Carrot Chips Recipe

Satisfy Salty Chip Cravings For Just 79 Calories!

If you find yourself constantly craving chips, then you're going to be all over this snack recipe. Made with carrots and baked instead of fried, these crunchy gems are a much healthier alternative to traditional potato chips.

Aside from a healthy dose of vitamins A and C and fiber, carrots contain antioxidants that may help reduce the risk of cancer and also improve your immune system. Plus, their natural sweetness combined with a sprinkle of salt offers an oh-so-satisfying salty-sweet flavor you won't be able to resist. The entire batch contains just 79 calories and offers 4.1 grams of filling fiber — potato chips have 160 calories and only one gram of fiber.

These chips are only seasoned with sea salt, but feel free to get creative and add cinnamon for a sweeter flavor or black pepper, cumin, or cayenne for a little kick.

Carrot Chips Recipe

Ingredients

  1. 2 large carrots (or 3 medium)
  2. 1/2 teaspoon olive oil (or melted coconut oil)
  3. 1/8 teaspoon sea salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Wash and peel the carrots. Using a mandoline slicer or a knife, tilt the carrot, and thinly slice diagonally to make oval-shaped pieces — if they're too thick, they'll be soft instead of crunchy.
  3. Place the carrot slices in a bowl, and toss with olive oil and salt.
  4. Lay the carrots in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the carrots are dry and crisp. Watch them carefully toward the end, as they can burn quickly.
