It is the middle of the day and you really just need a snack. You want something salty, you want something tasty and you want something that is easy to grab and eat. Chips would be perfect! However, you just started a low carb diet- can you even have chips? Aren’t most chips loaded with carbs? The answer is yes you can have chips but yes, most chips are full of carbs! Sooooo what exactly does this mean?
You can definitely have chips while on a low carb diet but you may need to change your idea of chips around a little bit. Traditional potato or corn chips just won’t do on a low carb diet as both of those options are full of carbs. Many other typical types of chips are also going to be off the list. Grab the first bag of chips that you see and check the label- carbs, carbs, carbs! So when we said you could still have chips, were we implying that you cheat on your diet? Absolutely not! You just need new chips! You need better chips. You need to read this blog to see all the ways you can make and eat chips. And, to answer your question up front, yes- all of these taste good, are low carb and will satisfy any craving you have for a salty, crunchy snack.
When starting a low carbohydrate diet, one of the hardest things to give up is those everyday things that you eat without even thinking about it. Of course at meal time you are going to be focused on your dietary goals. You probably plan your meals way in advance to make sure that you are eating right. You put effort into those “real meals”. But then around the middle of the day, you probably mindlessly reach for a bag of chips. You may even eat a few before you realize what you are doing- drop the chips! They are likely not in your diet! Potato and corn chips and almost all processed chips are loaded with carbs which just won’t do. You probably hadn’t even thought of this when you began on your diet (some may have reconsidered the whole no carb thing!) but, now that you are aware, you need to alter the way you snack. This can be a tricky habit to break or change, even harder that transforming your main meals. Changing how you snack is difficult as it is such a habit, a standard thing that you just do everyday. There is so little thought involved when you grab a bag of chips that it is going to take a whole lot of thought to stop eating those prepackaged bags of carbs.
So why do people love chips so much in the first place. What makes them so hard to stop eating and revert to a new way of snacking? Well, for one thing, the salt! Salt is a super common craving that many people have and there is no way to satisfy this other than to just eat salt. While this is completely okay to do on a low carb diet, salt is applied to a lot of high carb foods. That bag of chips is just one of them! Yes, salt pairs well with carbs but guess what- it pairs well with things that are no carbs too. So, if saltiness is what you crave for your middle of the day snack, the chips on this recipe will solve that need!
In addition to the saltiness that you need in a chip, the crunchiness is something else that is a chip requirement. Don’t you just love that satisfying snap of a chip breaking in your mouth? Isn’t that crunch one of the things you really want? The salty, crispy crunchiness of those packaged, standard chips is what makes them an ideal snack.
If you are in the crunch category of people who need chips, then these recipes also can provide that for you. Many of the low carb chips listed here slow baked in the oven or even dehydrated to really make the food crunchy. So, as you can tell, crunch won’t be a problem when you give up regular old chips. In fact, a lot of these recipes may be even crunchier that a potato chip…
So we’ve covered the crunch and the need for salt but what else do you look for in a chip? Why, convenience of course! Chips are so simple, so easy to just grab and go. They travel well, pair with almost any kind of food (a side of chips goes great with everything from a burger to a steak!) and, many times, they are already packed in nice travel sized bags. No need to carry the family sized bag around here (of course it is economical to buy a larger bag of chips and separate it into individual plastic bags)! When you are thinking of having a snack, you want something that is easy to pick up and snack on when you are in a hurry or when you just want to eat something quickly. That is where the small bag of chips steps in.
Chips are an ideal convenience snack and that is why so many of us eat them. You can toss them in your lunchbox for work, give them to your kids for school, grab a bag to eat on the couch while you watch your favorite show or hold a bag of chips as you walk around your home. Chips are almost too easy! How will you ever be able to stick to the low carb chips when regular old carb loaded chips are so easy to eat and transport?!
One fantastic idea to make homemade, low carb chips more likely to be something you eat is to make large batches of the recipe. Once cooked, separate the homemade chips into small ziploc bags and, look at that! You just made your own easy to grab, individually sized, perfect snack of chips (except yours are a million times better than the store bought ones!). Just makes sure to store the chips in airtight containers (bags, tupperware, whatever!) so they don’t lose their crisp. If they chips do get a little soggy, a quick trip back into the oven wil crisp them right up (this should work for pretty much all of these recipes too!). Batch cooking is certainly the way to go, especially after you have found a recipe (or many recipes) that you love. Toss a bag in your kids lunchbox, grab one for your trip to work or just open one at home when you sit down to watch a movie- chip prep is so useful!
Now that you have the convenience factor of snacking on chips covered, almost all the bases are covered for what you want in a chip, right? We have recipes that will satisfy your need for salt, recipes that are extra crispy, crunchy, and recipes that can be made into convenient, to-go sized portions. So what is missing? What else could you possibly need in a chip? There is one biggie that we are still missing… taste of course!
