  • 5 ounces raw kale, washed and dried (about 6 cups) tough stems removed, if desired. Use bagged, chopped kale if desired.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese or more to taste


  • If you're using whole kale leaves, chop or slice the kale into about 2-inch pieces.
  • Place the kale in a mixing bowl. Pour the olive oil over, and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.
  • Gently toss the kale and massage the salt and garlic powder into the kale. Make sure everything is coated with the oil.
  • Place the kale into the air fryer basket. Set the temperature to 300 °F, and the timer for 9 minutes.
  • Open the air fryer and toss the kale with tongs after about 5 minutes. Check it as it gets close to the finishing point, to make sure it's not overcooked.
  • Empty the cooked kale chips into the mixing bowl, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and let cool for about 2 minutes.


This will cook down to about 2 cups.
