Jump to Recipe

These cheesy air fried kale chips are so quick and easy. We used our oven that has an air fryer setting, but you can of course use whichever air fryer you have. And if you don’t have an air fryer, you can also bake these at a higher temperature! These chips only require a few ingredients, plus they are quick and healthy. Nutritional yeast is a star ingredient in this recipe, creating the cheesy taste without any dairy! We don’t usually purchase or consume a lot of kale in our diet, however it’s something we’ve been incorporating lately It’s something we were unsure about whether we like it or not, but our love for it is growing! These kale chips will definitely be a go to snack for us that we make all the time.
