They're so good! I like them with paprika, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. You can do just about any dry powder seasoning. I tried store bought ones- they had nutritional yeast which was an unfamiliar flavor for me (supposed to be cheesy/nutty in flavor and it was) for a nacho cheese flavor. I still prefer my homemade ones! You can also dehydrate them if you don't want to bake them. :)

I will try these. They sound great with your favorite spices.

They are great. Do NOT try to add balsamic vinegar to them before baking. They turn out mushy. I think you need to stick to spices and a bit of oil.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I really like to add chili powder to mine some times. They are a great snack. I love chips and this gives me that crunch I need to fill that craving.

Thanks for the suggestions. A crunchy snack would be good. I already do air popped popcorn misted with EVOO and lightly sprinkled with sea salt. That salt thing. Sigh...... But I do love garlic so may well give that a try after next grocery visit......

Try onion powder, garlic powder, do you like spice or heat, add red pepper, experiment with it. Just use a little kale at a time.

I keep reading about kale chips here on SP. I think they sound good actually. I have hesitated to make them though because I am such a salt junkie that I am almost afraid to add anything to my diet that will temp me to add even more salt. And I can't imagine the chips without salt. Sigh......

Anyone have any good experiences with seasonings other than salt on the kale chips?

I've always wondered what Kale Chips tasted like. They are a pretty expensive item in the store so I had never bought them. I did buy a big bag of Kale though recently so I made my own. They were really good. I pulled the stems off, sprinkled with olive oil, onion and garlic powder, a bit of salt and baked them. They turned out crunchy and tastey.
