For that salty craving!
Keto kale chips are a miracle! From a tough, bitter leaf, kale turns into a delicate and crunchy chip before your very eyes. They’re simple to make (just like all our quick bites!). We used a few spices and parmesan cheese to “crust” these bad boys, but you can choose anything you want! Other variations include coating them in onion powder, paprika, nutritional yeast, chili powder, tequila salt, etc. You can customize these any way you want!
A few points to mention before we begin!
Water: after washing your kale, make sure to dry them very well. If the kale is too wet with water when going into the oven, it will steam instead of bake.
Size: your chips should be ripped slightly larger than you’d normally like them to be. They tend to shrink a bit in the oven. You can also choose to include the stem or to rip the leaves off and discard the stem. Rami likes the stem; I don’t. So we do half and half.
Spacing: leave enough room between your chips so air can circulate around them and get them crispy on all sides. You should be able to still see the cookie sheet! If you overcrowd them, the chips will likely come out soggy :(. If you need to, make these in two batches! Or invest in a few cookie sheets and throw in two batches at once!
Cook time: Until you test these out for yourself, you might want to keep an eye on your kale chips. All ovens are different and your altitude plays a big part in baking. We started our kale chips at 350°F at 8 minutes and reached in and gently poked some chips. If they’re still soft, let them bake for another 2 minutes. Repeat this process until they’re slightly brown and hard to the touch. You’ll know you’ve over-baked them if they start turning a lighter brown (funnily enough) and start to wilt and flatten down to the cookie sheet. The kale chips should retain their curliness throughout the bake.
Once you make a batch of kale chips once, you will see how easy they are to prepare and you will likely start craving them all the time- that crunch is addictive! One thing to note is that kale chips are best (ad crunchiest) when enjoyed within a day or two of baking. The kale tends to soften after a few days. However, don’t worry, if your chips get soft, just spread them back out on a baking sheet and pop them back into the oven for about 5 minutes. They will crisp right up!
