I love Blue Corn tortilla chips and I love cheese chips! Obviously that just isn’t going to work in a low-carb, grain free lifestyle. I tried making endurance crackers from Oh She Glows:( http://ohsheglows.com/2012/01/31/endurance-crackers/) and they were very good. They also showed me what can be done with chia seeds! So I fiddled around and have come up with these. You can cut them any size you like – I ended up making just 8 large ones but you can double the recipe or cut them into diamonds half the size (probably what I would do next time). They hit the tortilla chip spot for me. I hope they will do the same for you, too!
- Parmesan cheese 1oz/30g
- Chia Seeds 2tbsp/30g
- Ground Almonds 2tbsp/20g
- Garlic Salt ¼tsp
- Water 150ml/6fl.oz
- Preheat oven to 350F, 180C, Gas Mark 4. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Grate or finely chop the parmesan, then put all the ingredients into a blender and whizz for several seconds. Leave to stand about 5 minute to allow the chia seeds to develop their gel.
- Turn mixture out onto the sheet and spread thinly with the back of a spoon. Try to get it even, patching any breaks.
- Bake for 30 minutes or until golden, remove sheet and slice into desired shapes. Flip them over and return to the oven for 20-30 minutes more. Keep an eye, if they get too brown they will taste burnt. When golden remove from oven, let cool and enjoy!
