Baked Spinach Chips is a healthy snack made with fresh spinach! This baked recipe is so easy to make! It’s a healthy alternative to potato chips!
You are probably familiar with kale chips but are you friends with spinach chips? If not, I hope this post will change that. With an 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.
Healthy Alternative to Potato Chips
Now take the spinach leaves off the stem.
Now get your spices. Keep in mind if you are doing multiple batches of these chips due to cookie sheet size (I did 4 cookie sheets full) to evenly distribute the seasoning.
Sprinkle on top.. and into the oven it goes..
And out of the oven it comes. Beautiful!
The smell of these chips are amazing! You’re going to want to snack on these spinach chips right away!

Baked Spinach ChipsPrint
- 1/2 pound Spinach leaves about 5 cups
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon paprika
- 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line your cookie sheets with parchment paper.
- Place your spinach leaves in a bowl, add oil and massage so all leaves are coated.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes. Watch them carefully as they will burn quickly. If you are using larger spinach leaves it might need more time. Baby spinach will need less time. Remove from the oven when they are crispy.
- Let spinach chips cool down and then enjoy!
