I've been making Parmesan crisps since I started low-carbing – they're quick to make (especially if you have the oven on already), only require one ingredient, and are a zero-carb tasty snack!

If you're looking for no carb chips – then this could be your answer! 

How to Make Parmesan Crisps

There are two ways to make them:

  1. On a silicone mat, put little heaps of shredded Parmesan and flatten them. Leave around 1-2″ between each little pile. Bake in the oven for 2-3 minutes until the cheese has melted and starts to turn golden brown at the edges. Leave to cool, slightly, then move to a cooling rack.

or

2. Use a muffin pan instead of the silicone mat, then cook as above.

The benefit of using a muffin pan is that the Parmesan crisps are much neater, and is the method that I have used in the photos shown here.

These are seriously good just like this. Two things to note: they can burn easily so don't get distracted while they are baking. Also, they are still soft when they come out of the oven – a fun thing to do is place them over the base of a small upturned bowl and create little Parmesan crisp spoons – ready to load up with whatever you like!

All that being said, here are some flavor suggestions for you to try! Here is finely chopped fresh chives and Chipotle powder:

My next batch was dry mustard powder and Italian seasoning:

And lastly, finely grated dark chocolate (I used a Microplane for this task and a tiny bit of Lily's Original Dark Chocolate – available from Amazon and Netrition).

The quantities and ratios are really up to you – I just added in what I felt was the right amount with each ingredient.

All five flavors together made a really lovely platter and a great talking point. My taste-testers weren't keen on chipotle so I ate all of those (I *love* chipotle) – smoked paprika would make a great substitute. We agreed that the chives and the Italian seasoning crisps were the best. The mustard version didn't taste like much at first; the mustard flavor came in at the end of eating. And the Parmesan and chocolate? Well, opinions were divided on that one – but I liked how unusual it was!

These look amazing! How do you keep them from sticking to the bottom of the muffin pans?

I use a non-stick pan - plus some of the fat from the cheese melts out as they cook and stops them sticking!

The nutritional data is based on using half a cup of shredded Parmesan, and serving two people. How many you make of each flavor, and how much cheese is in each crisp is up to you!
