Cheese Chips

I love a crunchy potato chip, but sometimes I don’t love the carbs that come with it. These Cheese Chips are amazing snack options for anyone on a low carb diet and make the perfect dippers for your favorite dips and sauces!

I experimented with a variety of cheese to find the best one for this recipe. My favorite is the shredded Mexican cheese you buy in the bag. I found it made the crispiest cheese chips out of all the cheeses I tried!

Though I’ve been making this recipe for a while, I discovered another easy recipe to enjoy using a different kind of cheese. Parmesan Crisps are equally delicious, low carb and super easy to make! Dip them in a little marinara sauce for the perfect pizza snack!

    You’ll want the Cheese Chips to look a little crispy so they’ll keep their shape once they cool. If you overcook them, it’s not really a big deal — you’ll just have a crispier chip. Just be careful to not burn them as they do bake quickly!


    • Shredded cheese — that’s it!

    Looking for more of a kick? Feel free to season the cheese just before baking. This would go great with paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, taco seasoning, or Italian seasoning! Try matching your dip style with your seasoning preference!

    What I used for my Cheese Chips

    This post contains affiliate links.

    1. Sheet pan: Everyone needs a sturdy sheet pan, and this is my favorite. The raised sides are great for roasting meat and veggies without overflow!

    Sometimes I make these for a party, but sometimes it’s just for me. The best part about this recipe is it’s easy to make as many or as few as you need with no changing of measurements and cook times!

    How to Make Cheese Chips

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Lay parchment paper across 2 (or 3, depending on your space needs!) baking sheets.
    2. Add cheese to the baking sheet, about 1 tablespoon per chip. Much like cookies, make sure to leave room between your cheese piles as they will spread as they cook!
    3. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the chips begin to crisp. Remove from heat and allow to chill and set for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove chips from parchment paper and serve with your favorite dipping sauce!

    I think these go great with a pizza sauce, but any dip will complement these crunchy Cheese Chips like guacamole, salsa, buffalo dip, ranch, even a cheese dip!

    How to store Cheese Chips

    Since these chips are made with perishable ingredients, they have to be stored in the refrigerator and can last up to 72 hours before they get soft — if you have leftovers at all!

    Pro-tip: Usually I’d say store everything that’s cooked in an air-tight container, but not these. Store your cheese chips in a paper bag folded and clipped close to help absorb the additional moisture from the chips and the humidity from the fridge to keep these chips crispy longer!

    How to use Cheese Chips

    Dips and snacks are my first to-go for these crunchy, carb-free discs, but sometimes I make WAY too many and have to find other uses for them.

    These are a great crunchy alternative to add to a salad, or a fun element to add with your tomato basil soup instead of grilled cheese!

    One fun part of this recipe is, before they cool, you can easily mold or shape them into other forms! Place them over the underside of a muffin tin before cooling and use them as mini cheese bowls, or roll them into tubes to be stuffed for a fancy keto appetizer.

    The options are endless with these delicious chips!

    • 1 ½ cups shredded cheese
    • Italian seasoning optional
    • pizza sauce for dipping


    • Preheat oven to 375°F. Lay a piece of parchment paper on two baking sheets.
    • Add cheese to baking sheet, about 1 tablespoon per chip. Make sure to leave enough room in between them so they aren’t touching.
    • Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until starting to crisp. Remove from heat and let cool about 5 to 10 minutes. Carefully remove from baking sheet and serve with your favourite dip. I like them with pizza sauce.


    I’ve experimented with different types of cheese. Parmesan works great, but my favourite is the shredded Mexican cheese that comes in a resealable bag.

    1. how long do these keep for? do you have to refridgerate?

      1. They taste the best if you eat them hot and fresh out of the oven. If you can’t enjoy right away, then refrigerate, but they won’t be as tasty unfortunately!

    2. I’ve never tried these but they look so tasty

    3. Michele Pelkonen says:

      I just made these, and while the taste is good (ok, great!), the chip itself is kinda chewy, rather than crispy. I did two different kinds: parm and cheddar. Both were spread thin, and I cooked them the full 7 minutes, and they were brown around the edges. The brown parts are crispy, but that’s just because it was within a moment of burning. I’ve left them out, but they haven’t crisped up. Is it solely the type of cheese — so if I use the Mexican blend they might be crispier?

      1. I find they vary greatly depending on the type of cheese you use. Just experiment with the different cheeses until you find one that you like. I like the Mexican blend.

    4. Hi how to ensure that the cheese does not stick to parchment paper? Thanks

      1. There is enough grease in the cheese so that it doesn’t stick.

    5. I just made these and although they are very delicious they are sticking to the parchment paper. Is there a trick? Or perhaps cooking spray first?

      1. You could try using cooking spray and see if that is any better. I use a metal spatula to remove them and they are fine for me.

    6. Good idea for a snack, we experimented with 3 mini peperoni, I let them melt a few minutes before adding and topped with a small pinch of parmesan. I could have fun with this. I also baked a little longer.
