Dehydrator Kale Chips- Oil-Free

Have you tried kale chips? Because I have, and they’re fantastic!

They’re salty, crispy and nutritious. You can’t get much better than that! Too bad whenever I tried to make them in the oven I burnt them. And not just once or twice, I burnt them THREE times! 

I was about to give up on kale chips altogether when I realized I have a dehydrator. A dehydrator I don’t use enough. A dehydrator that will make foolproof kale chips…

Dehydrator Kale Chips

Crispy and delicious. These oil-free and healthy kale chips will keep you coming back for more!

Serves 4


  • 2 bunches of kale, organic if possible
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. Turn on dehydrator, set to 160 F
  2. Wash kale thoroughly and remove hard stems.
  3. Pat kale dry and tear into bit-sized pieces.
  4. Spread kale pieces out on dehydrator trays in single layers and sprinkle lightly with sea salt.
  5. Dehydrate for 3-4 hours, or until crispy.
  6. Enjoy!

I like the combination of redbor kale (left) and siberian kale (right). I especially like layering my dehydrator with these kale so it looks pretty while it dries: 

And there you have it, my new favourite snack and a healthy AND foolproof way to make it!
