Kale Chips are a revolutionary snack - crispy and filled with the delicious salty addictive flavor of potato chips, but are at the same time loaded with nutrients and offering many health benefits. Kale chips are a low energy density food that one can eat a lot without adding many calories to their healthy diet. Kale is particularly high in vitamin B and has antioxidant properties.

If you have limited snacking options to be included in your healthy diet routine, kale chips are a perfect choice. They are very simple, take less time to make and can be seasoned with a variety of ingredients such as a simple sprinkle of sea salt, seasoned with pepper for a spicy snack. These are five such amazing Kale chips recipes.

      Funny seeing this article on kale, I have had to accompany my wife Ona diet to help with thyroid problems and kale has been a main feature of it. I must say it wasn’t my favourite but is getting to be more bearable just because it’s Krispy, I think it’s the only way to eat kale. Thanks for the article.

      I love kale chips, especially when flavourful spices are added. Thanks for sharing your recipes. I like the thought of adding nutritional yeast to the chips very much.

      I liked the sound of all of your recipes for kale chips. I just heard on a television cooking show how much nutritional yeast tastes like cheese. Will have to get some and use it on one of your kale chip recipes. Thanks!
