Crunch on your favorite snack chip - the tortilla chips - with this keto tortilla chip recipe. These chips are super crispy and perfect for scooping up your favorite low carb dip.
There are some foods that we really miss on the keto diet and chips is one of them. Right now, to satisfy that need for a crunchy snack, we only have pork rinds.
I make it my mission to turn our favorite foods into keto versions like crackers or french fries and these tortilla chips are no exception.
1. Make dough by combining almond flour, unflavored protein powder, xanthan gum, salt and water. 2. Roll out dough very thin. 3. Cut into triangle shapes using a knife or pizza cutter. 4. Fry in avocado oil until golden brown.
Almond flour – This nut flour is the base for our chips. Using almond flour yields a nutty flavor and provides substance to our chip. Almond flour also turns golden brown as it fries.
Protein powder – This ingredient is what makes these chips crunchy and crispy. You can’t substitute the protein powder and you shouldn’t omit it. Make sure you select unflavored or else your chips may have a strange sweet flavor.
Xanthan gum – The gum is what holds the dough together. It makes it pliable for rolling and frying. You may be able to substitute with other gums like guar gum; however, I haven’t experiment with that.
2/3 cup almond flour 1 tablespoon xanthan gum 3 tablespoons hot water
