If you haven’t tried a Baked Kale Chips Recipe yet, you are really missing out! When you are craving something crunchy and salty, this is a MUCH healthier alternative to potato chips, Pop Chips or popcorn.

I admit that I was a bit reluctant to believe that roasted kale would actually taste good, but I was pleasantly surprised and I’ve been a fan of baked kale chips ever since. I also love that these are kid-friendly veggies.

My 3 year old son gobbles these down, which says a LOT! If a picky toddler eats them, then they’ve got to taste good, right?

They are easy and cheap to make, and each 1 cup serving is just 1 Point. This means you don’t have to feel guilty about mindlessly eating them while watching TV at night :).

So the next time you are thinking about grabbing a bag of potato chips, just make this Baked Kale Chips Recipe instead and save yourself a ton of Weight Watchers Points, while still feeling satisfied.

    Hi!  I am new to weight watchers and still trying to figure out the points, especially how fruits and vegetables are “free.”  If Kale is a vegetable and if you are using minimal olive oil, wouldn’t this be a zero point snack?  Thanks for the info.  I can’t wait to try your recipe!! :-)

    • Melissa,

      Yes, it is minimal oil – one point or zero points won’t really matter!  Nobody joins WW because they ate too many kale chips., if you know what i mean!   WW Points Plus program is great – I’ve lost 60 lbs since April!  Good Luck to you – I hope you have the same success!  :)

  3. The ingredients say “sea” salt, but the directions say “seasoning” salt, so I’m not sure which to use!?!?

    Love kale chips.  I use an italian seasoning when baking to add a bit more flavour.  YUM!  Going to add it to my shopping list for the weekend  :)

  5. I finally tried them and they were great. I bought some more kale to make them again. I was really surprised but I love them :)

  6. I keep seeing people talk about kale chips on weight loss message boards.  I have to admit, they sound odd to me, but I’m intrigued!  I’m going to have to try some ASAP!
