'Cheesy' Kale Chips

Because homemade always tastes better.

You can buy kale chips everywhere now, but nothing beats making them yourself. Not only do they taste better, but you know exactly what's in them! If the "cheesy" flavor doesn't do it for you, try cayenne pepper or fennel seeds in place of the nutritional yeast.

Total Time:
Level: Easy
Serves: 4


  • 3½ oz. kale, washed, thoroughly dried, and cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 tsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Toss the kale in the oil and yeast flakes until well coated. Spread out on a baking sheet and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, turning over every so often, until crisp and golden at the edges.
  2. These are great as a snack, or used as a healthy alternative to croutons on soup. Store in an airtight container for up to three days.
