  • Air Fryer



  • Wash and dry your kale. If you are using unbagged kale, be sure to remove the stem and tear into pieces.
  • Add oil to the air fryer kale chips. Take a minute to gently massage the kale and the oil.
  • Season your air fryer kale chips with some seas salt. Add some pepper to your kale chips. Mix well.
  • Put the air fryer basket into the air fryer unit and cook those air fryer kale chips. I air fry 4 to 5 minutes at 375°F (190°C) Let cool and enjoy! (*note: be sure to check on the chips in the last 2 minutes to check for doneness)



Air Fryer Kale Chip Tips

  • You can use stemmed kale or pre-cut bagged kale. Either of those options work to make great air fryer kale chips. If you use the stemmed kale, remove the largest part of the stems.
  • You can vary the taste of your air fryer kale chips by changing up the spices! I have even added nutritional yeast and it was delicious.
  • Eat your air fryer kale chips immediately. These kale chips do not save like the ones you buy at the store.
  • If you wash your kale, be sure to dry the kale all the way before putting it into the air fryer.
  • If you have a Phillips Air Fryer or one that tends to have items “fly” in the air fryer. Be sure to put a trivet over top of the kale. You don’t want the kale to get stuck in the heating part and start to smoke.
