Ask The Protein Powder Chef: Is There Any Way To Make Protein Chips?
I have a passion for weightlifting, nutrition, and great-tasting food. Ask me a question and I'll turn it into a protein-filled, delicious recipe!
Q: Anna! Make my snacking dreams come true. Do you know a recipe for protein tortilla chips?
You can make sweet potato chips very easily. Just slice a sweet potato (raw or partly cooked) very thin. Stick the slices in an oven with some olive oil or Pam, salt and pepper, and if you'd like, dried herbs like rosemary or thyme. There you have it: sweet potato chips. These potato chips are healthier because they're complex carbs, but they're not exactly packed with protein power.
My protein chips are more like tortilla chips you can dip into all sorts of things like guacamole, salsa, cream cheese, or hummus. They're far healthier than store-bought tortilla chips and pack a healthy serving of protein ka-POW!
Here's the recipe:
Protein Tortilla Chips
- Try adding cheese and pizza herbs like rosemary, thyme, and a half-tablespoon of tomato paste to the batter. Pizza-flavored chips are not just for the kids!
- Adding flaxseed to your batter ensures that your tortilla chips end up even crunchier and delivers some omega-3 fatty acids.
- For another delicious option, blend in some sun-dried tomatoes. They're perfect with hummus or baba ghanoush.
