34 Crunchy Recipes for Paleo Chips

34 Crunchy Recipes for Paleo Chips

The post 34 Crunchy Recipes for Paleo Chips appeared first on Paleo Flourish.

Do you miss the flavor of those crunchy, crispy potato chips you used to buy before you started eating Paleo?

I used to get terrible cravings for chips, and the urge to go and eat a whole bag of them was getting out of hand. That’s when I started looking into Paleo alternatives.

There are plenty of Paleo approved chips that you can make at home – and it’s a lot easier than you think!

Our list of 34 delicious Paleo chip recipes includes everything from kale chips to plantain chips, and once you realize how simple these are to make, you’ll want to try one every day of the week.

Any of these chips will make a great Paleo snack; enjoy them with Paleo-friendly dips, add to a bowl of your favorite soup, serve as a healthy movie night snack, or grab a bag of these with you when you leave for work.

Trying one (or ten) of these chip recipes is a great way to make sure your snack is 100% Paleo and healthy. You won’t have to worry about what’s in them – and you can spice them up any way you’d like, to create new, mouthwatering flavors.

If the recipe requires slicing the ingredients, I recommend trying to make the slices as thin as possible. The thinner they are, the crispier the end result – and I’m pretty sure we all prefer super crunchy chips!

I like to make small portions of these, at a time, instead of larger batches. First of all, because they are too hard to resist – and second, because in my opinion they taste even better when they are freshly made. With recipes as easy as these, you won’t mind whipping up a new batch every day.

Here are just a few of the Paleo Chip Recipes we’ve included:
