Kale Chips – Best Made at Home

A few months ago my husband gave me a Philips Air Fryer (affiliate link) for my birthday. Despite having been taught by my mother that appliances don’t count as presents, kitchen appliances are among my most favorite things. I have in the past asked for a new refrigerator, a new oven, a blender, and a stand mixer as presents – and loved them all!! This new gadget is no exception.

One of my favorite things to make with the air fryer is kale chips – oh, so much better than any you might purchase at the health food store!

Kale Chips


4 cups of kale, washed, stems removed, broken into pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ teaspoon salt

Combine the kale and oil in a large bowl. Use your hands to massage the oil into the kale and let it sit for at least an hour.



Sprinkle the kale with salt. Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees F. Add the prepared kale into the fryer basket. “Fry” (you’re really baking) for 2 minutes. Remove the basket and mix the chips. Fry for 1-2 minutes more until crispy.


While I used the air fryer to make these, you can easily bake them in the oven: Spread the kale in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Ten to fifteen minutes at 375 degrees F should do it!

I have actually read a lot of your blog posts in the last hour. I really enjoy what you are doing here. (And as a writer of fantasy novels, I'm enjoying looking at different aspects of that when you go through them in blog post). And truly, I love world-culture building
