Air-Fried Kale Chips

Air-Fried Kale Chips


Quick and easy to make kale chips in an air fryer. Keto, Paleo, THM-FP



1 bunch kale
avocado oil or olive oil in a spritzer
3 tablespoons nutritional yeast
1/4 teaspoon Himalayan salt


Rinse kale and dry it with paper towels or flour sack towel. I like to use kitchen shears to cut off the stem, but a knife will work too. Tear leaves into pieces around 3 inches long and in width. They will shrink as they cook so be sure to have a nice size to begin with.

Place in large bowl and spritz with oil about 10-12 times. Sprinkle with nutritional yeast and salt. Then use your hands to mix it up and massage in the oil and seasoning. Your hands will get messy, but that’s okay just wash them and you’re good to go.

Place half of the kale into the basket of your air fryer. Your air fryer should have come with a wire rack that fits inside the basket. Place that over the kale. This will keep it from blowing around as it becomes dry and lightweight.

Cook it at 350° for 5 minutes. Remove from air-fryer and place in a serving bowl. Repeat with second half of kale.

Enjoy! Make some more tomorrow.


If there are any pieces that you think are not crisp enough you can put those pieces back in and cook for one more minute. But keep in mind they will cook quick and could get a little burned, so keep an eye on them.

You can experiment with different spices to get make your favorite flavor. I sometimes add just a pinch of cayenne.
