Air-Fried Kale Chips

Perfectly crispy, melts in your mouth, and flavorful way to eat kale


  • Air Fryer


  • 3 cups curly kale torn into pieces no larger than ~1.5 inch squared (you can use a bag of chopped kale to make it easier, just take out the ribs)
  • 1 T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/16 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/16 tsp salt
  • 1/16 tsp onion powder
  • 1/16 tsp cayenne optional


  • Mix the kale, oils, spices in a large bowl and massage a little - it will shrink down a bit which allows you to put more in at a time!
  • Spray and preheat to 375 degrees the basket in the air fryer
  • Add in all the kale, and cook for 5-7min, shaking every 3 min. Watch the kale and taste test to see how crispy you like it and to avoid burning.
