Easy Low Carb Keto Kale Chips Recipe

Making low carb Kale Chips in the oven is so easy and inexpensive! They make a great salty, crunchy snack and they are vegan and gluten free.

My son works in a grocery store and one of the things he loves to do is to show me new products when I come into the store. Recently when I was in the store, he showed me Kale Chips and wanted me to buy a bag. 

Even with my discount for being a family member, that little bag of Kale chips would have cost over 7 dollars!

So not that I want to argue with a 16 year old who wants to eat Kale, but I said no way, I will make you Kale Chips in the oven! And not only that, it will be the equivalent of 5 or 6 bags of Kale Chips for under 2 dollars!

My garden is bursting with Kale of several varieties and I have everything else I need in the pantry for this kale chip recipe.

Plus if my teenager wants to eat Kale, I’m all for it. The health benefits are endless, check out more about the health benefits of Kale here.

The Important Things you’ll need for homemade Baked Kale Chips

  • Kale (1 bunch)
  • Olive oil (2 tbsp)
  • Sea salt (to taste)
  • Nutritional yeast (1/4 cup) – this is the secret ingredient!
  • Parchment paper for baking the kale chips, vital to keep the kale pieces from sticking and burning.
  • Cookie Sheets

Note:  Nutritional Yeast is a non-active yeast that is high in fibre, protein and Vitamin B12. For vegetarians (which my son is) this may be their only source of B12. 

This is why I keep it around the house and use it for things like this. It is very tasty and versatile. For us Keto types, 1 tbsp of Nutritional Yeast has 1 net Carb, 1 g fat and 3 g Protein.

Instructions for Baked Kale Chips Recipe :

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Prepare cookie sheets with a layer of parchment paper.

  2. Break off the large stems and wash kale well in the sink. Pat dry with a towel.
  3. Once the kale is dry, use kitchen scissors to snip out any remaining spine. The spines can get very tough when baked. Place the kale leaves in a large bowl.
  4. For the kale chips seasoning, toss the kale with the olive oil, nutritional yeast and salt until all leaves are coated.
  5. Lay the Kale on the prepared cookie sheets in a single layer.
  6. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the kale leaves are completely dry and crunchy!

NOTE:  Keep a close eye on the kale chips because some varieties of Kale are very thin and could burn fast!

Variation:  One of my kids really likes this variation. For the kale chips seasoning, instead of the nutritional yeast, thin 2 tbsp almond butter with the 2 tbsp olive oil and toss the Kale leaves in that mixture. Strangely addictive!

What could be faster and easier than making these low carb Kale Chips in the oven? 

Well, I would say my son polished these things off faster than I made them. And now that he saw how easy they are, I’m sure he will be making them as well.

I hope you enjoy these Kale Chips as much as my son did!

Yield: Lots!

    I didn’t see cheese in the recipe

    • KetoWoman says:

      That is because it is Vegan and cheese free! But they taste cheesy and delicious because I used Nutritional Yeast flakes which are the the best! If you’ve never tried them you should!

  2. I am new to this diet. My rheumatologist gave me your website.

  3. Dharlan says:

    Oh my gosh, I’ve seen those and paid $5 for them! I am so making these. I have the nutritional yeast even.

    • KetoWoman says:

      You will never buy them again once you have these! And you can play with the recipe too. Sometimes I make them with tahini paste thinned out with some olive oil and lots of sea salt. So good!
