Air Fryer Kale Chips

  • 1 bunch kale, chopped (5-6 cups)
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • salt, to taste

Additional Seasoning Ideas

  • garlic powder, lemon pepper, nutritional yeast, parmesan, cumin, garam masala, soy sauce, etc.


  • Cut kale leaves to separate from stems.
  • Add kale to a bowl and drizzle with oil, salt, and any additional seasonings as desired. Massage all leaves well.
  • Preheat air fryer to 350°F (180°C).
  • Add massaged kale to air fryer in a single-ish layer. (It’s best to cook your chips in 2-3 batches, so the air fryer isn’t over-crowded.) If you have one, cover kale with a metal trivet/rack on top to keep the leaves in place while cooking. (This is optional, but recommended.)
  • Cook for 4-6 minutes, tossing halfway through, until crispy.
