Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up and green and gold rule the retail aisles – so it’s time to geared up for your green party! Holiday themed party treats are often sugary and fattening. Now that swim suit preparation season is in full swing, it is important to be celebratory and a little healthy at the same time. Chips are a staple of most parties. They’re also greasy, salty, and go straight to the thighs. Instead of the ordinary party fare, make simple St. Patrick’s Snacks that are healthy and delicious and not so fatty. These are great for dips like hummus or salsa and they’re green for St. Patrick’s Day so they look great on the party table.
You’ll need spinach wraps, olive oil, garlic pepper, and salt. Also you’ll need a shamrock shaped cookie cutter.
Cut shamrock shapes from the spinach wrap.
Arrange the cut shapes onto a baking sheet. I cover it first with parchment paper for easier cleanup. Brush or drizzle olive oil onto each chip. Sprinkle with salt and garlic pepper. Bake in a preheated oven (350) for 5 to 7 minutes. If you want extra crispy chips, you may want to bake a few minutes more. Check them as you go.
Your final product will look like this.
These chips are a good without breaking the diet. Try them with different flavors of hummus or dips. Happy Saint Patrick’s Day!
