Yup, it’s kale time in the garden which means I have a list of new kale recipes.  Earlier this week I gave you my kale sandwich recipe, but now it’s all about snacks.   At around 4PM every afternoon I snack.  I can’t help it! I’m a afternoon snacker while my husband is a late night snacker, but either way is ok because you won’t regret eating these homemade kale crackers.

Potato Chips Alternative

If you’re looking for a healthy alternative to potato chips then say hello to these kale crackers!  These are my go to for snacking on the couch at night, instead of filling up a big bowl of oily, salty potato chips!

The crackers are easy to make and I bet that you have all the ingredients already in your pantry.   It’s the perfect way to use a entire bunch of kale!   These crackers are perfect for snacking, serving as a appetizer (especially sprinkled with Parmesan or a thin slice of Sharp cheese), or alongside eggs at breakfast.

Healthy Kale Recipe

Here’s how to make these healthy, crunchy kale crackers!

Gather your bunch of kale.  A bunch of kale equals about 7-8 oz.    Make sure your kale is clean and dry.

Rip your kale off the stems and rip again into small pieces.

Add your kale to a food processor with a drizzle of olive oil (this helps the blades move).  Process.  Left Picture.
Then add the rest of your ingredients to the food processor and pulse until a sticky dough forms.  Right Picture.

How to Make Kale Crackers

Now comes the fun part – rolling it out!
Place parchment paper or silicone baking mat that’s been sprayed with non stick spray on cookie sheet.
Pour your kale mixture onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on top.  Picture 1 and 2.
Take another piece of parchment paper that’s been sprinkled with flour and put the parchment paper on top. Now with a rolling pin (the parchment paper is in between the kale and rolling pin), roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick. Picture 3 and 4. 
Remove the top layer of parchment paper once rolled out.  Picture 5.
With a knife gently cut lines (not cutting all the way through) horizontally and vertically, forming cracker shapes. This will help you break them into crackers easily once baked.  Picture 6.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the crackers turn a dark/brownish green.   Because you sprayed your parchment your crackers should not stick at all.Easy homemade kale crackers recipe made by combining kale and flour.   They are sprinkled with salt to make a healthy snack!  I love these as a healthy, low carb alternative to potato chips!

After letting them cool for a little bit, break them at your lines you cut in.

Calories 150 kcal

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch of kale approximately 8 oz
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove kale from stem and rip up into small pieces. Put kale into food processor and drizzle with a little bit of olive oil (helps the blades move). Process for about 15 seconds.
  3. Add flour, flax seeds, salt, sugar, egg and water to food processor. Process for 15 seconds, or until all the ingredients combine into a dough ball.
  4. Place parchment paper or silicone baking mat that's been sprayed with non stick spray on cookie sheet.
  5. Pour your kale mixture onto the parchment paper. Sprinkle a little bit of flour on top.
  6. Take another piece of parchment paper that's been sprinkled with flour and put the parchment paper on top. Now with a rolling pin (the parchment paper is in between the kale and rolling pin), roll it out to about 1/4 inch thick.
  7. Remove the top layer of parchment paper once rolled out.
  8. With a knife gently cut lines (not cutting all the way through) horizontally and vertically, forming cracker shapes. This will help you break them into crackers easily once baked.
  9. Sprinkle salt on top of the dough.
  10. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Depending on how thin or thick your dough is, watch so they don't burn. You want the color to start to turn a dark/brownish green. I will check the crackers at 15 minutes and every 5 minutes after that.
  11. Once out of the oven, let cool for 15 minutes.
  12. Using your knife lines, break them into crackers. Eat and enjoy!
