Kale Chips

So I know I’m totally late on this trend and blog post but trust me it’s totally worth it! If you haven’t tried kale chips you are missing out. They are awesome! No seriously! Mr. RWB and the doggies agree. Amazing, right?

Anyway, kale has really good nutrients but I’m not a big fan of it in salads. I enjoy sautéing it because it maintains its crisp but by far my favorite is kale chips. I can’t make them fast enough. They are light yet crispy and full of flavor. I’ve made kale chips 5 different ways so far:  Italian, BBQ, Herb, Lemon herb and plain old Salted.

At $1.30 a bunch, it’s amazing!


1 bunch kale

Non-stick spray

Italian seasoning blend                                 OR

Mystic Spice Sticky Sweet BBQ                   OR

Mystic Spice Citrus Herb                               OR

Oregano, Rosemary, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Lemon         OR

Sea Salt


  1. Heat oven to 400 and spray cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  2. Tear kale into smaller pieces of roughly the same size (if very different some will burn while others won’t be done)
  3. Place kale on cookie sheet and spray with non-stick spray (helps the seasonings stay on and kale to crisp.kale chip prebake
  4. Choose seasoning and apply generously.
  5. Bake for 5 – 15 minutes depending on piece size. Check regularly as they can go from not done to black very quickly.  Chips should be crisp throughout. May want to remove some of the smaller pieces as they finish.kale chips seasoned prebake1
  6. Enjoy! Store in an air tight container, if you have any left!kale chips finish 2

    I’m behind on the whole Kale trend too. Mainly because it could taste like chocolate but my kids wouldn’t know, I’d never get them to taste it. But it’s time for Mom to stop suffering because of them. Thanks to this recipe, I now see how easy it is, I’m trying it for me.

    Hi Melissa! Kale chips are fantastic, aren’t they? They definitely take care of the salty/crunchy snack craving for me. I’ve also tossed them with toasted coconut and nuts or beans for a salad or side dish. I love all the spice blend ideas you have – I’ve only made them with salt and olive oil so it’s time for me to branch out! Thanks for sharing!
