Hi Bold Bakers!

I know it sounds crazy but I love to get creative with my microwave. You guys have seen me work microwave magic with all kind of mug recipes from Mug Pizza to Mug Brownie but I bet you have never seen anything quite like this! These Microwave Kale Chips are a real game changer as far as microwave recipes go.

I have made over a hundred Microwave recipes both sweet and savory but I have to say these new microwave snack recipes might be my new favorite. These microwave kale chips are made with just 3 ingredients, take 3 short minutes and are super healthy. What more could you ask for from a snack?

I like to add whatever seasoning I have around like chipotle powder, garlic powder or dry herbs! You must add these to your snack repertoire; they are a winner!

    I tried this and they are delicious but like others, my second batch turned into a mini fire. Would baking work?

    • Gemma Stafford on September 25, 2018 at 4:12 pm

      Yes Dee you totally can bake these. Maybe at 325oF just to make sure they don’t burn.

      Best,
      Gemma.

    These worked perfectly for me Gemma. I started with 2 minutes in the microwave as my kale was bought preshredded and smaller than you recommend then I continued for another minute. I’m going to use mine crumbled up as a condiment in or seasoning in quiche and savoury scones.

    • Gemma Stafford on August 26, 2018 at 4:56 am

      Hi Cathy,
      Good job! You understood the process and this is always a great help.
      Good idea too, scatter on a fresh salad too, a great additional flavor.
      thank you for this kind review and ideas,
      Gemma 🙂

    Can use paper towels instead of parchment paper for these recipies?

    • Gemma Stafford on August 6, 2018 at 3:56 am

      Ho Connie,
      Paper towels can catch fire in the microwave!
      Use an oiled plate if you do not have parchment, even the one in the microwave can be used for this recipe.
      I hope this is of help,
      Gemma 🙂

    i also had a wee fire in the microwave. I used same parchment for second batch. The first one was delicious. Won’t do that again

    • Gemma Stafford on May 26, 2018 at 3:43 am

      Ah! that is too bad. Not sure why there was a fire 🙁 I am sorry to hear this,
      Gemma 🙂

    These chips look amazing!! 🙂 is it possible to make spinach chips in the microwave??

    • Gemma Stafford on January 18, 2018 at 7:54 pm

      Hum, I think spinach might contain too much water to make chips in the microwave.

  6. Chelsea on January 6, 2018 at 4:40 am

    This is no doubt SUPER yummy and my whole family loved it the first time I made it! However, just a note of warning to all, the second time I tried making this my microwave caught fire inside. Do be careful!

    • Gemma Stafford on January 6, 2018 at 5:35 am

      WHAT? Oh! Yes, it is a not of caution, cooking needs to be monitored, always, and no matter what it is you are cooking, you need to be vigilant. I think it may have been the paper, was it a baking paper? Do follow steps carefully,
      Gemma 🙂

    HELP! I’ve made the Kale chips twice now. Once following your recipe and once using light soy sauce instead of sea salt. Both tasted lovely. But I gad to stop cooking both after 2minutes 20, in my 800watt microwave, as sone of the kale ignited!!! What am I doing wrong?!? The second time I cooked them in bursts of 30 seconds. The once that didn’t ignite, tasted delicious, and my husband loved them too!!!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 19, 2017 at 2:30 am

      Hi Cari.
      Different microwaves cook in different ways! You have found what works for you, that is what matters,
      Gemma 🙂

  8. Aya on July 6, 2017 at 3:38 pm
