I am obsessed with kale chips! I found this recipe on Meghan Telper's website. I've made them in the oven and also in the dehydrator and these are soooo yummy and healthy too! 1 bunch makes 4 small servings or 2 large depending on the kale lover involved.. I can eat a whole bunch myself, easily!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 1. Place all marinade ingredients in blender or food processor and process until smooth. Add water as needed just in order to blend. Remember: you will be drying this out again later.
  2. 2. With your hands, mix together the kale and marinade, massaging gently.
  3. 3. Transfer to dehydrator rack or parchment lined baking sheet.
  4. 4. Stick in your dehydrator on medium-high setting (I use 130 degrees) or in your oven on its lowest temp with the oven door left slightly open.
  5. 5. In the dehydrator it will take about 4-5 hours for them to reach the perfect crunchiness. Drying times will vary in oven.

i just made this recipe but had to cut a lot of corners as i did not have some of the ingredients. Instead of lemon juice i used apple cider vinegar, instead of tamari i used 1/2 maggi seasoning sauce (resembles a v concentrated soy sauce) and 1/2 worcestershire sauce and it turned out DELICIOUS! I'm waiting on the chips to come out but the marinade itself made me think i can re-purpose this sauce into a satay dip or something. So good! Thanks for sharing!

I love these chips! I used Sweet Spicy Cayenne Pepper coated almonds! Instead of the salt free almonds or almond paste. I used 1/2 cup before blended. This helps your metabolism. I also used the oven. I did use Curly Kale. Thanks for posting. If you can find these almonds, just use regular and add ground cayenne pepper and stevia.

Wish I had a dehydrator....think it would work better. Some of my kale got a bit over brown, but still tasted great. I loved the marinade, and loved the joy of finding a toasted almond on the occasional chip. Thanks for sharing!
