Kale Chips

Top o' the mornin' to ya... because it's St. Patrick's day. And because Noodle has a party today. And because we are supposed to bring green treats to share. And because I'm the nerdy mom who brings healthy snacks...

Kale chips! (I love kale. It's one of my most favorites)

And everyone is right... They. Are. Addicting.

At this point I'm wondering if there will be any to take to Noodle's party. Just sayin.

Hope you all have a fabulous green holiday!

1 bunch kale
About 2-3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Wash and dry your kale leaves. Make sure they are ultra dry. I washed them the night before.

Separate leaves from stems and discard stems. Tear leaves into manageable 'chip' size pieces.

Put pieces in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil. Toss to ensure all leaves are appropriately coated.

In a separate smaller bowl, combine garlic, paprika and salt. Sprinkle this mixture over leaves and toss again to combine. I used my hands.

Spread onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Open oven and give them a delicate toss then bake for another 2-3 minutes.

Try to let them cool before you eat. Try. It won't be easy.

Probably by the fistful.




  1. Healthy and delicious! Have fun at the party. :)

  2. Teri... they were so good! The kids weren't too sure but the staff were happy to have something healthy :)

    E... yum! have you made them before?

  3. Hi, just wondering why at the end of the recipes where you have icons there isn't one for 'printing'....? that would be soooo helpful! Thanks for lots of good recipes & ideas! God bless....


  4. Hi Susan, Great idea! Thank you and I will look in to it :)