You clearly want that salty taste when you are reaching for a bag of chips but you also most likely want something more. You want a good taste and you want a nice strong taste that isn’t boring or tastes like cardboard (sorry rice cakes, you basically taste like crunchy paper…). In fact, many chip companies base their business around diverse flavors. You have probably gone to the grocery store and been inundated with flavor choices. Everything from sour cream and onion to barbecue to cheddar jalapeno, there is practically every flavor chip imaginable.
However, as you know, all of those flavors are artificial. They are simply a mix of spices and laboratory made flavors that are passed onto some carb laden chip. Do they taste good? Sure. Are they good for you? Probably not. When we are already revamping the way you think of chips, you should also re consider how you think of chip flavors.
Many of the recipes here utilize spices and herb blend to make the chips delicious. A lot of these recipes just focus on the natural flavor of the food that you are creating the chip from. For example, spinach chips will taste like yummy spinach! Pepperoni chips are going to have that great pepperoni taste without you having to add anything. Enjoying these natural flavors is not only going to be great as you are eating but they are also healthier that whatever type of powdered mystery mix is being sprinkled on the chips at a factory.
So once you have a perfectly flavored chip, you may already be thinking of how you can pair that chip with something else. While chips are a great snack on their own, sometimes you just need a little bit more. A little extra flavor and a little extra bulk to your snack. Luckily, many of these chips are the perfect vessels for your favorite sides.
Chips in general are the perfect food for serving with tasty dips and spreads. How else are you going to eat that tasty hummus or that creamy spinach dip. You need a chip of course! Grabbing a bowl of hummus or whipping up a delicious dip is just another way to really take your snack time up a notch. You already have these fifty amazing chip recipes and you will likely find just as many low carb dip options as well. When you start to mix and match chips and dips, the possibilities are endless. You will never have a boring snack time again!
As you can see (and probably already knew), chips are an all around great snack! However, even just one serving of regular old potato chips contains several grams of carbohydrates, way more than you need or want. On top of that, we all know that it is so hard to eat just one tiny serving of chips so many people end up eating all of their carbs for the day in one quick snack. You know that you have been there- mindlessly eating chip after chip until the whole bag is gone. Not okay! By now you probably know what the best thing to do is…can you guess?
The easy answer- make chips yourself that you can eat on your new, awesome, low carb diet! There are so many recipes that do not involve corn, potatoes or anything that can be high in carbs. You are actually going to be so surprised at what ingredients you can use to make the base of the chips (tomatoes?!? Cheese?!? Beets?!? All make great chips!) All of these chip recipes are just made with pure goodness like veggies or almond flour, for example. Also, many are made using meats which will up your protein intake for the day while tasting so salty good (isn’t that what you want in a chip!) By using all ingredients that are good for you and taste good, these chips are simply amazing- not many bags of chips in the store can claim that!
Another thing to note about store bought chips is that isn’t not just the tricky carbs you will be avoiding but also a lot of the fat. Most store-bought chips also tend to contain way too much grease and salt in addition to all those carbs. While you may not be following a low fat or low sodium diet, isn’t it always a good idea to pick the very best, healthiest options you can? Why even bother with those store bought chips? You are probably getting convinced now even more that you need to be making your own! Homemade chips are a far better alternative as you can easily control the amount of salt and oil you use. Most of these recipes use a minimal amount anyway so you won’t even have to worry when you start cooking. Recipes that think for you and cater to your health needs are simply the best!
If you are desperately looking for a low carb substitute for this favorite snack, then you have definitely come to the right place. Take a look at these tasty recipes and you are sure to find something that you love that can easily replace those store bought, carb laden chips you use to crave. From chips made with veggies to chips that are made with just one ingredient (that’s right! Check out the recipe for cheese crisps to see how to make chips from just cheese!), there is something for everyone no matter what your preferences or cooking levels.
All of these recipes are carb-free or low-carb, making them the ideal treat for people on a low-carb diet. This also means that you don’t have to question each recipe or wonder if it is okay to eat while on your diet- they all are! In fact, they go above and beyond being just low carb and are lower in fats and salts too- doesn’t get any better than this! However, if you didn’t know they were low carb before taking that first bite, you never would have guessed- they all just taste so good! Now comes your real problem- which recipe to choose first…
50 Ways to Enjoy Chips on a Low Carb Diet
1. Radish Chips
Most root vegetables are high in carbs, but radishes are an exception which means they make a great low carb choice for chips! Though they are typically eaten raw in salads, the sweet, peppery flavor of radish actually works very well as a chip. The firm texture of fresh radishes also makes sure that the radish chips are crisp and crunchy instead of being soggy. This recipe bakes the chips in an oven instead of deep frying them, so they are low in both calories and carbs.
2. Cheesy Nacho Spinach Chips
This is one of the most flavorful low-carb vegetable chips recipes that exists and the tasty, Tex-Mex flavors make these cheesy nacho chips just as satisfying as a handful of Doritos (if not more so). The nutritional yeast used in the recipe gives them a yummy, cheesy flavor, but the chips are still completely vegan and dairy free- its like magic! Though any type of spinach can be used for the recipe, using pre-washed baby spinach makes it a fast, easy process. Since just one serving of spinach gives you over 50 percent of your necessary vitamin A for the day, this snack is a particularly healthy way to eat no carb chips.

