  • 1 bunch fresh kale   I use curly kale, but you can use lacinato kale too
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive or avocado oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
  • salt to taste


  • Preheat your oven to 350℉ and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper (if desired) for easy clean up. If you don't have a large baking sheet, use two smaller baking sheets.
  • Wash the kale and thoroughly dry it. Cut out the hard stem and rip/cut leaves into smaller pieces.
  • Place cut kale in a large mixing bowl and drizzle with oil and salt. Toss with your hands or a spoon to ensure all the kale is thoroughly coated on both sides.
  • Arrange the kale on the prepped baking sheet, being sure not to crowd the kale. Crowded kale will steam instead of crisp up.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and place bake into the oven for 3-5 more minutes. Keep an eye on them, as every oven is a bit different and these chips can easily burn.
  • Remove from oven and allow the kale chips to cool for about 10 minutes. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
  • Enjoy! Kale chips are best day of, but once leftovers are totally cool, place them in an air-tight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.
