LCHF crisps

Potatoes are full of starch, which means they are high in carbohydrate. Therefore potato crisps really aren’t on the radar when living the LCHF lifestyle. However, with less than 4% of carbohydrate per 100 grams of food, aubergine is great for making LCHF crisps. A healthy and delicious crispy snack, which is easy to make.

LCHF crisps

Ingredients:

  • 1 aubergine, preferably organic
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Onion powder or garlic powder to taste
  • Salt & black pepper

Preparation:

Prepare a baking tray with baking paper (not aluminium foil) and set the oven to 220 degrees Celsius. Slice the aubergine in 3-5 mm thin slices. The thinner rounds, the crispier they will be. Pour extra virgin olive oil on a plate. To give the crisps a nice taste, add onion powder or garlic powder, salt and black pepper to the olive oil and stir. Here you can of course alternate with whatever spices you prefer. Dip the aubergine slices one by one lightly in the olive oil and place on the baking paper. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes each side – all in all 20 minutes or until dark brown and crispy.

Enjoy these delicious low-carb high-fat crisps and stay healthy.

  1. Hallå där! Vilken intressant och inspirerande blogg du har – perfekt för en lchf-frälst typ som jag 🙂 Har käkat lchf några år nu, men aldrig kommit på tanken att göra auberginechips. Det ska testas! Ser ju urläckert ut!

  2. Thanks for your positive feedback! The LCHF crisps are indeed really delicious and yummy! A perfect snack 🙂 Enjoy!

  3. Hi there
    I would suggest using coconut oil instead of olive oil.
    Olive oil is fantastic if used in salads etc, but not heated, it changes properties and then becomes very bad for you.

    1. Thanks Ana for your comment, I will certainly try my LCHF crisps with coconut oil. Thanks!
