Wonton Wonders

Traditionally wonton wrappers are reserved for stuffing full of pork or shrimp and deep fried.  Smart Sassy Sisters think there are even tastier, and healthier, ways to enjoy these simple wrappers.  The smaller wonton wrappers have less than 25 calories each, and the larger egg roll ones are under 100.  They have about 50 wrappers in each package and I usually find them in the refrigerated produce section, by the bagged lettuce or pre-chopped veggies. 


Chips-I love a crunch and this packs a punch.  If using the wonton wrappers cut diagonally into triangles and coat with olive oil spray. 

24 wonton wrappers, sliced in half diagonally to form triangles
Spray with Olive Oil mister, or drizzle olive oil or melted butter on the wrappers

Choice of toppings:
Parmesan or Romano cheese, grated
Cinnamon (or Cinnamon Sugar)
Smoked Paprika
Chilli Powder

I just open my spice cabinet and start mixing up options and see what I like. 

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Line baking sheet with parchment paper or nonstick foil. Lay wonton wrappers on baking sheet in one layer. Spray or brush olive oil or butter and top with seasonings of your choice.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the wontons have crisped and turned a lovely golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking sheet, then serve.

Crisps will keep for 3-4 days in an airtight container.


Banana, Chocolate, Almond Butter Wrap Up

This one works better with the larger egg roll wrappers.

 Lay the wrapper with the points up and cut a banana into piece as wide as the wrapper.

 Spread a little almond butter on the wrapper above the banana and put some dark chocolate chips below the banana.

Wrap up like an eggroll and bake at 400°F for about 10 minutes.  It will be all warm, gooey and caramelized.
