This Ranch Kale Chips recipe turns regular kale chips into a delicious, can’t-eat-just-one snack, usually just 3 ingredients. The healthy alternative to your favorite food!

I think we all know someone who is obsessed with kale. The person who drinks kale smoothies for breakfasts, eats kale salad for lunch and a side of kale for dinner.

While I’ve never been that kale-crazy, I understand why some people are, as the health benefits of kale are outstanding.

Make sure you PIN Ranch Kale Chips!

Kale is one of the most nutrient dense foods, loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin K (actually one of the best sources of vitamin K out there!), and many other health benefits.

I’m not such a big fan of kale that I want to eat it for every meal but I think we can all use a little of those health benefits in our lives.

In the last few years, as the kale craze has struck the United States, one recipe has been repeated more and more – kale chips.

How to make kale chips is actually pretty basic. The general idea is to simply tear up some kale leaves, toss them with olive oil, and bake.

Regular kale chips recipes can be quite boring – especially if you’re not a huge fan of kale. I find the flavor to be a good compliment to salads and smoothies but am not a big fan of kale flavor on its own.

To make my kale chips, I decided to get creative and add one of my favorite seasonings – ranch. But I also made my own homemade ranch seasoning! Also great on Air Fryer Chickpeas. Yum!

This Ranch Kale Chips recipe is quite honestly the best and easiest solution for how to make kale chips, especially for people who don’t like kale as the ranch flavor balances out the kale.

If you’re someone who likes to snack, Ranch Kale Chips are a great alternative to having a bag of chips or another treat lying around the house.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Rinse kale leaves and dry well. Any residual water will impact the speediness of this process. If you have a salad spinner that will work well. Tear leaves from ribs in 2-3 inch pieces.
  • Toss dry kale leaves with extra virgin olive oil in a large mixing bowl. Try to evenly cover all leaves.
  • Line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil and spread out kale leaves in a single layer. Sprinkle dry Ranch seasoning mix over kale.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove, turn and return for an additional 15 minutes. Turn oven off completely, but allow kale to remain in the oven until it has fully cooled and fully crisped.
  • Store in an airtight plastic bag or container. Enjoy!

    These are great!!! I have tried to make kale chips before and they were so bad no one would eat them. I am making your recipe right now for the 2nd time as requested by my husband (who most often would rather be eating a hot dog than anything green)!

    Wow! These were insanely good! I wish I had found your recipe earlier. Hands down, you have the BEST cooking temperature. I’ve tried several kale recipes and they always turned out too crispy, for me. Their temps were always 300 degrees. Yours was the lowest temperature I’ve seen, but let me tell you, it’s the PERFCET way to do these, so they don’t come out with any browned, super crisp edges! I followed your directions to a T. And when I pulled my Ranch kale chips out of the oven, they were delicious! They were crisp, but not too crisp and not burned crisp. They were just right! Thank you so much for sharing your recipe! The secret, is the lower temp, and turning. You knocked it out of the park, with this one! 🙂 Beth

    I am late to the kale chip story as well. My daughter requested I stock up on Keto friendly snacks, so I thought I would give this a try. I have to cook another bunch because half of this one is gone. I love them!!
    If you are looking for a tasty AND healthy treat, this is your best start. I’m going to make broccoli treats and so much more. This was Very successful. Thank you so much!
