Remember those Chocolate Chip Cookies from the other day? Well, you might also remember that I mentioned Homemade Kale Chips. Well, actually Diane my neighbor mentioned Kale Chips. She had seen them in the stores, but wasn’t sure that they were worth the money and I was wondering the same thing!

What do they taste like? Are they really worth $5.99 for a small bag?

Ummm, No…not really! So I made my own.

Kale Chips baked and seasoned with garlic, pepper and sea salt.

How to make Homemade Kale Chips:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Separate the bunch of kale.

Using a knife, remove the thick stem that runs down the center of each section.

They were actually really simple to make. I went with a basic Garlic/Sea Salt/Pepper mixture and they were…..interesting! Diane and I had both expected them to taste bitter, which thankfully they did not. She was not impressed with them, and was definitely glad that she had not spent the money to try them.

My bunch of Kale cost $1.99 and it almost filled a small zipper top bag. I already have a store brand Garlic/Sea Salt/Pepper mix and olive oil, so it is definitely less expensive to make it yourself. You also get to control the amount of seasonings! 🙂

  1. Hi Lisa, Kale chips are not for everyone but I have to say when I made them I wasn’t sure anyone would like them. I was surprised that the kids really enjoyed them, ate the entire batch then asked me to make them again. It’s just one of those ‘you never know’ foods.
    Thanks for sharing this with Foodie Friends Friday Snack Foods party this week. I’m pinning and sharing.

  2. I love kale chips. I have made my own as well as purchase the expensive ones. There is a vegan cashew cheese flavor that I love and is occasionally worth the price. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.

  3. I have never tried Kale chips BUT I need to. They sound delicious. Thank you so much for linking up to Saturday Dishes Snacks.
    I pinned it.
    Blessings,
