One of our favorite go-to, quick to whip up keto snacks are these Parmesan Crisps! We like to have a container filled with them in our fridge in case we are feeling snacky, but don't want the guilt. At only 1.5 net carbs for four crisps you really can't beat that. Personally, I like to dip them in sour cream or guacamole to give me the real chip feel. I dare you to give it a try!
Low Carb Chips
The one thing I miss the most on my ketogenic journey is chips. Salty, oily, crispy and flavorful bites of heaven. But, these Parmesan crisps bring me back to the days of eating chips at every lunch. Yes, we've tried flax seed crackers, pork rinds and even veggies as chip replacements, but these Parmesan crisps are by far the best! They taste even better after they sit out over night. You can leave them on the counter or store them in the fridge and they will crisp up even further.
Cheese Crisps with Jalapeno
We like to toss a jalapeno in the middle for some spice, but you can opt to leave it out or even get a little wild and toss on a pepperoni. The best part about adding something additional to the cheese is that whatever you use will give off extra flavor! When the Parmesan bakes up the jalapeno spice and flavor spreads throughout the entire crisp.
We want you to know these crisps are your chance to get a little wild. Throw on some crazy cheeses like blue or gouda - don't be scared! If you are a cheese lover you should also give our Zucchini Fries and Easy buffalo Chicken Dip a try. Those two cheesy recipes, along with these Parmesan Crisps will be appetizer hits at your next gathering, and no one will even know they are low carb.
