Baked BBQ Kale Chips (Gluten-Free)


  • 1 large bunch fresh kale
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.

Wash kale and allow to dry completely. Remove the leaves from the stems and tear into bite-size pieces.

Lay kale evenly on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Place in the oven and cook for about 25 minutes or until crispy. It might take more or less time depending on your oven and if the kale was completely dry after washing.

Meanwhile, mix the chili powder, paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Taste and adjust to your liking.

Once kale is crispy, remove from oven and place in a large bowl. Immediately sprinkle with desired amount of seasoning (I used about 3/4 and then added more as necessary). Shake the bowl around so the kale is completely coated. Enjoy!
