Spicy Kale Chips

1 bunch lacinato kale, stems removed
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp red pepper flake
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 300°. Cut kale leaves into chip size segments, and set aside in a large bowl. Add olive oil, spices, salt and pepper. Toss thoroughly to coat. Working in batches, roast the kale one layer at a time on a baking sheet for 14 minutes, until crispy.

Seem like a smart tasty way to get some extra kale into your system. Better try this.

I have been dying to try and make kale chips. Maybe this is the push I needed to get it done! Looks yummy!

These look delicious! mmm making them spicy would taste amazing!

I absolutely LOVE Kale chips! I usually buy them from the farmers’s market but I have to give this recipe a try!


I put mine in the oven for only 5 minutes and they came out perfect! They continued to cook on the baking sheet after I took them out and they were incredibly scrumptious. I added a little paprika and sea salt to mine. Next time I’ll try just vinegar and sea salt. We’ll see what happens.

This is so much more tasty and cost efficient than buying those $5 bags of Kale Chips.


These are delish! I’ve started making grab bags for snacks for my husband and I and was wondering if these should be refrigerated after cooking or can be left out in the zip lock bags ? Thanks so much :)


Do you mean Fahrenheit or Celsius?
