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!
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.
