Healthy Snack Ranch Kale Chips Made in the Air Fryer

Healthy Recipes - This healthy Ranch Air Fryer Kale Chips is cook up crispy and perfect in the air fryer in under 10 minutes, including the time needed to make delicious from-scratch ranch seasoning.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups loosely packed kale stemmed
  • 2 teaspoons Vegan Ranch Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  1. Toss the oil, kale pieces, Ranch Seasoning, and nutritional yeast together in a medium-sized bowl, then dump the coated kale into the basket of your air fryer.
  2. Cook on 370 for 4-5 minutes (do not preheat), shaking after 2 minutes.
  3. Eat immediately.

Note: This recipe says to stem your kale, and that is not something you can skip. You can save the stems, and toss them into soups or stews, but don’t leave them on the leaves when you’re prepping your kale for this recipe. The woody kale stems take a LOT longer to fry than the leaves, so if you don’t stem, you’ll end up with chewy stems in the middles of your crispy kale chips. Or, if you cook longer so the stems get crispy, you’ll end up with burnt leaves. Don’t do it. I ruined a good batch of kale chips this way. Lesson learned!
