These oven baked kale chips are a healthy snack or side dish made in 15 minutes!



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


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil for easy clean-up.
  • Use your hands to remove the kale leaves from the stems. Add the leaves to a salad spinner and wash thoroughly. Spin dry.
  • Gently pat the kale dry using paper towels or a clean dish towel. Place them in a bowl and pour over the coconut oil.
  • Use your hands to coat the kale with the oil.
  • Place the kale leaves on the baking sheets, trying to keep the leaves from overlapping. Sprinkle lightly with the salt.
  • 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.
  • Remove from the oven and serve immediately.


Store any leftovers in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
