Kale chips can be a great snack choice for those looking to improve their overall health and well-being. They are low in calories, high in nutrients, and easy to make, making them a great option for busy people on the go.

Making kale chips is easy and requires only a few simple ingredients. All you need is fresh kale, some oil, and your choice of seasonings. In this recipe, we add some depth using Cumin, Paprika, and Garlic. I love this recipe because baking them in the oven is a healthier alternative to frying, but they taste just as good!


  • 2 large bunches kale, tough stems removed and torn into chunks
  • 1½ - 2 T. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T. smoked paprika
  • 2 t. garlic powder
  • 2 t. ground cumin
  • Sea salt, to taste



Preheat oven to 325°F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat. Set aside.


Wash kale leaves and dry completely before adding to a large mixing bowl. Drizzle with a little olive oil and toss to combine while rubbing each leaf with your fingers to make sure it is evenly coated in oil.


Sprinkle smoked paprika, garlic powder, and cumin on top of kale and season with sea salt, to taste. Toss until evenly combined.


Arrange seasoned kale leaves on prepared baking sheet in a single layer, being careful to not overcrowd them. Work in batches, if necessary.


Place baking sheet in pre-heated oven and bake for 5-6 minutes before rotating the pan. Bake for another 1-2 minutes. Do not overcook. Remove chips from oven when they are still mostly green, with only a tiny bit of brown developing.


Let chips sit for 2-3 minutes to crisp up a bit more before serving. Enjoy!
