beet chips 550

Potato chips may be every snacker’s best friend, but there’s nothing slightly healthy about this greasy and fatty eat. Next time you’re at the market resist the urge to venture down the chip aisle and instead, change up your snack routine with this healthy version of the classic potato chip that uses beats instead of potatoes and a baking method instead of deep frying. A special thanks to Best Cleanse Recipes for this great beet chip idea.

4 medium beets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon seas salt

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray two baking sheets with cooking spray. Peel beets and thinly slice (1/16-inch) with a mandolin.

2. Toss beet slices in a large bowl with olive oil and salt. If using a combo of red beets and golden beets, place them in separate bowls. The red beets will discolor the golden beets.

3. Lay beets on baking sheet. They can be touching but not overlapping.

4. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Bake just a touch too long and they will burn around the edges, but you want to bake them long enough for them to lose most of their moisture. They crisp up as they cool.
