Crispy Kale Chips Recipe

Heart Healthy Recipe Diabetes Recipe Gluten Free Recipe

Looking for ways to add more calcium to your diet?  Forget the high-fat potato chips and dip into these crispy kale chips instead. One cup of kale contains 9% of your daily value of calcium. And this healthy snack has only 75 calories a serving.


    • 1 large bunch kale
    • 1 Tbsp olive oil
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 2 Tbsp finely grated Parmesan cheese, optional


    • Trim tough stems from kale and discard; cut large leaves into 2-inch pieces (leave any small leaves whole). Wash kale and dry thoroughly.
    • In a large bowl, drizzle kale with oil and sprinkle with salt. Mix very well to evenly coat.
    • On large rimmed baking sheets, arrange kale in a single layer. Do not overlap leaves. (Kale may need to be baked in batches.) Bake for 8 to 12 minutes, or until the leaves are crisp and slightly browned.
    • Let kale chips cool and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if using. Cooled kale chips can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
Yield: 8 servings
