  • 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


  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!
