Life is SERIOUSLY better with low carb chips, because game-day, road trips, and appetizers are pretty darn boring without ‘em.
Let’s face it, if you’re eating low carb, one of the hardest foods to let go of is that salty crunch, America’s favorite snack: the humble chip. But, chips don’t exactly love us back, especially those of us sticking to low carb foods — in fact, your average serving of potato chips brings in about 15 grams of carbs. (and who eats only one serving…)
So, I tasted and recipe-tested around until I came up with this list of the most satiating and crunchy chips imaginable! Surely there are chips on this list just for you!
The tastiest, crunchiest, crispiest, most delicious low carb chips recipe are:
Low Carb Tortilla Chips
The problem with most chips and crackers is they’re not as “crispy” as the store bought versions we crave. Which is why I paid special attention to the crunch factor when creating this low carb tortilla chips recipe.
If you haven’t tried parmesan crisps yet, then you’re gonna love me for this one. Parmesan crisps are essentially no carb tortilla chips, made of, you guessed it, parmesan! Mix in some herbs and spices to compliment whatever you’ll be serving these chips with and you’ll never want another crispy treat.
Bacon + Cheddar Cheese Chips
It’s hard to get tired of baked cheese chips, especially when they’re combined with sauteed onions and crispy bacon. Your chip game just got that much more impressive. You’re welcome.
Bake cheese chips into whatever shape you’d like — you can form small mounds, or cut them with a pizza cutter to create a sharp, triangular shape.
Looking for crunchy low carb veggies to scoop your low carb appetizers? Unfortunately, most of the vegetables used to make veggie chips are high in carbs: sweet potatoes, beets, and parsnips are the obvious chip alternatives.
Eggplant chips are significantly lower in carbs, and every bit as craveble. Psst — these chips are covered in BBQ seasoning, need I say more?
Class up your chip cravings with these buttery cheese crackers. Baked with fresh herbs inside, these cheese crackers are the perfect vehicle for whatever cheese and charcuterie you’re craving.
Personal bias, these fathead crackers are my favorite chips on the list. Made of cream cheese, mozzarella and almond flour, coated in a crust of “everything but the bagel seasoning”. They’re slice and bake, easy to make, and ridiculously addicting.
No Crust Pizza Chips
Similar to the parmesan crisps above, these no crust pizza chips have a pepperoni stashed in the center, for a portable, crunchy, pizza – low carb chips keto concoction you’ll love.
Pesto Parmesan Chips
Think of the tastiest low carb foods baked into chips, and you’ve got these pesto parmesan chips. Pesto, parmesan and sun dried tomatoes — you don’t have to be eating low carb or keto to love ’em!
Oh ya, you can totally make your own chips from pepperoni. Just bake until crispy and dip your pepperoni chips in whatever you have on hand! Sprinkle with parmesan, and dip in low carb pizza sauce for the win.
Bacon chips use the same logic as the chips above. If you’re not a fan of cooking bacon in the oven, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at bacon’s dipp-ability once cooked into a crispy, crunchy vehicle. Psst, I’ve heard rumors of bacon chips dipped in low carb chocolate, thoughts?
When you want a chip, you want a chip. And sometimes you don’t have time (or the desire) to chop ingredients and preheat the oven for keto chips. In that case, here are some delicious low carb chips to buy! Grab most of these low carb chips at Walmart!

Perfect for when you’re craving cheese crisps, but don’t feel like making them. They’re slightly more expensive, but dang, they’re good.Side note, Whisps are the reason for my cheese crisp obsession. The grocery store stopped selling them, and I started making them!

I’m not a huge pork rind-on-their-own-gal (although I use them in my low carb breadcrumbs). My opinion aside, these are the textbook low carb snacks on the go.
I prefer the Epic brand of pork rinds — they’re antibiotic free and are MUCH tastier.
