Vegan Cheese & Onion Kale Chips

I’ve always wondered how people can sarcastically use kale as that ‘healthy thing everyone should eat, but nobody likes’ – cause I genuinely love this green goodness food! Whether it’s a kale caesar salad or kale chips, I’m definitely obsessed and these vegan cheese and onion kale chips are one of my favourite ways to enjoy kale.

These vegan cheese & onion kale chips are seriously easy to make – so there’s no excuses! No fancy equipment needed and you can easily get all the ingredients from a well-stocked supermarket (or order them online!). Personally I use my Ninja Grill to make these kale chips as it has a dehydrator function and keeps my oven free for other types of cooking at the same time. There’s definitely no need for a dehydrator though, if you want to enjoy these kale chips.

How to oven bake these vegan cheese & onion kale chips

Before I used a dehydrator, I often used my oven to make kale chips and it worked just as well!

Here’s how you can make these in your oven:

  1. Keep the oven at a low heat, I usually use 70-80C. It doesn’t make then raw chips (below 42C), but it speeds up the cooking process as I don’t like to wait 4 hours for my kale chips 😉
  2. Make sure the kale chips are placed on a greased baking tray in a single layer.
  3. During the cooking process, keep the oven door open for a few centimetres. Best stick a wooden spoon into the door to keep it slightly open. This will ensure that the moisture from the kale can evaporate and the kale chips will become nice and crunchy.
  4. Keep a close eye on the kale chips as they can very easily burn and ensure to flip them regularly during the baking process.

These delicious vegan kale crisps are my absolute go-to when it comes to healthy, vegan snacks! So easy to prepare and all you need is an oven!




  1. Preheat your oven to 80C.
  2. Wash and de-stem your fresh kale, then rip it into bite size chunks with your hands and place it into a large bowl.
  3. Drizzle 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil onto the kale, followed by the nutritional yeast flakes, onion powder and a sprinkle of salt.
  4. Mix using a large spoon or your hands to ensure the kale is evenly coated.
  5. Place the kale on a lined baking tray in a single layer and place it in the oven for about 15-20 minutes to begin with. Leave the oven door slightly open – best use a wooden spoon to keep the door a few centimetres open. Check back regularly to ensure it evenly crisps up and does not burn (this will happen quicker than you think!). After 15-20 minutes turn the kale chips, so they can evenly crisp up.
  6. Enjoy right away or keep in an airtight container to keep them crunchy!
