Are classic Tortilla Chips Keto?

No, regular tortilla chips are not keto-friendly. Most tortilla chips are made with corn. Since corn is on the high-carb side of the keto-friendly vegetable spectrum, corn chips are not keto-friendly.

Can I find keto-friendly commercial tortillas?

There are a few healthy brands of chia seed tortilla chips in the supermarket that are low in carbs. However, most store-bought low-carb chips are very expensive!

That’s why making yours make so much sense. It’s cheap. It’s quick. It’s healthy.

How to make homemade keto tortilla chips?

To make these simple almond flour chips, you need 4 simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry.

  • Almond flour – sometimes called almond meal or ground almond – all are similar. I used blanched almond flour, but unblanched almond flour would work well. Only the color of the low-carb tortilla chips would differ. Learn how to choose the best flours for your keto diet.
  • Chia seeds – I used black chia seeds. Use the one you have. Any color would work here.
  • Spices of your choice –  play with the spices and create various low-carb tortilla chip flavors! I love to combine ground cumin, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast – this gives a cheesy flavor while adding lots of vitamins B1 and B2. Other great ideas are smoked paprika, paprika, dried rosemary, curry powder, or even turmeric!
  • Olive oil – I also tried the recipe with different healthy oils like avocado oil, almond oil, and hazelnut oil. It is a great way to give a different flavor to the chips.

How to make crispy vegan keto chips?

I have 3 simple tips to make crispy almond flour tortilla chips:

  1. The thinner, the better – follow my technique below – I roll my dough between two pieces of parchment paper – this is A MUST. Pressing the rolling pin really well to make the dough super thin. Using parchment paper is not optional. It prevents the dough from sticking to the roller. It makes the dough super thin. And it makes the transfer of the chips onto the baking tray super easy – all you need to do is to lift the piece of parchment paper and move it. No need to move the rolled dough!
  2. Baking at hot temperature and checking every minute – usually, thin tortilla chips are all cooked all the way after only 6 minutes, but depending on how thin they are, they may require an extra minute. I recommend checking the color of the tortilla chips every minute after 6 minutes of baking. Most of the time, they are cooked, but sometimes I roll my chips a bit thicker, and it takes up to 8 minutes. The color is your indicator. If it is golden brown, then it is ready!
  3. Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet– this makes them extra crispy! Don’t skip this step or your gluten-free tortilla chip recipe will be too soft!

  • Preheat the oven to 200° C (390°F).
  • In a small bowl, add the chia seeds and water. Stir with a spoon to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes or until a gel-like texture forms. 
  • In another large mixing bowl, add almond meal, olive oil, spices, and the chia seed gel created before.
  • Knead dough by hands, squeezing it between your fingers to incorporate the chia gel into the almond meal until it forms a dough. It shouldn't take more than 1 minute to form a dough ball. 
  • Place the dough ball between two pieces of parchment paper, and roll out with a rolling pin as thinly as possible. 
  • Remove the top layer of parchment paper, cut out tortillas chips using a pizza cutter or sharp knife. To make triangle chips (tortilla shaped), simply place a round shape on top of the rolled dough. Cut around the lid, remove the dough outside of the lid - keep it for later to roll again and make more chips! You should end up with a circle of rolled dough. One circle creates about 10 chips, and you will roll 3 circles in total. Then, using the pizza cutter, cut triangles as you would when cutting a round cake.
  • Move the dough with parchment paper onto a baking sheet.
  • Bake for 6 minutes, check the color, and stop baking as soon as you reach a golden brown color. For very thin chips, it takes 6-7 minutes. For thicker chips, it can take up to 8-9 minutes. I recommend baking for 6 minutes then checking every 1 minute to avoid burning the chips. 
  • Remove from the oven when golden brown and let cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet.
  • Use a flat tool like a knife or small spatula to remove/lift the tortillas chips from the parchment paper. 
  • Serve with my simple avocado dip recipe or dip of your choice.
Storage: Store for up to 5 days in an airtight container - they will slightly soften after 3 days but you can rewarm them 1 minute at 75C (160F) just before serving to give them some crisp again. I recommend a metallic box or glass jar to keep the tortillas very crispy. 
Freezing: I don't recommend freezing these chips. They will lose their crisp.
Spices ideas: feel free to experiment with dried herbs like rosemary, oregano, onion flakes, smoked paprika, turmeric powder, curry powder, or even matcha powder!
Salt: the recipe uses only 1/4 teaspoon of salt, which keeps the chips low in sodium and healthy. If you love salty chips, feel free to add more salt but don't exceed 1/2 teaspoon.

    This recipe is a keeper, I don’t know why I waited to long, I love that is dairy/egg free….quick and easy….can see a lot of potential for other uses, thank you!!!

  2. Hi, my husband can’t have chia seeds due to diverticulitis. Can I grind flax seeds before usiing them in the recipe?

  3. 5 stars
    In place of the seasoning, maybe replace it with popcorn toppers? They have cheese flavored ones, and would still be 0 carb and vegan. Thoughts?

