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!

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.

  1. Hi,
    This looks like a wonderful cracker but I was wondering if there would be a replacement for the oil as I can’t consume oils or butters.

    Thank you.

    • Hello ! You probably can swap for an egg but it won’t be vegan anymore. I did not try the recipe other way so I can tell very much I am sorry. I hope you find lovely recipes that you can make on the blog. Enjoy ! XOXO Carine.

    Thanks for this awesome recipe! Constantly searching for recipes to replace high carb munchies for my diabetic sister!

    • It makes crispy chips and there are not flexible at all so I don’t see how you could make tortillas with this recipe. Check out my flaxseed wraps recipe for a low carb flexible tortilla here. XOXO Carine.

    This recipe made an awesome pie crust for a low carb coconut pie! I know its odd but the “chips” I made reminded me so much of pie crust that I had to try. I love this recipe in both forms. Next I want to add lemon flavoring and maybe a touch of sweetness for a cookie type thing. Thanks for this great recipie!

    • 5 stars
      Great idea, I was also thinking that may work for a pie crust and add extracts for different flavorings

      • I never used this recipe for a pie crust but that is a clever idea! Let me know how it goes if you give this a go 🙂 Have a lovely day, XOXO Carine.

    • Hello ! Nutrition panel per chips is provided after the recipe card. Scroll down for the full recipe panel but one chip 0.4 net carb and 20 cal. Enjoy the recipe. XOXO Carine.

  4. Can anything be used in place of chia seeds? I really do not enjoy them..but of course the main way I have had them was when they are used in a pudding,etc. So they are squishy lol.

      • I am not ure how gelatin will work but I love chia seeds as this adds an extra boost of fiber, good fat for healthy gut and it is keto too ! Enjoy the chips. XOXO Carine.

    • If you are not vegan, try an egg, but I am not sure if it will goes perfectly as I did not try myself. You won’t feel the texture or taste of chia seeds in those chips. Even if you are not a fan, give this a go you will love them 🙂 Enjoy XOXO Carine.

    • No I am sorry it must be almond meal/ground almond. Flaxmeal contains 20 times more fibre than almond and will soak up the liquid drying out the batter. It will be a completely different recipe. Enjoy the chips ! XOXO Carine.

    These are addicting! I just doubled the recipe to make more, as they didn’t last long in our home. We love chips and this fits our WOE just perfect. Thanks for sharing.

    • I am so glad to hear that ! same in my house my kids are crazy about those – specially when I add paprika in them 🙂 Enjoy the recipe on the blog and thanks for sharing your lovely feedback on that chips recipe. XOXO Carine.

    • Thanks ! You will love this recipe it is very easy and delicious ! Let me know what you think if you try it ! XOXO Carine.

    This sounds great! I’m doing low carb Paleo, which makes bread/chips really hard. I love almond flour, so I’m excited to try these! Thanks for the recipe! 🙂

    • Thanks Tina ! That is a great chip recipe, crunchy and a delicious nachos base – even better loaded with melted cheese 🙂 Enjoy the recipe and let me know how it goes! XOXO Carine.

    I made these today. I used parmesan cheese in place of the nutritional yeast but otherwise followed the recipe. They were DELICIOUS! Thank you for posting this recipe. It will help me stick to my low carb plan.

    • I wish there was a way to leave a comment without a rating as I can’t really rate this recipe since I couldn’t get it to work at all😅 I’m sure it’s my fault but I don’t know what I did wrong.

      I used an egg instead of the chia seeds and the mix never formed dough. It was like cornbread mix. I used a scale to measure the almond flour, so that isn’t the problem. I added a bunch more flour thinking that maybe my egg was extra large but while the mix got thicker, it never became dough. Any ideas?

      • The recipe is made with chia seed and water. Chia seed have fiber that absorb liquids and hold the dough together. If you replace them by an egg it won’t bind ingredients your ratio liquid/dry is too high. That’s why I don’t recommend using egg in this recipe. Try chia seed next time, or it you use an egg don’t the water!

    • Thanks for this lovely comment my friend. I am so glad it work out with parmesan too ! It is on my to do list for the next batch. Enjoy the low carb recipes on the blog. XOXO Carine.

        • Awesome idea! I am so glad you are sharing this with us, will definitely try the cheese addition next time. Enjoy the blog recipes and thanks for trying some. XOXO Carine.

    • Hi Jeff! Glad to see you on the blog too 🙂 Corn tortilla shells are great idea too. I am sure my kids will love it. Will give it a go this week end. Thanks for sharing your ideas. XOXO Carine.
