Indulge in your favorite snack the healthier way with these quick and healthy potato chips. These are super simple, gluten free, and vegan!
Got a craving for something crunchy and savory? Don’t reach for a bag of Lay’s potato chips – make up some of your own chips that are fat-free! These chips can be whipped up less than 10 minutes from start to finish, and best of all you can season these any way you want. Can’t beat that!
If I am around town, I love buying the Kettle Brand Baked potato chips, which are whole potatoes and not made from pureed potatoes like Baked Lay’s. Kettle Baked chips can be a bit pricey, though, so I don’t buy them often.
If these are something you like, you can save quite a bit of money by making these baked potato chips yourself. I would love to try this recipe using sweet potatoes some time…

Healthy (and Quick!) Potato Chips
- 1 russet potato cleaned and unpeeled
- Seasonings of choice
- Parchment paper
- Using a mandoline slicer, slice the potato into thin pieces, about 1/16 inch thick. Line a microwaveable plate with parchment paper. Arrange the potato pieces on the plate so they are not touching each other. Sprinkle any seasonings you like on the potatoes.
- Microwave the potato slices on high for 5-6 minutes or until the slices are lightly browned and crisp. Enjoy!
- If you feel like making a larger batch of chips without over-using your microwave, you can bake these on a parchment line cookie sheet at 400 degrees F until crisp, 12-30 minutes.
