Skinny Snack: Kale Chips!

Delicious, Super Healthy, & Beautifying Recipe

By Alya Alyssa Kattan

Hi Guysssssssssss!!!

Has anyone tried kale chips?  OMG they are soooo good!!!  I am addicted to them thanks to Huda Beauty! I tried them a while back for the first time at her place and got hooked.  I have them anytime I am craving chips.  I love eating them because I can eat a bowl full without feeling guilty and gaining any weight.

Do I dare say that kale chips are better than potato chips!  For me they are because they offer so much more than just taste.  They are not only crispy and flavorful but they are also super healthy & beautifying

Try out the below delicious recipe!  It will help with your potato chip cravings. 

Sweet n’ Spicy Kale Chips


  • 1 large bag pre-washed, pre-cut kale (1 large bunch kale can be used, but you must cut out stems, cut leaves into 2-3 inch long pieces, wash and dry very well in a salad spinner. If there is water on the leaves, they will steam instead of crisp.)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (leaves should be very lightly and evenly coated)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar to taste
  • 2-3 teaspoons chili flakes to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste (I like kosher or course sea salt)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Set aside.
  3. In large bowl, toss kale with olive oil just to coat, massaging oil gently into leaves with hands.
  4. Place kale on baking sheet in single layer and bake for 10-12 minutes. When kale chips turn a bright emerald green and feel crisp to the touch, remove them immediately. They will burn easily so don’t let them turn brown. If burnt, they will be bitter.
  5. While chips are baking, in small bowl combine sugar, chili flakes, and salt.
  6. When crisp, remove from oven, sprinkle with spice mixture, toss in bowl and serve immediately. They are divine while warm, but you can keep them in an airtight container for one to two days. Do not refrigerate.

      Hi honey, just wanted to let you know that Spinney’s doesn’t always carry kale. If you can’t find it there, try Organic Food and Cafe. Xx ❤ Muuahhh
