  • 1 bunch kale, (about 1pound)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Set out two ungreased baking sheets with sides. Rinse kale under cold running water and pat dry with a paper towel or dish towel. Wrap kale in another layer of fresh paper towel or another dry dishtowel—kale must be dry in order to crisp up. Squeeze and unroll. Roughly chop leaves and discard stems or save to add to your favorite soup recipe.
  • In a large bowl, toss leaves with olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper. Transfer leaves to the baking sheets, spreading them out in an even layer, so they do not touch. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice, until crisp. Serve immediately.

  1. Jennifer, this looks delicious.

    I am always looking for healthy new options for things to eat. This is definitely going to make it on my list.

    I like the fact that it is salty and crunchy. What a great alternative to chips.
    Thank you for adding the nutritional information and the weight watchers points. I bet a lot of people will find that to be very useful.

    You even added what to pair with it to make a full meal. That is wonderful!

    Have you ever tried to use these with a dip? Can they hold up to that or do they fall apart?

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
