Happy Tasty Thursday!

This is one of my favorite recipes to date. Vince LOVES when I make these and
I even made them for my 13 year old sister and her friends last weekend.

These chips are a SUPER healthy alternative to potato chips that are loaded
with transfat, carbs and basically junk!

They are always a hit and completely satisfies your salt cravings.

    Wow!! I’m anxious to make these Flavia. I’ve heard alot of people rave about their tastiness. I know that nutritionally kale is an excellent food. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    I live in South Africa. Do we get Kale here also!!!

    This look delicious or if not what can i use in the place of kale



  • Pamela says:


    I will never eat another processed chip again.


  • Allie says:

    Can you clarify the serving size. Does 1 mean one leaf? Thanks

  • Lori says:

    Grapeseed Oil??? Never heard of that. Im trying to picture getting oil out of a grape:) Guess I need to check the grocery store because this does sound yummy.

    • Flavia says:

      lol….it is in the oil section of most grocery stores. For sure it will be in a natural health food store. You could melt some coconut oil and use that instead.

  • LIZZYB says:

    Would love to try this too,but also live in south africa:(. What now flavia? Never heard of Kale before.

      I have made similiar recipes to this with other dark green leafy vegetables – like collard greens, or mustard greens and even swiss chard. Just watch the more tender leaves so they don’t burn.

      To make this recipe cheesy and crazy yummy:
      blend one half a red onion, juice of a squeezed lemon, celtic salt to taste, 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds. Then mix the green leaves in this sauce. spread out leaves on baking sheet and bake at a low heat (like 170 degrees) for one – two hours. The low heat retains the enzymes and of course if you have a dehydrator that makes it better – dehydrate for 1-4 hours.

    This is my favorite snack ever! I like to add nutritional yeast, chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds 🙂

  • Pamela Hewett says:

    What does off steam mean? Presuming meaning steam the leaves? But for how long ? Thanks

  • Pamela Hewett says:

    Or should it read off Stem instead? 🙂

  • Hamsa says:

    Hi Flavia,
    I too love this guilt free snack! I make mine with a bit of olive oil massaged in and Parma, a vegan parmasean cheese alternative with heart healthy organic walnuts, nutritional yeast and himalayan salt… my fav is their chipolte cayenne flavor. I dehydrate mine at low temp over night to preserve all the valuable nutrients and enzymes that high heat destroys. Absolutely delicious!!

    • Louise says:


      What temperature do you put the oven on for overnight? Also, is Parma available easily?

      Thanks, looking forward to making this.


  • Heather C. says:

    I’m definitely a chips and salsa girl and these go great with homemade salsa. Absolutely wonderful

  • Kerstin says:

    A family member recommended me to your site. Thank you for the resources.

  • Elaine C says:

    Hi Flavia,

    Love this recipe…and many others kale recipe but we don’t have kale here in Malaysia. If we use the alternative root vegetables as mentioned earlier, how long is the baking time? Is it still the same?

    • Anna says:

      Hi Elaine,
      For the other root veggies check them after 10 minutes.. they may be done or could need a few more minutes. After 10 minutes check them every 5 minutes until ready 🙂
      All the best!

    I’ve tried this and absolutely love them! The receipe I’ve used is with olive oil. Is grape seed oil better for you?
