Oven Baked Kale Chips

These homemade Oven Baked Kale Chips with coconut oil are such an easy side dish or snack. They’re crunchy, healthy, and delicious! Make this recipe for your next crunchy snack. Both kids and adults love these.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 1 large bunch curly kale, green or purple
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  2. Use your hands to remove the kale leaves from the stems. Add the leaves to a salad spinner and wash thoroughly. Spin dry.
  3. Gently pat the kale dry using paper towels or a clean dish towel. Place them in a bowl and pour over the coconut oil.
  4. Use your hands to coat the kale with the oil.
  5. Place the kale leaves on the baking sheets, trying to keep the leaves from overlapping. Sprinkle lightly with the salt.
  6. Bake at 350°F for 8 minutes. Flip the kale chips and return them to the oven. Bake for approximately 5 more minutes, or until the leaves start to become brown around the edges. Be careful not to burn.
  7. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.


  1. Store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  2. There are three main varieties of kale that I usually see at the store: curly kale, baby kale, and lacinato or dino kale. I only recommend using curly kale for making homemade kale chips. The other varieties really aren’t ideal because the leaves won’t hold onto the oil and seasonings as well. 
  3. You can feel free to get creative with your flavorings or seasonings. Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, or smoked paprika would all be delicious! Or, you can use a flavored salt like Garlic Salt.  
  4. If you want another cooking alternative, try my recipe for Air Fryer Kale Chips.
