How To Make Maple Sesame Kale Chips

Kale chips were all the rage back then, and this recipe is another way to enjoy them with a medley of flavors- partly sweet, slightly salty, & a bit spicy.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 40 minutes



  • 5cupscurly kale,gently packed, stripped from stalk, torn into pieces a little larger than bite size, rinsed and dried
  • 1tbspolive oil
  • ¼tspsalt
  • 1tbspmaple syrup
  • tspcayenne pepper
  • 3tbspsesame seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place the kale leaves in a large bowl. Using a few paper towels, blot the kale to dry thoroughly. Add the olive oil and salt; massage the kale with hands until all of the leaves are well coated.

  3. Add the maple syrup, cayenne pepper and sesame seeds and toss until evenly coated. Most of the sesame seeds should stick to the leaves.

  4. Place the kale in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25 to 28 minutes, until the leaves are completely crisp but not browned. Keep a close eye on it; the chips will go from perfectly cooked to burnt quickly.

  5. Taste and add more salt if needed. Let the kale chips cool on the baking sheet, then serve.
