February 17th: Homemade Kale Chips

I have been wanting to make these for a while now, and since they are now carrying Kale at Trader Joe’s, we’ve been buying it for our smoothies, I figured it was a great opportunity to make these. I love the Kale chips that I purchase at whole foods, so I felt like it was only a matter of time before I made these at home myself.


  • Bunch of Kale
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea Salt
  • Chili powder

How to Steps:

1. Preheat to oven to 375 degrees.

2. Make sure Kale leaves are washed and dried well.

3. Combine the Kale and olive oil in a bowl and rub until well coated. Sprinkle with sea salt and other seasonings to taste.

4. Place in the oven for 5-10 minutes or less depending on your oven. Watch carefully, and remove as soon as they start to get crispy and slightly browned.

5. Serve immediately.

My overall review (for out first trial), both my husband and I enjoyed them but it was a little hard to watch them bake with my son running around. And you really have to watch them carefully or else they will burn. Ours got a little crispier than I would have liked but they still tasted good. I’ll do it again without my son there to watch and maybe replace the sea salt with garlic powder.
