4 Paleo Chips You Should Be Making at Home

Posted on June 26 2016

Everyone loves chips. They're something to do as much as they are a snack. They're crunchy, salty, and perfect for when you're watching TV or at a bbq. Unfortunately, they're usually made with potatoes which are high on the glycemic index. Not to mention, chips are usually cooked in toxic vegetable oils.

Paleo chips can be made at home.

Chips don't necessarily have to be white potatoes. Nor, do they have to be made with cheap veggie oils. Here are some non-traditional chip recipes to enjoy.

  • Salt to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Slice beets and sweet potatoes into thin layers, about 1/8 of an inch (use a mandolin if possible) Place slices in a large bowl and toss with olive oil
  2. Evenly spread slices on a baking sheet (be sure they are not stacked on top of one another) and season with salt
  3. Bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping the chips halfway through. Remove when beets lighten in color. They will crisp up when cool.

BUTTERNUT SQUASH CHIPS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 butternut squash, about 2 lb (1 kg), peeled, halved, and seeded
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1–2 tablespoons herbes de Provence
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Use a sharp knife or a mandoline to cut the butternut squash into thin slices. Transfer the slices to a large bowl and drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle with the herbes de Provence, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 ⁄2 teaspoon pepper. Toss to coat evenly.
  2. Transfer the squash to the prepared baking sheets. Try to spread the slices in a single layer. Roast for 20 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350°F and roast until they begin to curl, about 30 minutes longer. Let cool, then break into smaller pieces and serve. The chips will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
