Microwave Kale Chips?? seriously? they are AMAZING! and just take 3 minutes.

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?

This popular snack is high in fiber with no fat making it the perfect thing to eat if you’re trying to keep your snacks clean. I see these in all kinds of grocery stores but I so much prefer to make my own. These Microwave Kale Chips are a great way to use leftover kale and my favorite part is that this recipe allows for so much room to experiment. 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!

Wow. This is a must. So tasty and super healthy. Cant wait to try them out on the kids. As for fires, we had no issues. X

Made these several times and no fires just delicious chips ( maybe different microwave ovens are more powerful then others).

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

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.

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!

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!!!
