These kale chips are incredibly easy to make and have the crunchy texture of crisps. They are a perfect Paleo snack that is both healthy and delicious. Enjoy the tangy flavour and satisfying crunch with this simple recipe.

    When I first saw kale chips, I thought that I was going to hate them.

    While I didn't fall in love instantly, I have since become a bit of a kale chip junkie.

    Will RT the recipe 🙂

    To Denise: I've made sweet potato chips — you need to slice them 1/8th inch thick (or less). Salt and dehydrate. They will take longer than kale chips. Watch them (you can use the oven or a dehydrator, and timings will differ).

    But I think my favorite may well be zucchini chips. Again 1/8th inch slices.

    As for kale, I am looking forward to trying that, but no decent bundles of kale in my neighborhood right now.

    We make ours with a dehydrator. We grow an enormous amount of kale and make a ton of chips using a dehydrator. I found oven-chipping demanded too close attention so I tried the dehydrator. IT's great, you never get those over-baked nasty-tasting few chips that get brown. We use your process – tear into largish pieces, toss well with olive oil (be generous with it), and then I season it with a mix of ground spices: roasted garlic, brewers yeast, parmesan cheese, sometimes steak seasoning, sometimes tuscan seasoning – whatever strikes your fancy. If my seasoning mix doens't contain a lot of salt, I throw some in. Once the chips are all coated in oil, I throw in a bunch of the seasoning and toss again to coat well. Spread in a single layer on the dehydrator and run at 130 degrees for 6 hours or so, until the chips are all nicely crunchy. We store for winter use in freezer bags and store the bags in a new metal garbage can with a snug lid to keep them dry and crisp.
