Hello, Smart Moms!
I’m so excited for today’s post.
That’s right, ladies. Freaking kale chips.
I bought some sriracha kale chips last Saturday, and they were so good. I know some of you might be thinking I’m crazy (especially those of you who dislike the veggie family), but trust me. Even your kids won’t be able to get enough of this highly nutritious and delicious snack.
So much better (less calories, fat, and sodium) than potato chips.
I’ve had my kids begging me to make more since we finished off the first batch a few days ago.
This post is going to be sweet and simple, and you’ll be happy to see how easy they are to make.
Follow this super easy recipe I found online!
- Cooking spray
- 1 small bunch kale (1/2 lbs.)
- 1 tbs olive oil
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Grease/spray two baking trays.
- Wash and dry kale thoroughly.
- Tear the kale leaves from their stems and spine and cut/tear them down to bite-size portions (2-3 in. wide).
- Put the kale in a large bowl and drizzle oil over them.
- Sprinkle garlic powder and salt as desired.
- Use your hands to mix in the seasonings and oil evenly.
- Spread the kale over the baking sheets. You want them all out in a single layer.
- Bake about 12-15 minutes or until they are crisp and the edges are browned slightly.
(This recipe contains about 60 calories. Yay!)
These are amazing.
My son had the great idea of using them in his hamburger like pickles or chips. They were really tasty in that. You can also sprinkle them over a salad or in a soup. Or just eat them like chips!
Another really cool things is that you can play around with your seasonings too.
You can create sriracha, ranch, barbeque, or whatever-you- please flavored kale chips. We are going to be trying ranch here pretty soon as a family.

Guys, I am so picky about my BBQ sauce. I have tried so many, made my own, and finally, I found the absolute best sauce that has ever been made by human hands! I was in Texas, visiting some family, and they pulled out this Salt Lick BBQ, and I just about died. Annnd since I don’t live in Texas, the blessed internet has saved my life! It’s a little pricey, but I get it in bulk, and my mouth, and family, could not be happier when the recipe calls for some barbecue!!
