Ingredients for Making Cheese Chips
- Cheese — I recommend sharp cheddar for the best flavor. If possible, grate your own instead of buying shredded cheddar cheese, which uses anti-caking agents that add carbs. Mozzarella or parmesan cheese can be substituted for half of the cheddar.
- Egg whites — These help give the Cheese Chips texture and bind everything together.
- Almond flour — Make sure you’re using almond flour as opposed to almond meal.
- Seasoning — Garlic powder, smoked paprika, and a little salt add an extra pop of flavor. If you would like a bit of heat, add cayenne pepper. Of course, feel free to adjust the spices to your liking.
Tips & Tricks
- Don’t skip the parchment paper, or it will be very hard to roll out the Cheese Chip dough, and it will stick to the pan.
- Don’t forget to remove the top piece of parchment paper before freezing or stacking. Otherwise, the paper could stick to the top of the chips.
- To make the Baked Cheddar Chips easier to break apart, you can score the dough before or after freezing.
