Bad name. Tasty snack

(Will knit for bacon. ) #1

They’re not super low-carb - 9 grams net per serving, 12 if you do total - but for an occasional chips craving they’re darn good.

9 net grams of carbs per 28 grams. 33% carbs. I’ll pass. Thanks anyway.


If it’s chips you want, cheese crisps are easy to make in the microwave, with almost no net carbs.

I can turn a 12-slice package of cheese into cheese crisps in less than 10 minutes (4 batches; 3 slices per batch; 2 minutes per batch). You can use silicon cupcake molds, but I find the 3-well and 6-well silicon trays so much easier to load and unload. I’ve created crisps with sliced cheeses, sliced off from blocks, and shredded. They all work.

But you really need the silicon molds to keep their shape and texture consistent. I used to make them on parchment paper or a silicon mat, and they tend to spread all over when the cheese gets molten.


Thanks for the idea of putting in a mold. I don’t do them, just get the Whisps at Costco, I tried on parchment paper and didn’t like the results.

I think I’ll try doing them with the Everything but the bagel mix. After the Zornfast is over, I’m in fasting mode currently.
