Parmesan Crisps

The crunch of a crisp or cracker is the one thing I miss most since I went grain, gluten and sugar free.  These days there are vegetable crisps on the market which fill a small void but I’ve come up with a crispy crunchy snack that is so delicious and so decadent.  Behold my Parmesan Crisps!  So easy to make and just 1 ingredient!  Parmesan really is the only ingredient in these delicious snacks.  I love topping them with guacamole or dipping them into salsa!  Yum!  They only take 10 minutes, so here’s how to make them!Parmesan Crisps by Emma Eats & Explores - SCD, Paleo, Grainfree, glutenfree, Low Carb, LCHF, SugarFree

Start by preheating the oven to 160C (320F).  Quite a low heat is essential so that the cheese doesn’t burn.  Then, line a baking sheet with grease proof paper.

Next up is to grate the Parmesan.  I used my food processor to speed things up but it shouldn’t take long doing it by hand.  Once all the Parmesan is grated, place a small mound of cheese (about 1 tbsp) on the grease proof paper and shape into a vague circle.

Repeat this step until you have covered the baking tray making sure not to place the individual mounds too close together as they will spread out a bit as they melt.  An inch or so around each one should be plenty.Parmesan Crisps by Emma Eats & Explores - SCD, Paleo, Grainfree, glutenfree, Low Carb, LCHF, SugarFree


Then just pop the tray into the oven and bake the Parmesan Crisps until they start to change colour (about 5 mins).  They will melt first and then the longer you cook them the darker colour they turn.  You want it so that they just start to turn golden brown colour.

Remove the Parmesan Crisps from the oven and allow to cool.  They will be soft until they have cooled at which point they will become firm and crisp.  Once cool they should peel off of the grease proof paper very easily.Parmesan Crisps by Emma Eats & Explores - SCD, Paleo, Grainfree, glutenfree, Low Carb, LCHF, SugarFreeThen you can serve with your favourite dips – I like mine with guacamole or salsa!  Or you could use them as a base for canapés! I served these at a recent cocktail party and they were gone in seconds!  Everyone preferred them to the crisps I’d also put out!  I’m going to have to make double the amount next time!

Enjoy crunching away – you wont be able to stop at one!  What would you serve Parmesan Crisps with?  I need some more inspiration!Parmesan Crisps by Emma Eats & Explores - SCD, Paleo, Grainfree, glutenfree, Low Carb, LCHF, SugarFree
