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.

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!

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.

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 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.
