Vegan Cheesy Kale Chips

Easy, Cheesy Vegan Kale Chips

Vegetables are an important part of your diet and should be consumed daily. However, the issue that I have with this is finding different ways to make the veggies so I don’t get bored with them. I also struggle with the fact that I have a picky three-year old but I want him to learn to eat even the healthiest of foods for you. I have never really been turned on to kale, however I was browsing through the Vegetarian Times magazine and found a recipe for vegan cheesy kale chips. I thought that this was a perfect “new” recipe to try and tweaked the recipe to make it my own!




1 tablespoon Kelapo coconut oil

1 12-oz bunch kale, stems removed and torn into large pieces

1/3 cup nutritional yeast


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl add kale pieces and coconut oil. Rub oil onto kale pieces until well coated.
  3. Add nutritional yeast and toss to coat.
  4. Divide kale between 2 baking sheets and bake for 5 minutes, or until leaves have shrunken.
  5. Flip kale leaves to the opposite side and bake for about 5 to 10 additional minutes.
  6. Sprinkle with sea salt if desired. Enjoy!

There is no doubt that this is a simple recipe great for a side dish or even a snack! If you are unsure of how the chips taste cheesy, it is because of the nutritional yeast, it somehow has the taste that you would find in a cheese. This is a great alternative to cheese if you are choosing  to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet. I also replaced the olive oil in the original recipe with coconut oil for a better alternative. Not only should olive oil not be heated but I feel that coconut oil brings out the flavoring of your food rather than making it taste like the oil that you are using! I personally feel that this is a great recipe to make for both kids and adults because everyone is bound to really enjoy them!
