Number of Servings: 3 


  • 4 oz fresh Kale
  • 1 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder (optional)
  • Parchment paper


  1. Preheat oven to 275 degrees. Wash and dry Kale, then cut out and discard center stems.
  2. Place ½ of Kale in the center of a paper towel and fold over to dry
    the Kale and to help flatten the Kale to make chips. Repeat with the other half.
  3. Cut the Kale into small pieces (2 inch diameter) to make about 40-45 chips.
  4. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and place Kale on a single layer; using
    a pastry brush, dab a small amount of olive oil on each piece, then sprinkle with salt (and garlic powder). Bake 20 min until crisp but not brown.
