Roasted Broccoli Chips

It's a new year and I'm in the market for some new healthy snacks.  I absolutely LOVE Kale Chips and wanted to spice things up and find a different vegetable to enjoy as a salty and crunchy treat.  Broccoli is one of my favorite veggies and Trader Joe's is now selling Broccoli Chips.  After checking out the nutrition info on the Trader Joe's version, I wanted something baked/roasted and not fried.  This recipe produced some seriously delicious Broccoli Chips.  I hope you enjoy!

Roasted Broccoli Chips


  • 1 head of broccoli (washed and completely dry)
  • 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 450°
  2. Cut Broccoli into large florets
  3. Place broccoli in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil
  4. Add salt and pepper and toss to combine
  5. Transfer to a cookie sheet (broccoli should be in a single layer.  If you stack the broccoli it will not become crispy)
  6. Bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the broccoli is crunchy.  It is normal to slightly char the edges on some of the florets.
