Do these homemade kale chips need to be refrigerated?

I have some kale chips in the oven now (just torn-up kale tossed with olive oil and sprinkled with some sea salt and a little garlic powder). The last time I made these, there weren't any leftovers. This time, there will be. I'm not putting them in a dehydrator or anything, and I'm concerned that any moisture left after baking (about 20 min) would cause spoilage. I'm not too keen on refrigerating, though, because it would ruin the texture. Would these be safe to keep in a container in the pantry? I'm thinking yes, but I wanted to ask just in case anyone knows better. I anticipate using them up within the next couple of days.
