Slightly sweet but still crispy green goodness. Use raw agave in place of the honey if you wish.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine the kale pieces, olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt in a resealable bag. Seal and massage the mixture for 3 minutes. The kale will be starting to break down a bit. Drizzle the honey over the mixture and again massage gently for another 3 minutes; the kale will now be half the bulk you started with.

  • Lay flat and even in a food dehydrator; cook at 115 degrees F (46 degrees C) until crispy, about 8 hours. Alternately, you can bake in an oven at 145 degrees F (65 degrees C) until crispy, 4 to 5 hours.

These were great!! My kids ate them as soon as I got them out of the oven. I baked them at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Nice and crisp! Read More

These taste nice but because there isn't a definitive amount of kale called for there is way too much oil on these. Read More

never liked kale until now! My friend advised me to set temperature in dehydrator to 130 and let it go about an hour longer. Awesome! Read More

Undeniably delicious! I don't have a food dehydrator, so I baked them in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes. The texture was ok - but not all were crispy, and they were starting to get browned on the edges. So next time I'll try them at a lower heat for a longer time, as suggested in the directions.

Delicious! I hadn't had kale in years, but picked some up the other day for something different. Unfortunately, it doesn't make enough at one time! I baked them on 350 for 10 minutes and then flipped them over and baked them for another 7 to get them nice and crispy. Read More

Tasty. I used coconut oil in place of olive oil and I didn't have any lemon. I would make these again and thanks for the recipe. Read More

A very easy and healthy snack especially when made in the dehydrator at suggested temp lets you keep all the nutrients. Normally I don't care for kale but these are yummy. Read More
