Kale chips are a standard snack in my house—easy to make and insanely addictive. I make this version when my family is looking for a bite that’s a little more flavorful than plain kale chips. Loaded with a deliciously smoky taste thanks to the combo of spices, they’re great to enjoy when watching a movie, doing work or just as an anytime snack. I would recommend eating them fresh out of the oven but you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days. Happy snacking.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 7 servings
  • • 2 medium bunches curly kale (about 6 to 7 cups or 8 ¾ oz leaves), stems removed and patted dry
  • • ¼ cup nutritional yeast
  • • 3 teaspoons garlic powder
  • • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • • 4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil



Preheat the oven to 325˚F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, combine the nutritional yeast, garlic powder, black pepper, smoked paprika, and kosher salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

In an extra-large mixing bowl, toss the kale leaves with the olive oil until all of the leaves are completely coated in the oil. Sprinkle over the seasoning mixture and toss again until evenly distributed. Divide the kale between the 2 baking sheets in a single layer. Bake the chips for 30 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through the cooking process. Allow to cool before serving.
