Ingredients for the healthy Spinach wraps
This recipe contains only five easy to find ingredients. They are affordable and high in nutrients.
- Rolled Oats – a very nutrient dense whole grain. Complex carbohydrates will keep you full for longer and nourish your body with a variety of nutrients. They are high in fiber, protein, antioxidants, and vitamins. Oats is naturally gluten free but I recommend checking for a gluten free label on the package. Sometimes the is processed in a facility that also process wheat or other grains. I use this brand of oats.
- Eggs – they are high in protein and contain almost every nutrient you can think of.
- Milk – for this recipe I used plant based milk but you can replace it with any milk you like. Milk is a good source of calcium and vitamin D.
- Spinach – a mighty leafy vegetable because it offers many benefits for the health. Spinach contains many antioxidants, vitamins and fiber.
- Salt – I add some salt to this recipe because there wraps need flavor. You can also add other seasoning if you prefer.
- Powerful blender -you can also use a smoothie maker or a food processor.
- 10 – inch nonstick pan – it is essential that the pan has a nonstick coating to prevent the wraps from sticking.
- Heat resistant spatula -or other utensil that can help you flip the wraps.

Helpful tips about cooking the healthy spinach wraps
One of the most important things when you make wraps is cooking them right. Start by preheating the pan to medium-low temperature. Do not add the batter if your pan is still cold.
You need only a small amount of butter or oil to grease the pan. I use few drops of fat and then I spread them with a paper towel on the surface of the pan. Immediately after that pour about a half a ladle of batter in the pan. Then tilt the pan until the batter covers the whole cooking surface.
If you add to much batter in the pan, your wraps will become too thick. If the batter is too little you may have holes in your wraps. if that happens add some more batter and fill in the holes before you flip the crepe.
To flip the spinach wrap, carefully slide your spatula around the edges. Then gently move the spatula underneath the middle of the wrap.
If it is not coming off easily then it is not ready! The spinach wraps usually start browning around the edges when they are ready to flip.
If the wrap is falling apart when you are trying to flip it then it is not cooked yet. Cook for a bit longer and try again.
