If you’ve hung around this blog long enough, you know that I’m a huge fan of keto green smoothies to help boost vegetable intake on keto. Blended greens are so much easier to prepare and eat than a big salad!
But, sometimes you’re just not in the mood for a sweet smoothie. You might be craving something a little salty or a little cheesy… so how about making some “chips” out of spinach? I know it might sound a little weird, but I highly recommend that you give this recipe a try! The result is a very light, airy “chip” that’s fun to eat and makes consuming spinach super easy.
If you enjoy spinach, which many people do, try this stuffed-spinach keto pork chops recipe!
Also, if you’ve made kale chips before, spinach chips are lower in carbs and a little less “green” tasting. Give this vegetable chip variety a try!

How to Make Easy Roasted Spinach Chips
This is just a quick overview of how to make roasted spinach chips. For the recipe in detail, scroll to the recipe card at the end of the post.
Salt your spinach. TIP: Use large (mature), whole spinach leaves for this recipe, NOT baby spinach. I used the Fresh Express brand.
Add cheese. TIP: I used hand-grated parmesan cheese in the photos, but you can also use a storebought grated parmesan from a brand like Kraft or shredded parmesan cheese.
Bake your spinach. TIP: Before removing the baked Spinach Chips from the oven, let them cool first.
Serve and enjoy. These go quickly, so be prepared to make another batch! 🙂
Can I Use Baby Spinach in this Recipe?
No. Baby spinach will be too fragile. Use mature spinach instead.
Can I Make Different Flavors of Crispy Spinach Chips?
Of course! Feel free to experiment with the toppings. You can do things like:
- Omit the cheese altogether, or try a different flavor
- Try various seasonings like garlic salt, Italian seasoning, chili powder, etc.
My Chips Burned! Why?!
Because ovens vary, you need to keep a close eye on your Spinach Chips. In the recipe, I state that you should cook them for “8-11 minutes, or until the leaves begin to shrink and turn brown.” I recommend peeking at them at 7 minutes, then every minute after that.
Can I Eat Spinach on the Keto Diet?
Yes, spinach is a vegetable with a low carb count per cup and it is acceptable to eat on the keto diet.
Is Spinach Low Carb?
Yes, one cup of raw spinach has roughly 1 net carb total. Spinach and other leafy greens are easy to incorporate into a keto diet and contain a solid amount of fiber.
Spinach is an excellent source of fiber on the keto diet. Finding good keto fiber options is essential to succeeding on the keto diet.
