I’ve heard about kale chips from a number of people. They talked about how good they are. How easy to make. How you just want to keep eating them.
I was skeptical. Very skeptical.
In fact, I bought kale once and let it go bad in the fridge before I tried making them. Finally, I decided I would give it a go.
They are good. I don’t have the urge to keep eating them. But my youngest son did. He loved them. This is my pickiest kid. The list of things he won’t eat is pretty long. But he loved kale chips. He keeps asking me to make them again.
Wow! I didn’t expect that. When a kid asks for veggies, that’s a good (and rare) thing.
I used my homemade seasoned salt to flavor them. You can use salt and pepper or any other seasoning you like. Here’s what you’ll need:
Kale Chips with Homemade Seasoned Salt
- olive oil
- homemade seasoned salt or other seasoning
- Clean kale and dry.
- Tear stems from kale and break into bite-sized pieces.
- Drizzle olive oil over kale and stir to coat. Only a light coating is needed.
- Sprinkle with homemade seasoned salt.
- Arrange in single layer on oiled baking sheet.
- Bake 350 for 15 minutes, till crisp but not burnt.
- Cool and eat.
I made kale chips a couple of weeks ago and really liked them. I used your seasoned salt. It is quick, easy and healthy. It would be a good after school snack.

You can use seasoned salt, but it contains MSG, so sea salt might be a better choice.

I never in a million ba-jillion years would have thought of this, but I do believe I’ll try it. Maybe as a side dish with a sandwich-ey meal.

I started making kale chips several months ago and was surprised at how well the kids loved them! I probably make them twice a week now and my 7,11,16 and 18 yr. old eat every last piece. I drizzle with olive oil, salt and a bit of garlic powder. Bake at 400 and we like them with a bit of brown around the edges 🙂 Another favorite is roasted broccoli!
U can even put them in a dehydrator instead of the oven to get the same results.
These look delicious! I can’t wait to try them 🙂
Where is your recipe for the homemade seasoning salt? I would love to have it, if you please. Thank you. Joyce

Kale chips are wonderful! I use sea salt, a little garlic, a little olive oil, and some lemon juice on mine. So delicious and a guilt-free snack!
