Honey Infused Kale Chips – Easy 5 Ingredient Recipe
What to do with all of the kale from our garden
Chomp down on some healthy kale chips. This is my go-to recipe when the garden has gotten out of control growing our Kale, and I want to use them up before they are no good. It is quick and easy; it is also a great thing to have the kids help out with. I use just five ingredients in this recipe, but if honey is not your jam, remove it, and you have an easy four-ingredient recipe. I find the honey adds just the right amount of sweetness to this earthly leaf, and it makes it that much harder to stop myself from eating a whole bowl of these chips.
Here’s what our Kale looked like just a few short weeks ago. Now it has exploded, and the leaves are as big as my head! If using fresh Kale from your garden, I suggest picking and cooking within an hour; otherwise, the leaves start to wilt, so don’t harvest until you are ready to make these. Grocery store kale should be fine for a few days. I have yet found the right way to keep my fresh Kale perky after harvesting, so if you have any ideas, please let me know in the comments. 😁
So, once you have your Kale, make sure you give them a good rinse, especially if they’re coming straight out of the garden. We don’t want any hitchhikers or dirt getting in the mix. Take time to dry each leaf well so they can crisp up a bit when you put them in the oven.
Now the fun part…
No need to cut your pieces. Just start ripping into what you think are suitable bit sizes for you. They will shrink a bit but not that much. As you go, place the “chips” onto a cookie sheet. You can line with tin foil if you would like, but I feel they get a better crisp without, but hey, that’s just me, you do you❤. Don’t worry if they overlap a bit; they will be just fine.
Make your kale chip glaze
Once you have them all laid out, you can then create your glaze that will be sprinkled on top. Now, I tend to wing it a bit when cooking, so for this, I would go by taste versus worrying about exact measurements. I did about 3 (olive oil) to 1 (honey) for my mixture, stir, and sit for about 10 minutes. If you make your mixture before creating your chips, then you should be all set by the time you’re done laying them out on cookie sheets.
After it has set a bit, mix again. If you have a pastry or basting brush, use this to sprinkle the mixture over the kale chips. No worries if you don’t, a fork will work just as well. Don’t worry about saturating each leaf. After you have sprinkled the olive oil and honey mixture, go back and add your pepper and garlic salt. Now those babies are ready to get cooking. I set my oven to 300*, and I would suggest only using the top rack (top two slots). First go around I had one on top and one on the bottom; well the bottom one cooked way too fast and was mostly a burnt mess, no Bueno! Check after 6 minutes just to make sure they are not cooking too quickly. Give them another 4 minutes, and they should be ready to come out. Once they are out and still a bit warm a lightly go and sprinkle a bit of table salt. Let them cool for about 10 minutes, and you have yourself a delicious treat. Enjoy ☺
Wishing you love, light and inner peace babes ✌🌈✨💜

I remember the first time I tried kale chips, I thought it would be gross. But turns out, they’re really good!
ooo yum! I have never been successful with kale chips, but perhaps it’s time to try again!
I always hear about kale chips but I’ve never had them. Thanks for the recipe.
I live kale chips.. I can’t wait to try your recipe! Honey infused sounds amazing! I pinned for later! Thank you
This sounds great…I’ve had plain salted kale chips but this sounds better!
That’s some great-looking kale you harvested! I’m trying to imagine the honey with the garlic – it would be something like putting it into a salad dressing, perhaps. And I usually use my dehydrator for kale chips – if you have any thoughts on that I’d love to know.
These look yummy and healthy! I’ve never had home made kale chips before, but I’d love to try them.
What a great way to get your veggies in.
Never thought of this for kale, but I bet that it makes it taste better!
Your kale looks so fresh. These sound amazing!
Oh my goodness. I LOVE kale chips, and these look amazing! So going to make them. Thank you for the recipe!!
These sound and look delicious, thanks for sharing this simple healthy snack!
This sounds really good and easy. Will have to try. Also want to try to grow some kale!
This is a great way to use that extra Kale! Great recipe!
I have made kale chips before, but only the “plain” kind (which were still delicious). These look way better and easy to do!
Haven’t had kale chips for awhile. Made some when they first became popular, but haven’t since then and never with honey. I am intrigued – these sound delicious. Thanks for sharing.
Clever idea for making them that bit “extra”.
Kale chips so so good!
My kiddos actually really like kale chips! We will have to give these a go!
Yumm! I love kale chips, but haven’t made them in so long. Thanks for the reminder!
I love kale chips and make them frequently!
This sounds wonderful so I pinned it. I’m moving next month so I’m gathering recipes I want to make after I get settled.
Good luck on the move!
These look amazing! I’ll try them soon.
I’ll definitely y keep this for when I do my whole 30 in Jan. Thanks!
