  1. Remove the leaves from the stems of the kale and place them in a medium bowl.
  2. Add the olive oil, nutritional yeast, salt, and pepper. Use your hands to massage the toppings into the kale leaves.
  3. Pour the kale into the basket of your air fryer and cook on 390 degrees F for 6-7 minutes, or until they are crispy.
  4. Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. If you are using a small air fryer, then cook your kale chips in two batches. You don’t want to overfill the air fryer basket.
  2. You can use other types of kale besides curly kale, but curly kale works best.
  3. Store your cooked kale chips in a zip-top bag for up to 5 days.
