Ingredients

  • 4.5 ounces shaved Parmesan cheese (128 grams)
  • salt, to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a dark cookie sheet (14 inches x 17 inches/35.6 x 43.2 cm will fit the entire recipe) with parchment paper. Use a food scale to measure out the Parmesan cheese.
  • Divide the shaved Parmesan cheese into 16 small heaps on the cookie sheet. Make sure the heaps are evenly spaced on the sheet.
  • Put the cookie sheet in the oven and bake of 7-8 minutes. They will have lightly browned and crisp edges when they are done.
  • After baking, remove the cookie sheet from the oven and sprinkle the hot chips with some salt. Let the crisps cool for 5-10 minutes. They should be firm and peel off the parchment paper easily once they have cooled. Bon appetit!

Notes

This is a level 1 recipe (may help support fat loss). The serving size here is only ¼ of the recipe (4 chips). However, I think you'll find these protein-packed chips far more satisfying than your typical potato chip.
Additionally, there won't be leftovers hanging around if you have cheese-loving family members in your household. Over here at least, these chips disappeared shortly after cooling off.
One ounce of regular potato chips provides approximately 150 calories and 2 grams of protein. In comparison, one serving of these cheese crisps weighs 1.125 ounces/31.9 grams and is about 100 calories with 10 grams of protein. I consider these high protein chips to be a nutritional win over your standard potato chip.
That said, if you know you have a propensity to overeat cheese, this might not be the best snack option for you. One factor that can stall weight loss in those following ketogenic or low-carb diets is the overconsumption of cheese and nuts. These foods pack a lot of calories into a small volume.
Even if you are not explicitly counting calories, you still need to maintain a calorie deficit to lose weight. It can be useful to know which items are more energy-dense if you have a weight loss goal, regardless of your dietary approach.
Nutrition information is for one serving of the recipe.
