How to Make Awesome Yummy Delicious Low Carb Chips

Updated on March 19, 2012

yummy low carb snacks

Living a low carb diet can be difficult, especially since certain satisfying good groups have to be drastically reduced. If you love your low carb lifestyle but you miss eating foods like crunchy potato chips. There could be a tasty solution for you, there are low carb potato chips available on the market however, they may not always be to your liking. Not to worry, you can make your own at home, with one simple ingredient. Cheese.

Here is what you need:

Block of hard cheese like cheddar or parmesean cheesee

Sharp knife

Chopping board

Parchment paper or non stick baking try

Baking tray


Pallet Knife

Paper towels

Serving tray


Take your block of cheese and cut it into slices, about half an inch thick. Once you have cut them into slices, cut them into smaller squares, about the size of a dime piece.

Preheat your oven to it's highest setting.

Place your cut pieces of cheese on a non-stick baking tray with or without parchment paper. Parchement paper makes it easier for you to remove them. However, I have found they work just as well with a non stick backing tray or cake tin.

Place your cheese in the oven on the middle shelf.

Leave it in there for about seven minutes, they should start to bubble and melt. Once the cheese looks a little bit brown on the edges, flip them over with a pallet knife.

Leave them in there for about three to four minutes. They should be golden brown and crunchy.

Remove them from the oven and leave them to cool on a serving tray. Remove the excess oil with a paper towel.

Once they are cool, eat and enjoy, if you want to flavour them you can sprinkle black pepper, chilli powder or anything you fancy on them. Bare in mind that cheddar cheese can be quite salty so they work well without anything at all.

      I used to eat these when I was on the low carb diet. Now I am eating mainly raw I dont really eat them. However, they are nice for a treat.

      This recipe looks easy and yummy. Alas, I am giving up all dairy (cheese really is all I ate) and going to a mostly raw diet. But sometimes we just need a little something special. I shall keep this in mind for that time. Sshhh

      trust me I know how hard it is! I found these and I have been using them with guacamole dip, hummus and various other dips. You can also make taco shells out of them an stuff them with chicken, fish, beef, salad or whatever. I also use them to make little crispy croutons in salads!
