THIS WAS GREAT!  I was a little skeptical about it really working, but they really were crunchy like chips.  They sort of melted in your mouth as well.  I think I had to keep them in the oven a little longer than the recipe said, but each oven is different.  FUN TO EAT.  Just like potato chips - you can't eat just one.  Try them!


Delish!  These are fantastic.  I only sprayed the pan a bit so they wouldn't stick and used very little salt.  Lots of kale flavor and an amazing crunch that will satisfy any chip craving.  Hurray!


Wow!!  I devoured these and I have more in the oven right now.  Yes, they are pretty stinky when cooking and very strongly flavored (it's worse when they're overbaked).  I tried them with olive oil and crazy mixed up salt (yum!  but I think I used too much, too oily) and then again without oil and with a salt-free garlic/onion/spice mix (oh yum!  slightly less crispy without the oil?) .  So it's a good thing hubby isn't here right now or he'd pass out from my stink.  But soooo goood and perfect texture.


I was really excited to try these, but i didn't like them at all!  The smell filled the whole down stairs of my house.  I couldn't get past the smell to enjoy the bite that I tried.  And it left an aftertaste.  They did crisp right up like they were supposed to  and they looked alright.  I guess it's just a taste preference thing and I didn't prefer the taste.  oh well.


These were awesome!!! I didn't think they would have so much flavor, but they really did. I used the cooking spray with sea salt and pepper.


Thanks these are awesome.  I will never eat kale any other way again...
A few tips for those who don't eat them on the spot--when you store them in a container they tend to lose a little crispiness.  Also, if you try to store them in your desk drawer for a few hours, watch out when you open it.  P-U!!
I'm going to experiment with other veggies and see if I can get the same results.


unbelievably delicious. i was skeptical at first, but honestly, these are so great! i oiled my pan with coconut oil, and didn't oil the chips, just sprinkled with provencale herbamare...they are still in the oven, but i had to have a taste halfway through, so i know the finished product will be amazing.
thanks for the recipe, i'll be making this often!


These were surprisingly good!!! All I put on them was seasalt.  Didn't spray the "chips" with olive oil, just the pan and baked away.  I found that some of the tougher bits took longer to cook so I took the done chips out and left the rest in for a few more minutes.  I ate an entire bunch of kale while watching a movie and it was delicious.  Much healthier than greasy potatoe chips.  Possibly this would go great with veggie burgers and oven-fries.
