to save my waistline and wallet. These are very easy and despite what other recipes may say, get the prechopped kale at the market. They're great for snacking, lunches, or just to make and having hanging around for a bad day.

What you'll need:
1 10oz bag chopped kale
Canola oil spray
1/2 tsp. garlic salt

1. Preheat your oven to 400*. Lay 1/4 of the kale on a baking sheet in a single layer. Spray with a few spritz of the canola oil and sprinkle a tiny bit of the garlic salt (the pan looks crowded but they will shrink). Bake for 20 minutes. 
2. Repeat the process until you've used up all of the kale chips (about 4 more times). 

enjoy :)


  1. I make these every now and then and use sea salt and olive oil. They are quite different and unique. Everyone should try...really good. Next time I will have to use the garlic salt.

    1. Hi Judy,
      I try to stay away from using olive oil because I feel it's a bit heavy for the delicate kale chips and I want to taste the kale, not the oil when I eat them. Try the olive oil or canola oil spray for a "lighter" feeling kale chip!