    Hi Carine,
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. Now I am living in France and there is not a lot of keto food options around here (or maybe I couldn’t find them). I love your recipes. I made this cracker, one batch with vanilla and another I used matcha. I want some snack and this work well. I made it a bit too thin and it burned so fast. But my husband loves them. Anyways thank you so much.
    Merci beaucoup et bonne année.

    • Hi ! I have been to France last year and I agree, keto food is hard to find. I am so glad you enjoy the chips. Enjoy the blog. XOXO Carine. A bientot et bonne annee.

    I baked these tortilla chips yesterday….they are absolutely deliscious!!! Will be making these on a regular badis for sure!! Thank you souch for sharing this recipe.

    • Thank you so much for the lovely comment. It makes me very happy to read it today. Enjoy the chips and the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

    • No I am sorry it won’t work. The chia seeds in this recipe act like an egg. Chia seeds lots of fibres that create a egg like texture when soaked in water. Sesame seeds barely contains fibre and won’t provide the eggy texture required to make the tortillas chips dough comes together. I hope you find some chia seeds to try this delicious recipes. Thanks for trying my blog recipes. XOXO Carine.

    I’ve made these before and absolutely love them. Was trying to quickly satisfy a sweet craving and get rid of some lwft over almond flour so this last batch I used liquid stevia and cinnamon to make some quick crispy graham cracker substitutes. Not 100% the same but really hit the spot for something crunchy and sweet!

    • WOW, that is a great idea! I never thought about making those sweet but that is interesting and I want to try. Thanks for trying my recipes and sharing your lovely feedback and experience. XOXO Carine.

    • What a great idea to add cheese in those tortillas chips ! Thanks for sharing and hue thank you for trying my recipe too! XOXO Carine.

    These are delicious! Thank you so much. For the person asking about oil, I accidentally forgot to put it in and they were still incredible. I am going to try making them into bowls!

    • Oh thank you for that comment! I would never thought it will work well withou oil too 🙂 I am so happy you enjoy them. Have a lovely time on the blog. XOXO Carine

    • Thank you SO much for sharing your positive experience on those tortillas! I am so happy your family love it too. Always one of my kids favorite snack as well. Enjoy the recipes on the blog. Love from NZ, Carine.

    • No I am so sorry this recipe can’t work with coconut flour. There is too much fibre in coconut flour, it will soak up all the liquid and won’t hold together. This is a almond based recipe. However, you can try my flaxseed crackers instead! It is nut free and low carb !!! Enjoy the blog. XOXO Carine.

    Hello! I LOVE, LOVE this recipe and have made it many times. One thing that keeps happening is, the dough sticks to the top parchment paper when I peel it off (not entirely but in spots). I have tried lightly greasing the paper and /or adding a bit more almond flour. Any ideas? Thanks!

    • Hi,
      I had the same problem and used non-stick spray liberally and waited a bit after I rolled out the dough before I removed the top parchment sheet. That combination seemed to work.

    • Thanks SO much for your comment! It is weird that the dough stick to your parchment paper even if you oil it !? Did you try using a different brand of baking paper? I recently switch to unbleached baking paper and I love it! No sticking issue anymore even with cookies. Let me know ! XOXO Carine.

    Omg these are delicious and so easy to make! Thanks for sharing!
    I added extra nutritional yeast! Luv the flavor so don’t skimp! Lol.

    • Thanks for his beautiful feedback! It makes me very happy to read that. I love the addition of nutritional yeast as well but my kids are not big fans that is why I said it is optional. But, agree that extra flavor is amazing! XOXO Carine.

    I don’t know how you came up with this recipe – but, IT’S FABULOUS!!! I’m following KETO and this fits perfectly – one of the best cracker recipes by far – actually – one of the best recipes for anything!!! Simple to make, and so well worth it – crispy deliciousness!!! Thank you so much!!

    • HAHA thank YOU! I love low carb recipes and my husband is vegan so I am trying new things everyday and sometimes it comes out great as those tortillas and post them on the blog! I also love to make flaxseed crackers if you want something different next time. There is barely 0.5 g net carb per cracker. Enjoy the blog and THANKS for this lovely comment XOXO Carine.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I just made these and they are amazing!! They are perfect for my Keto diet! I feel like I can now have chips/crackers with my soups and dips! Did I miss the nutrition information though?

    • I am so glad you love those chips ! I love my low carb crackers and chips too – keep an eye on the blog I should share more very soon 😀 The nutrition panel is always posted after the recipe card, just scroll a bit further. But be assure those are super low carb 0.4 net carb per chips (recipe makes 30 chips). Enjoy the blog! XOXO Carine.

  13. Can I use almond flour? It’s much finer than almond meal so I wanted to make sure I could use it.

    Hi your recipes are amazing!!! I just want to make sure; when you say the recipe makes for example 4 servings and that the Calories are 100, is it 100 per serving or is it 100 divided by 4 so 25 cal per serving?

    • Hello! In the recipe card shows the serving, like 4 means you can serve 4 portions of chips, calorie is for ONE serving so no need to divide anything. If it says 100 cal it is for one serving and you will have 4 serving in the recipe. A full nutrition panel is always provided after the recipe card, simply scroll down and it will be very clear, per serving again with all the data breakdown including carbs, fibres, fat etc. Enjoy the recipes on the blog and the low carb chips ! XOXO Carine.
