Do you love savory and crunchy snacks as much as I do? There’s something about munching on salty potato chips that just bring back happy childhood memories. However, my metabolism isn’t as fast as it was when I was a kid.

After losing twenty pounds via a low carb lifestyle, I’m more conscious of what I put into my body; my mentality about portion control and eating lower carb foods have helped me to maintain my weight-loss, have a steady energy level, and reduce stomach bloat. But I still have cravings for junk foods like chips. Through my partnership with Real California Milk, I discovered that I could create my own healthier keto-friendly snacks baking with asiago, dry jack, or romano cheeses to make crunchy crisps. The flavors and textures of these cheeses are similar to parmesan. However, I recommend baking with these cheeses because they come from California dairies, which 99% are family run establishments; I have to give my state lots of love and support. Here’s my recipe for my Rosemary and Garlic Asiago Cheese Chips:
Ingredients:

3/4 cup of shredded or crumbled Real California Milk asiago cheese (* optional romano or dry jack)

2 tbsp of minced fresh rosemary

2 tbsp of garlic powder

12”x17” non-stick baking sheet (or parchment paper)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300F
  2. Evenly mix the Real California cheese, rosemary, and garlic powder
  3. Place 1 tbsp of the cheese mixture on a non-stick baking tray about 2” apart from each other; flatten each pile so it will bake and crisp evenly. If you use parchment paper, be sure to generously spray it with a cooking oil to prevent them from sticking to the paper.
  4. Bake 6-8 min until it’s golden brown
  5. Carefully remove the tray from the oven and let the chips cool (10 min) on the baking sheet.

And if you have a slight sweet-tooth, I also recommended mixing cranberries to the mix. If you’re curious about where to find these Real California cheeses, click HERE for a product locator.
