The Perfect Crispy Kale Chip Recipe

Crispy kale in a dish | via


  • 1 bunch curly kale
  • 23 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/8 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp onion salt
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1/8 tsp sea salt
  • Parchment paper for baking sheet(s)


  1. Set oven to 395 degrees.
  2. Rinse kale and break into small pieces. Remove excess water from kale using a paper towel or napkin, if necessary.
  3. Pour kale pieces into a large mixing bowl.
  4. In separate dish, combine coconut oil, seasonings, and salt. Stir well.
  5. Pour coconut oil over kale chip pieces and stir with a fork until kale is evenly coated.
  6. Line baking sheet(s) with parchment, and then lay pieces of kale on the parchment, one by one, making sure not to overlap kale pieces.
  7. Bake in over for approximately 7-10 minutes, turning baking sheet one time in the middle of baking time. (I usually do a 180-turn after about 4-5 minutes).


15 minutes of baking time assumes two batches baked at about 7 1/2 minutes each. For extra crispiness, you may need to bake each batch for about 10 minutes.
