I can say no to a lot of things when it comes to the naughty foods out there—especially when I’m motivated to keep my healthy 2018 resolutions. Candy bars? I’ll pass. Ice cream? Delish, but not tempting enough (most of the time). Cake and frosting? No thanks. Chips? Now, that is next level weakness for me.

Just writing about the salty, crispy goodness is making my mouth water. I’m not saying the recipe below will be better than a big bag of potato chips, but from one chip fanatic to another, they’ll do. Plus, knowing they are good for you definitely helps reduce the void of chips I seem to always feel in my heart—and stomach. Try them out and switch up the seasoning (garlic salt, Cajun seasoning, different essential oils, etc.) to fit your flavor preference and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at how good these little guys are.