Make a big batch at once as dehydrating can take some time and you’ll want to have these chips on hand!
8. Baked Butternut Squash Chips
Butternut squash is a fall staple but these low-carb squash chips can be enjoyed year round. If you have a mandoline slicer, it will be even easier to create these chips by sliding the narrow necks of butternut squash across the slicer.

The parmesan provides a nutty taste that perfectly complements the natural sweetness of butternut squash.
9. Baked Zucchini Chips
This is a very simple low-carb chips recipe that can easily be adapted to fit any tastes.

If you are making them for a large group, you may need to double the recipe! Get creative with your spices and find your favorite blend!
10. Parsnip Chips

11. Baked Asparagus Fries
Though these are technically fries instead of chips, they are still an absolutely amazing low carb snack.

This also gives them more of a classic “fry” texture which you may be craving on your low carb diet. The fries are a great snack when eaten alone, but they can also be paired with any of the recipes for sun dried tomato dip, roasted garlic dip, and blue cheese dip that are included with the basic low-carb chips recipe.

13. Tortilla Chips With Hummus
The secret to making this recipe low in carbohydrates is to find low carb tortillas. Whether you make them yourself or buy them in stores, low carb tortillas are a must!.

Salty and a little sweet, these chips are perfect for whatever you are craving.
17. Gouda Cheese Crisps With Carrots

The carrots are a great source of vitamin A, and the parsnips have high levels of Potassium and vitamin C. To get them crispy on all sides, stir the sliced vegetables a few times as they cook. They are especially tasty when served with some sour cream and freshly chopped parsley. Sweet and savory and just a little salty makes these an ideal snack.
45. Kale Chips
Kale chips have become so popular that pre-prepared versions are available in many stores. However, these chips are so easy to make and taste so good when fresh that it is fun and simple to make them at home. Kale is known for being nutritious, so it is no surprise that just one cup of Kale has 130 percent of the daily recommended amount of vitamin C. The vinegar in this recipe helps to keep the leaves from being tough, and it gives the chips a tangy flavor that is reminiscent of salt and vinegar potato chips. Who knew these would be so easy to make at home!
46. Snap Pea Chips
Since they grow so fast, many gardeners end up with an excess amount of sugar snap peas, and this recipe is an ideal way to use them up by turning them into no carb chips.

The nutritional yeast and spices used in this recipe add a cheesy flavor while still being vegan, gluten-free, and carb-free. What more could you ask for?!
47. Almond Butter Cabbage Chips
The combination of almond butter and cabbage might seem bizarre, but the two ingredients pair together surprisingly well.

These low-carb chips are a great way to enjoy a snack packed with protein and fiber and are a creative and interesting flavor combo.

49. Carrot Chips
Carrots are always a great addition to any meal, since they contain so much vitamin C, vitamin A, and fiber. Most low carb recipes that include carrots use them in crisps or fries, but they actually make fantastic chips when sliced into rounds. Try to find particularly large carrots so that your chips are a substantial size. To get them perfectly crispy, line your baking tray with parchment paper before putting the chips onto the tray. Simple, straighforward and tasty- just what you want in a chip!
50. Paleo Dipping Chips
While there are plenty of great recipes for paleo friendly dips, it is harder to find low-carb chips recipes that work well as a dipping chip. This recipe is specifically created to be firm enough to scoop up thick dips without snapping in half, and the flavor is mild enough to work with a variety of different dips. Almond flour makes a protein-rich base for this chip, and then it is seasoned with just a hint of cumin, chili powder, and lime juice. Sweet and salty, these chips are definitely addicting.
