Italian Herb Baked Spinach Chips

Buh-Bye kale chips, HELLOOOOOO spinach chips!!! These italian herb baked spinach chips are my new favorite healthy snack. I like them much better than any kale chip I’ve ever tasted, even the baked salt n vinegar kale chips I posted on this blog. Baked spinach chips just have more…oompf to them or something. Or maybe it’s just that I prefer spinach over kale in any form.

Start with fresh, pretty spinach leaves!

I won’t even talk about how I went through this whole bag of spinach in a day. Oh trust me, once you make these you’ll see just how easy that is to do. I’ve been craving salty, crunchy things lately and while I really want to snack on a bag of Lays, these baked spinach chips have been my saving grace.

I like to really season these bad boys up!

They bake up so crisp and delicate and packs an amazing Italian flavor thanks to McCormicks Italian Herb Seasoning grinder. That stuff is delicious!! If you don’t have a bottle go run to Target or Walmart or where ever  they sell McCormick seasoning in your area and  get one today! I’ve been putting it on EVERYTHING and it’s UH-MAYZ on roasted chicken legs! Never thought I’d be so in love with a store-brought seasoning before.  It’s awesome and the ONLY way I’ll eat spinach chips…for now.

This is the seasoning I’m talking about! So Good!

I’m pretty sure other seasonings would taste fab on these things but I’ve been to into my salt and Italian herb to venture out, so let me know if you’ve tried other flavors that were a hit.

Fresh, Italian Herb Seasoned Spinach ready for the oven!

You want to make sure you eat these fresh out of the oven because I hear baked spinach chips only stay crisp for a few hours.This may or may not be true being that they’ve never lasted that long for me to find out.

Total time
Recipe type: snack
Serves: 1
  • 2 cups fresh spinach (choose the big, healthy-looking leaves)
  • few drop of extra virgin olive oil
  • McCormicks Italian Blend Seasoning
  • Salt
  1. Preheat oven to 325
  2. Place spinach in a large bowl.
  3. Add a few drops of olive oil and mix with your hands until each leaf is lightly coated in oil. Be careful not to use too much oil or the spinach will not crisp up in the oven.
  4. Sprinkle the spinach with Italian herb seasoning and salt.
  5. Taste one of the leaves to make sure you are using enough seasoning. (you won't need a lot of seasoning)
  6. Arrange the spinach in a single layer (don't let them overlap) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly oil nonstick foil.
  7. Bake for 8 minutes. Watch them carefully after the 8 minute mark if they are not done.
  8. Let sit on the baking sheet for about 2-3 minutes.
  9. Remove from baking sheet and enjoy!
~TIPS~ Be SUPER careful not to use too much olive oil. Only a few drops. Spinach will shrink A LOT in the oven so don't be alarmed.

    I was leery about making these because if anyone can make a disaster out of a simple recipe, it is me. These turned out AMAZING! So brittle and delicate, and crunchy too, which is good because the normal consistency of spinach is not enjoyable to me. I added some garlic and parmesan cheese as well. Very flavorful!

    Delicious and easier than kale chips! Although I think for more than one person you will need the family / bulk size container of baby spinach leaves! For me, this served one person- moi!

    YES Monique YES!!
    This is my first time cooking spinach and this recipe turned out great. I can’t wait to go buy some more spinach and sauté it. Using the same seasonings.
    Thanks and let me find out I’m learning how to cook

    I made these for the first time the other night… Our daughter loved them :D.. I did not have any tin foil or parchment paper on hand so I tried making them using my silicone baking mats (aka Silpats) and the baked spinach chips just lifted right off, no spatula needed :).. They were also still crispy the following day when we finished the left overs :)

    These were so good, better than kale. I used Blood Orange EEVO and Mrs. Dash seasoning. Could not stop eating these!

    Do you think an oil pump sprayer would work better?? I am so excited to try these for my trip I have coming up in a couple of days.

    I’m in love with kale chips but ran out of kale…. Luckily I had some baby spinach lying around! I made two batches of these… One with Italian seasoning and salt as directed and a second with ‘Cavender’s all purpose Greek Seasoning.’ Man! They were SUPERB! I put this stuff on everything and it made the spinach taste so much better! You should give it a shot! Thanks for the recipe!! Yummmmmm!

    I tried to make these and they were so thin I could barely get them off the foil. I tried with various sized leaves too. What few i was able to get off the foil were delicious though! Any ideas?

    I just tried these, because I love spinach and healthy food. Though, I understood the recipe wrong, I thought the temperature was written in degrees celcius.
    So, 300+ °C made them…hmm, slightly more crispy than expected. Gonna try tomorrow using the right temperature….

    I just made this and it was a yummy snack. I cooked them at 180, seasoned with a mixed spice, salt and pepper and ate them before they were cold. So good.
