You are probably familiar with kale chips but are you friends with spinach chips?  If not, I hope this post will change that.  With a overabundance (understatement) of fresh spinach I was trying to come up with unique ways on how to use these beautiful leaves.  Then I thought… kale is kinda like spinach in texture.. I wonder if I can make spinach chips?

Healthy Spinach Chips

Let me tell you, you can!  And honestly, I think these are better than kale chips.  The chips just melt in your mouth.  I am totally guilty of just wanting to eat a few, then I come back and get a entire bowl’s worth.  But it’s spinach so it’s a guilt free snack!  I love guilt free snacking, don’t you?

The seasoning I’m giving in this recipe is my favorite way to have them as it adds a touch of spice – a little cumin, paprika, cayenne and sea salt.  Yum!   You can then eat them as is, or add a little bit of fresh salsa on top.  This just brings it past the amazing mark, I love it.

Course Snack

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350.
  2. Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. Place your spinach leaves in a bowl, add oil and massage so all leaves are coated.
  4. Lay the spinach leaves out on the parchment paper so they aren't touching each other. Depending on the size of your cookie sheets, you might have to do a few batches.
  5. Add cumin, paprika, pepper and salt to a small bowl and stir to combine.   Sprinkle your seasoning on top of all of the spinach leaves.

  6. Bake for 8-16 minutes. Watch them carefully as they will burn. Remove from oven when they are crispy. The bigger the leaves, the more time they will take.
  7. Let spinach chips cool down and then enjoy!
